Have you ever wanted to disappear? Just bodyswerve everyone and everything you know and slip away to a little oasis where no one will find you? Somewhere where you can lounge around under the lazy sway of a tree, drinking champagne and cherrypicking your way through a lush platter of haloumi and olives. Somewhere where you can snuggle up by an open fire with a book and some chunky chips. Somewhere inconspicuous. Unassuming. Perfect for your needs.

Then I’ll meet you at Famous Blue Raincoat.

Squished into a short clutch of shops in the cramped, low-lying suburban swathe of Spotswood, this adorable café is like a mirage of unexpected charm with its lazy days backyard, cosy dining room and hearty smattering of kitsch. The food is quality lunchy reliables – pizzas, toasted sandwiches and cracking anti pasto platters – and the Jasper’s coffee is solid. FBR is perfect for a breezy breakfast, a casual lunch (with bargainous lunch specials), or a let-the-music-play, loud and loungey, wine-soaked evening.

The term ‘hidden gem’ can be a raging cliché but FBR really is the dictionary definition of it.
