With its eclectic knick-knack shops, vintage homewares stores and old school Italian coffee shops, Brunswick East is a real mixed bag. Only six kilometres north of the city, Brunswick East is a combination of commercial and residential properties that focus on and around Lygon Street and Nicholson Street.

George Calombaris’ Hellenic Republic draws diners to the area like bees to honey. Offering fresh, clean, simple Greek fare, this modern tavern is great for group dining with all dishes designed to be shared. Over on Nicholson Street, restaurateurs Matt Wilkinson and Ben Foster’s café Pope Joan, and neighbouring bar, The Bishop of Ostia, have a strong local following. The former offers up a pretty incredible brekkie and lunch menu, and the latter, beverages and bar food to carry on the party.

On warm evenings, the Gelobar on Lygon Street is packed with people buying their delicious house-made gelato and sweets, and neighbouring Thaila Thai is pretty much busy all year round. Keep an eye out for the Taco Truck and Beatbox Kitchen food vans too; both hipster-hot spots frequently pick Lygon St, East Brunswick to set up shop for the night. For a great burger and beer selection, head to the B.EAST on Lygon Street where their Tuesday night Trivia is a hit!

East Brunswick is very well serviced by public transport, with three different tramlines running along Lygon and Nicholson Streets into the city. There are also several bus lines running east-west through the suburb. The suburb is home to two government primary schools, Brunswick East Primary School and Brunswick South Primary School, and Our Lady Help of Christians, a Catholic primary school.

Local recommendations:

Hellenic Republic, 434 Lygon Street. Clean, modern Greek fare.
Thaila Thai 82 Lygon Street. Big serves, great value Thai.
Gelobar, 74 Lygon Street. On a hot summer’s night, this is the place to be.
Pope Joan, 77-79 Nicholson St. Solid brekkie choice, great venue.
The B.EAST, 80 Lygon Street. Cool spot to meet friends.
