Here at Milk Bottle Projects, we take pride in helping our food and beverage clients become some of the hottest spots for breakfast, lunch and dinners.

Without our connections with recognised publications and journalists, so many Melbourne bars, restaurants and cafes would go completely under the radar. 

Food bloggers continue to influence the dining landscape. According to Stella Rising, 84% make purchases only after they have read a review on a blog (D’Adamo, 2017). This highlights the importance that blogs hold in today’s digital age, as they continuously grow to become a trustworthy source of information. 

So, when deciding where to eat for your next night out, it is no wonder that so many of us turn to food bloggers for their go-to tips and reviews of the latest venues. 

In this post, I have gathered the top 10 food bloggers in Melbourne that will most definitely leave a good mark on your business, and influence the thousands to come visit your venue.
