Tall Timber


Juliet Sulejmani | October, 21 2015

So…something that I realised. If you stop doing the things that you love, you will lose yourself and your inspiration.

One of my favourite things to do is go to new places and especially to new cafes. And since becoming a freelancer about two months ago, I haven’t been doing as much as I used to. Which explains why I haven’t been feeling like myself lately.

I had a Juliet Day today and went to the art store, I went to the gym, I went for a walk and I checked out a cafe I hadn’t been to yet, but had seen people IG repeatedly. That cafe is Tall Timber.

Tall Timber is at 60 Commercial Road in Prahran. I must say, I was super impressed when I got my coffee. In all the time I have been drinking coffee and visiting cafe after cafe, I have never been presented with a swan in my cup. Boy was I impressed. So clever.

I ordered the: Wild Cacao, Gogi + Organic Oat Granola, with seasonal fruit (strawberries, blueberries and fig,i don’t think figs are actually in season?), honey vanilla yoghurt. Loved it. I eat granola at almost every cafe that I go and this is in my faves list.

It was actually the perfect day to go in there because it was raining and I sat in the front window and read my book, it was so cozy. I’m still reading Open Secrets by Alice Monro. Oh and the atmosphere is great and the staff are really nice and cool. I’d totally go back and I’d really like to sit at the communal table next time.

Tip: Even if you don’t have to go to the bathroom at cafes always go to the bathroom. Cafe’s have the best bathrooms. Trust me. That’s where I took the selfie!

doughnuts and nail art

As well as looking out for cool cafes and burger places in Melbourne, I am also looking for yummy doughnuts. I’ll try and make a list one of these days of all the places I’ve found and post it up here.

I went to Walker’s Doughnuts the other day, I don’t mind them, and they are convenient as they are opposite Flinders station on the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth street.

These last few days I have been homebound with a cold which is not very exciting. So to keep busy I gave myself  a CommePlay manicure, and my sister a kitty cat manicure. And because it is so fun I have decided to be a nail artist. No not really, but wouldn’t that be such a great job? I was going to apply to TrophyWifeNail Art but then realised I am too busy trying to be a fashion designer and so have no time to also pursue a career as a nail artist. insert sad face here. So in the mean time I will just decorate the nails of anyone that will let me.

Today I had the day off and had the best time.

I caught up with my sweet friend Kate (who you can see in the first picture). We went to Top Paddock for breakfast. Kate had the hotcakes, which are my favourite. And I had the porridge ( in the second picture). I didn’t have hotcakes today because I am trying to eat healthier. Kate and I went into Space furniture store ( I go in there every time I go to Top Paddock) and probably spent an hour sitting in some new, fancy, expensive arm chairs and had very inspiring conversations.

I wish I can be rich enough to be able to shop in that store one day.

After that we went for a bit of a walk, the sun was out today which made it extra lovely.

Want to know what my favourite day of the year is?


It is the day this book comes out. The Age Good Cafe Guide.  This is the third year that I have bought it, and I can say without a doubt that it has improved my life. Seriously.


Basically what I do is, I pick one highlighter colour, and I turn to the back (there is an alphabetical listing of all the cafes reviewed in the book) and I highlight all the cafes that I have been to. Then because I’m slightly kooky, I count how many cafes there are  (this new one has 311) and then I count how many I have been to ( I have been to 80 in this book) and then I start my mission. And then I get a new highlighter colour and highlight all the new ones I go to.


My mission is to drink all the coffee in Melbourne. No, not really. But actually each year I try and go to all the cafes listed in the guide. It’s actually really fun, and it’s cool because Matt Holden and his team do a great job and pick really good cafes.


So this new guide came out this week and I bought it at Dymocks for $9.95. If you can wait ( I couldn’t), you can buy it with The Age on Sunday for $5.00.

Andrews Hamburgers

I went to Andrews Hamburgers last week with my sister. Looking at the photos is making me so hungry for a burger right now. I didn’t have free time this week to go out and try a new place. I think that means I need to have at least two burgers next week.

Andrews Hamburgers gets the thumbs up from me and my sister, who actually took her fiance there a couple days later because she loved it so much.

I can’t remember what mine was called, I think it was just called plain. It was just the basic one $7.50 and I added cheese for $1.00. I really enjoyed it, it wasn’t a juicy, saucy burger and the burger to bun ration was spot on. It was different to the other burgers I have had so far because it had cabbage and lettuce.

As I was eating, I overheard some German tourists saying it was the best burger they have ever had. So yeah, I don’t know if I can say that, but I would totally go back.

You might find it a little intimidating when you walk in because I did, there is some serious burger making going on in there, noone really said hi when I walked in and it was a little bit tricky to see the menu. I think I felt this way because in my mind I was expecting the same thing as MR Burger and Huxtaburber, where everything is clear and shiny and fancy. So if you do feel intimidated like me, just relax, don’t let that stop you, once the staff take your order you’ll realise they’re actually nice, just really busy.
