Le Clec, Hawthorn 3122
We're over halfway through the year so I feel like it's safe to put this out there up front - Le Clec is 100% in the running for my favourite brunch spot this year! Beautiful, exemplary service and delicious food, read on if you want to hear about the amazing dishes on offer here.
The Bakers Wife, Camberwell 3124
It's raining, it's pouring - but nothing will ever stop me from heading to brunch. The Bakers Wife is so warm and welcoming so no matter the weather you'll enjoy the trip to this Tardis-like cafe (it's bigger on the inside!). Warm yourself up and read on to see what to fill your belly with here!
Sardi, Hawthorn 3122
Located in an odd part of Hawthorn with not much competition around I wasn't too sure what to expect apart from the famous Oreo Waffles. Awkwardly quiet once inside and with not much going on, I was unsure why this was such a well known cafe. Lets see if the food can fill in the questionable gaps.
Wind Chimes Cafe, Doncaster East 3109
Not even a broken foot can keep me away from brunch...but it can keep me a little closer to home. This week's brunch is at a hidden gem in Melbourne's East that boasts a compilation of your average brunch dishes with a twist. They have just released their new menu as well so lets check it out!
Down the Rabbit Hole, Templestowe 3106
Who knew brunch could open up so close to home? Nestled in a quiet corner of Melbourne's East this is yet another Alice in Wonderland themed cafe. Extremely busy but plenty of space to cater to masses, Down the Rabbit Hole delivers on quality Japanese fusion with the usual brunch favourites. Time to tuck in and see if the locals do it better than the city slickers.
The Hatter and the Hare, Bayswater 3153
There's always time for brunch and on this edition we headed out to Bayswater to check out The Hatter and the Hare, a much hyped Alice in Wonderland themed cafe out in the 'burbs. With a whimsical and magical menu...did it meet the high expectations it sets online?
Winery Tour in the Yarra Valley
A bit of a different format for this review but thought it was a worthwhile one for the keen foodie roadtrippers. Headed off to the Yarra Valley via Airtasker to do some wine tasting and enjoy some along the way. Here is a quick look at some of the places we stopped by there :)
