One hundred Melbourne cafes and 5 years of a food Instagram later, I've finally curated a long overdue list of my personal favourite Melbourne brunch cafes! After riding the insurmountable wave of brunch cafes that have been taking over Melbourne (and even globally) over the past few years, safe to say it definitely takes quite … Continue reading Melbourne’s Best Cafes

Arcadia Fitzroy

At the risk of sounding like a basic Melbourne millennial, I am proud to admit that it had been exactly 9 months since my last brunch - until we had the post-lockdown luxury of visiting Arcadia Cafe in Fitzroy, and am I glad that this was the cafe we chose. With the turmoils of 2020 … Continue reading Arcadia Fitzroy

Otto Melbourne

Otto Melbourne is a lively and spacious brunch café, bustling with customers on a Sunday afternoon in the trendy hub of Richmond. The menu was filled with a beautiful variety of interesting combinations of self-titled "fine food" that sets itself apart from traditional Melbourne brunch institutions. Unfortunately, I think I went in with expectations too … Continue reading Otto Melbourne

Sugar Buns Cafe Bakery

"Social media ready and pimped to perfection." The exact words that Sugar Buns uses to describe their MEGASHAKES... and pretty much sums up what this cafe is all about. A 2 hour trek for me from the city to Hampton Park, Sugar Buns made it well worth it and I could see why the cafe … Continue reading Sugar Buns Cafe Bakery

The Counter

If a cosy, neighbourhood cafe had a definition, it would be The Counter in Hawthorn. Directly across the road from Auburn Station, The Counter is a lovely quick stop for a light bit of breakfast and coffee, or a delicious brekkie catch up in their outdoor courtyard in the back with plenty of greenery dotted … Continue reading The Counter

Definitely an inner city brunch cafe worth checking out! The good … Continue reading Barlog Espresso

Saint James Malvern

Saint James Malvern is on a quiet section of Malvern Road, and a small interior that is always quite popular with locals, from those stopping by a coffee before work, or those popping in after an early morning jog! They recently launched a new menu, with new features like the old charcoal activated hotcakes have … Continue reading Saint James Malvern

The Espresso Room

Another highlight of my Melbourne Northside brunches of 2019 comes from The Espresso Room in Northcote! Part of the suite of cafes from No.19, Pinkie and St Rose, just to name a few - The Espresso has a really rustic and old-school trendy interior that has persisted through time, complete with a deli section at … Continue reading The Espresso Room
