7 Best Brunch Spots in Melbourne

Your weekend is precious, and if there’s one reason to get out of bed in the morning, it’s brunch. Melbourne, with its laidback vibe and strong café culture is pretty much built for brunch. Your Saturday and Saturday mornings are made better with some sort of runny egg, bottomless drink, and good company to reminisce the previous night with. Here are the 7 best brunch spots in Melbourne for you to try:

1. The Grain Store

If sustainability is your priority, you’ll be happy to know that Grain Store prides itself for its organic and additive-free dishes. The café is known for its seasonal menu, featuring ingredients like bircher muesli and goji berries. They have a great selection of pancakes, including pancakes with caramelized bananas and coconut ricotta. Don’t miss their savoury offerings like smoked salmon with poached egg and chorizo omelette. And to top it all, baked-to-order chocolate chip cookies and milk for dessert!

Address: 517 Flinders Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

2. Manchester Press

You will notice right away that most people are here for one reason: the sea of bagels. Options include bacon, mascarpone, popcorn, and even Korean chicken. If you’re looking for an all-time Aussie favourite, look no further than the Avo Smash: a towering pile of avocado and feta.

Address: 8 Rankins Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia

3. Monk Bodhi Dharma

With a name like that, you would be correct to assume that this place serves an animal-friendly menu. Despite the lack of meat and dairy, there’s a lot of flavours to be found here, from the açaí bowls to sweetcorn ricotta hotcakes. Everyone will enjoy their time here, even if they’re not vegetarians or vegans.

Address: Rear, 202 Carlisle St, Balaclava VIC 3183, Australia

4. Industry Beans

Industry Beans impresses on two aspects: style and coffee. Aside from its own roastery and coffee labs, expect a good spread of food which includes all-time favourite Avo Smash and cinnamon brioche. We love that the bread and butter are made in-house.

Address: 3/62 Rose St, Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia

5. Archie’s All Day

Aside from being an all-day diner, Archie’s All Day is a great place for brunch. While theclassic Avo Smash is a must, you can also try other tasty offerings like za’atar eggs and huevos sucio. This is also a great place for day-drinking, so don’t miss out on their frozen rosé.

Address: 189 Gertrude St, Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia

6. The Kettle Black

This café housed in a chic terrace house is a popular hangout spot in South Melbourne. Despite the busy atmosphere, you can always count on the Australian hospitality here. Menu is creative, from coconut chia pudding to chilli scrambled eggs.

Address: 50 Albert Rd, South Melbourne VIC 3205, Australia

7. Two Birds One Stone

If you’re in South Yarra, head to this sophisticated yet unpretentious space. They cater to everyone from coffee connoisseurs who only drink single origin to millenials and their dainty skinny lattes. The food menu also reflects this philosophy, with down-to-earth items like bircher muesli and omelette but also crumpets and crispy pork belly.

Address: 12 Claremont St, South Yarra VIC 3141, Australia
