Back to blogging and I’m playing catch up with Bicycle Thieves. A newbie on the brunch scene in Northcote not that the traffic or the atmosphere inside shows it - it’s absolutely buzzing! Let’s see if the food holds up too!
I always appreciate a good brunch invitation but even more so when the brunch spot really delivers and I get the pleasure of writing up a review that writes itself. Enter Neighbour is one of those spots that has done that….almost perfect in every way!
Throwback to when I first started brunching 5 years ago, Sir Charles was one of my introductions to the art of brunch. Fast forward to today and I had the pleasure to be invited back to experience their new summer Asian-inspired menu!
Invited out to Northcote once again for brunch. The Espresso Room is nestled in the middle of brunch central so the bar was set quite high as were my expectations. Read on to see how it faired compared to the rest!
A brunch place with a churro menu?! A must go for me and in addition a beautiful mural of the equally beautifully Hugh Jackman. Jackman Eatery brings you in with its novel name and concept but has you leaving with a very full stomach and a satisfied sweet tooth.
Something a bit different to end the year, I was invited to Bowls Baby to try out their in-house smoothie and salad bowls. Beautifully fitted out much like its sister cafes (Pinkie, St.Rose, No.19) it is a new take on a quick brunch and a great spot to start your health kick!
As summer comes around, here comes all the delicious summer menus coming out of hibernation! First off the post is No.19 who is once again showing the brunch scene how it’s done with an amazing line up of dishes!
I was lucky enough to be invited to the newly revamped Belleville! Don’t worry, the rotisserie chicken is still there but added to the menu are a few new higher class items that I am beyond excited to try.
There’s nothing I love more than pizza so I definitely couldn’t say no to an invite to A25! Having been there before I knew it was perfect for the usual carnivore such as myself but with the release of a new vegan menu I knew I had to challenge myself to see if vegan pizza was worth a shot!
On the hunt for a quieter spot for brunch? Look no further than The Faculty, off the main brunch trail but worth the detour for the chill vibes and low key classics that will get your brunch needs satisfied!
A power player in the Melbourne’s gelato scene, Piccolina Gelateria has gone from strength to strength with two current stores and have now embarked on their next big adventure, St Kilda! Summer breeze and a fair crowd around…I was ready to try anything and everything I could get my hands on as a self-confessed gelato addict!
Formerly the Melbourne outpost of Entrecote, Garçon has added its own stylish and modern take on French cuisine to the Paris end of Collins Street. All I need to say - the unlimited fries have remained!
If you seek to venture a bit deeper into Northcote you’ll find Field Black, a little cafe with an abundance of charm. With some pretty friendly staff and a kitsch interior I wasn’t sure what to expect!
Honestly, what’s there not to love about Riddik? Grungy and hip with an entire menu dedicated to Eggs Benedict…as I said, difficult to fault right?! There is so much more to this brunch spot in the middle of nowhere though so read on.
Project Forty Nine is a chic industrial paradise that is off the beaten path of Smith Street. Coming highly recommended by colleagues, I was keen to see what the fuss was about and I was not disappointed at all. Fine dining at its very best!
Sometimes you find the best when you least expect it - Pizza E Birra definitely sits in that category. I was just looking for a quick dinner before catching a gig when I found this authentic little spot with probably the best Italian I've had in Melbourne!
Linger Patisserie Cafe - A long standing cafe in the brunch heartland of Camberwell. It is so strange that this hasn't been on my radar before but the GORGEOUS pastries and cakes meant I had to get here fast!
