How did Melbourne's 'laneway culture' come about? Alan Davies, Crikey.

Melbourne's best breakfasts - Top 10, Anna Spargo-Ryan, The Guardian

- What's everyone's thoughts on that list?  I haven't visited any of them - plug for the best of my locals, Fine and Dandy Food Stuffs, I'm not a coffee drinker, but the food is top notch and in a superb location - well positioned to take advantage of the increasing development around Albion & Melville Road, get down there before it gets crowded!

Mayor in the market for a revamp of Queen Vic, Shane Green, The Age

- Yes, get on with it Mr Lord Mayor.

Which AFL club should I support? Katharine Viner, The Guardian

- Sorry Pies supporters, but  see my own reply in the comment thread.
