MELBOURNE | Smith + Singleton is your standard neighbourhood cafe, but only if that cafe happened to have gourmet food and craft beer. Maybe not so standard after all. We were curious to find out more when we attended the preview.

Smith + Singleton is a tram ride from the city on the 55 or 59, all the way up to the Royal Children’s Hospital and to an art space called the Lariwell Centre, named after painter David Lariwell. The place is modern and green (in a plant sort of way), and offers a nice balance between casual dining and a more sophisticated experience.

As we mentioned in the earlier, for a restaurant aiming to be a kind of neighbourhood cafe, its food selection and style is well beyond the traditional fare. The vision of chefs and restaurateurs Paul Dunlop (GG’s, St Katherine’s, Bistro Thierry) and Lucas Sansome (Maha, St Katherine’s), Smith + Singleton is anything but traditional, and we don’t think this is a bad thing. Like many of the new breed of Melbourne bars and restaurants, as well as serving a bar crowd at the end of the night, it also opens for breakfast and lunch, but perhaps with less of a focus on alcohol at these hours.

We visited during their launch party, so we can’t confirm what you see here will be quite what you will get when you visit, but based on reports we’ve heard, we’re confident it will be a similar style. There’s also dessert, obviously, the likes of which are simple enough for most, and yet classy enough to feel special about it.

There is a lot to like about Smith + Singleton. While the hospital it shares its location with may not be a place you would choose to visit, this restaurant and bar is modern and interesting and certainly worth your time.
