As coffee fiends, there's nothing we love more than a good brunch to match. Here are our top places to head to this weekend for a good ol' Melbourne brunch...
If you're in Southbank, stroll over to Saporito
Saporito in Southbank serves up classic aussie brunch staples and smoothies on Kavanagh Street. This spot is minutes away from the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) which is a perfect way to spend a few hours on a Saturday morning if time allows.
If you're in Melbourne's inner north, head to Calle Bakery
Calle Bakery in Carlton produces some of the finest pastries we've ever seen. Baked fresh in the morning, you can indulge in classic croissants and french pastries or branch out further afield and try their yuzu croissants and specials. We LOVE their lemon meringue croissant.
If you're in South Yarra/Prahran head to Entrecote
Ok ok we said classic aussie brunch, and this one is definitely more french-bistro-cafe-breakfast... but it's a super spot to spend some time at on the weekend. Entrecote on Chapel Street offers pastries, baguettes and burgers as quick bites in their dreamy setting. Find out their full offering by heading to their online menu, appropriately named Le Petit Marché.
If you're Southside, by the beach, head to Miss Alex & Co in Elwood
Miss Alex & Co in Elwood is a great spot if you're bayside. Offering healthy acai bowls, smoothies and classics (like banana bread and burgers) you can be sure to have a great start to the day with great vibes to match. This spot is located minutes away from the Bay Trail so you can polish off a good meal with a nice coastal walk back to the city.
If you're in St Kilda East, head to Timeless
You'll know you're in Timeless by the large (appropriate) clock on the wall of this Wellington Street venue, located in St Kilda East. Timeless has a huge selection of sandwiches, pastries and pies as well as more hearty egg classics. Just make sure you catch them Monday-Saturday as Timeless are closed on Sundays.
If you're in Richmond, head over to Hawthorn to hit up Zoobibi
Zoobibi transports us to the Mediterranean with their light airy interiors and internationally inspired menu. Being part shop, part cafe this place has been guilty of stealing our mornings with their decadent meals and dreamy furniture. Head here for hearty breakfast bowls, breakfast boards and burgers inspired by the owners' heritage and travels.
If you're in Melbourne CBD in the week, head to Workers Food Room
So we know we said weekends, but we couldn't miss this one out. Despite Workers Food Room being closed on weekends, it's an unmissable spot for a breakfast or lunch in the week. Being so centrally located too, it's an easy spot to try if you have a spare hour mid week. Opening from 6:30 am in the week, you can head there before the working day ahead and gawp over there traditional sandwiches, their extensive salad menu and the turkish flatbread selection.
