Hawthorn's leafy, sleepy neighbour has long been a sought-after postcode for Melbourne's well-to-do set; and though Kew retains its old-money roots, an influx of great cafés like Ora and Mastic has seen it become a popular brunch destination for the young and trendy too. It's also home to the Skinny Dog Hotel, purveyors of one of the finest parmas in Melbourne.
