Really must recommend Lygon St in Melbourne as many have above. Casa Del Gelato is the best icecream in town, and Brunettis has incredible pastries and sweets and the coffee is fan-freakin-tastic. If you two find yourself with a little more time up your sleeve (unlikely, I know) and can manage to get about 40 minutes out of the city, Healesville is lovely for two reasons: If you feel obligated to do the "Australia has weird animals" thing, the sanctuary has them in native habitat and is very nice, and secondly, the Innocent Bystander/White rabbit winery/brewery is down there, the food is excellent (even the vege options) and, as you've no doubt worked out by now, the local craft breweries down here are awesome too. If you or Anne are wine drinkers, their spread is great too, particularly the pink moscato, so popular they actually have to have it on tap. Transport bar in Fed Square (next to the ACMI recomended above) has generally got a 150 beers on their list, which is handy if you want to try ours, and you'd do well to drop into Little Creatures on Brunswick St or the James Squires brewhouse on Russell st. Finally if you're just looking for the closest thing to a home cooked meal, the waiters club is on meyers lane, just off Burke.. it's a dinky little place that used to be a mob hangout/taxi drivers midnight meal, but the food is lovely, everytime. Try the gnocci if they have it going. Finally, feel free to tweet out if you need any guides, we're all friendly and willing to give you hand if you need it.
