Muse has three specialties: food, wine and books. Combining drops of pinot with the delight and wonder of the written word, Muse is housed in the exquisite East Hotel, along Canberra Avenue in the inner south.

Muse serves breakfast every day of the week and lunch Wednesday through Saturday, so you can also pop in to peruse and purchase from the carefully curated selection of new and preloved books. While you read and eat, you can also enjoy a drop from the restaurant's list of all-Australian drinks, thus supporting local industries at the same time.

As a sweetener, the venue also hosts regular events throughout the year, so you can also head down for book launches, long lunches, in-conversations and enjoy Muse's own literacy program — where you can join riveting discussions with Aussie literary talent.
