Back to the homeland with this invite… PHO! Brand new Pho in Camberwell of all places. Before you make your assumptions on this place because it’s not in your standard Footscray, Springvale or Richmond…this place is as traditional as you get on its food without flying to Vietnam itself.
Can I just start this by saying this place is STUNNING?! High ceilings and cool vibes for days I could have sat here and chilled for days. Brunch awaited though and boy did it not disappoint…read on to find out more about the Fifth Chapter experience!
I recently moved into a new area and it’s time to try out the local brunch spots! First up is Cote Terra - a Mediterranean brunch spot right near Oakleigh Station with great coffee and a smashing menu to boot.
Another week, another brunch and in this case - another visit to Collingwood. In the heart of what is becoming the new brunch central for Melbourne. This time it’s Melvin, where pink is the colour of the game and sings of Summer.
You’ve definitely tried their excellent coffee but have you tried their food? St Ali’s has made a name for itself in Melbourne for its high quality beans but after visiting their cafe in South Melbourne I’ll be coming back for more than just the coffee!
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!
