So share some love for Preston.

I'm about to move there, reluctantly.
I’ve lived there 5 years ago and didn’t like it so I’m hoping things may have changed a bit… any good café’s/ drinking holes/ shops?

Clifton Hill's better, have you considered there?


Cooperative Music  said about 4 years ago:

Cedars, Breadtop, not to mention Preston Market.
I love living in Preston.
The only downside is there's not much in the way of pubs.
The better cafes are more like the top of end of Thornbury than Preston itself, but still easily walkable.

Preston Library is the jewel in the crown of the Darebin group of libraries.


FrankieTeardrop  said about 4 years ago:

Aaaah, Preston - the home of La Panella Bakery (465 High Street). Such tasty vegan pies and pasties.


JudyDickslap  said about 4 years ago:

Breadtop? You cannot be serious. LA FUCKING PANELLA FOR THE MOTHERFUCKING WIN. Cedars is pretty sweet too.


Thrummmer  said about 4 years ago:

YAY for Preston! Preston Proud!! Good cafe on Miller Street (Pearl Oyster), but Co-op is right. Top end of High street Thornbury for cafes (Northern Soul is a cracker), good booze shop just near Louie and Franco's Pizza. Just taken over by some young dudes who have beer tastings on fridays. Masala Craft (Indian) is awesome for take-away, but can be a little pricey. Preston's getting too posh for me. I'm off to Rezzy!

Where is the Public Pool?


filterfeed  said about 4 years ago:

kitty somerset (formerly known as the afterdark) has decent cocktails and an interesting range of boozes in general but is a little expensive and probably more northcote/thornbury border.


Block  said about 4 years ago:

Northcote or Coburg.


FrankieTeardrop  said about 4 years ago:

Preston is no longer De-preston.


Cooperative Music  said about 4 years ago:

yeah, missing La Panella was an oversight, but do they sell the Breadtop Chocolate Horn?

And there's Applecore too. (well, a few yards into Thornbury)


Project-Rabbit  said about 4 years ago:

So Basically anything worthwhile is actually not in Preston but in a neighbouring suburb... I'm going to hate it aren't I?


filterfeed  said about 4 years ago:

you'll get a lot of walking done?


team ham sandwich  said about 4 years ago:

Pho hung is some good asian. Hight st kebabs and high st pizza are good too.


Lilo  said about 4 years ago:

Preston is awesome... don't forget Northland!


Footmaize  said about 4 years ago:

hahah! breadtop???

that was the beginning of the end for ole p town.


philip-box  said about 4 years ago:

Pro-Rab all the best.
Preston has changed but slowly. Northcote/Thornbury have great eateries and vibe. Eventually the overflow will hit Preston but it is still ''one circle'' further from radness and city happenings.


Footmaize  said about 4 years ago:

i miss the depressden.


Footmaize  said about 4 years ago:

keep yer city ''radness''

Preston notorious for shit meat, mutton and rubbish and crap vegetables..avoid.

Ey? I've bought heaps of good meat at the markets!!


outoftheaircrash  said about 3 years ago:

In fact, I know a guy that buys his 'roo that he serves in his cafe at the markets. And it's insanely delicious..


BigBoysSocks  said about 3 years ago:

Only bad experience was veal shanks. Cooked for 4 hours and inedible. Devastated! The gourmet sausages are mad. Fruit and veg could be better, but a step up for woolies on price.

Prest-resentz!!


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

Cheapest spring onions in town.


BigBoysSocks  said about 3 years ago:

A positive comment about preton hellza? You're slipping man.


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

Well everything has some eventual good side to it, even this raging shithole.


Brian O'Dwyer  said about 3 years ago:

The gourmet sausages are mad.

yup.


ijed  said about 3 years ago:

raging shithole

Still struggling with those hemorrhoids I see...


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

Have you caught a Reservoir Buslines bus lately?


BigBoysSocks  said about 3 years ago:

Who catches buses?


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

Invalids, sexually frustrated down syndrome factory workers from Fairfield, girls who can't ride bikes.


woolfat  said about 3 years ago:

And me


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

And Woolfat... though personally I thought she was covered in that description I gave.


woolfat  said about 3 years ago:

I suppose you could say I'm a little bit of each. A sexually frustrated invalid with a broken bike


Hellzapoppin  said about 3 years ago:

You'd be perfect in Preston.


mic  said about 3 years ago:

funny shit.
