Three great places to eat and drink in the Victorian capital.
Mercury is not the only thing rising in Melbourne as summer approaches. The Victorian capital's food scene is making headlines, too, starting with the goings-on at Queen Victoria Market. One of the city's most popular dining destinations - for both locals and visitors - the precinct is replacing its old food court with the brand-new Queen's Food Hall in November.
Some of Melbourne's most revered food and beverage haunts will have a presence here, with Bellboy Coffee Bar taking care of your caffeine cravings; The Happy Mexican delivering authentic burritos, nachos and quesadillas; and El Rincon satiating the crowds with mega platters of paella.
In the mood for something more delicate? Head to Melbourne Marriott Hotel, where a New York-style high tea has just arrived, complete with pastrami bagels and Bahamian lobster sliders.
