Best brunch in Melbourne

A Melbourne brunch line on Sunday is fierce. Anyone who has tried to get their weekend fix from single-origin coffee and sustainably-sourced eggs will know. These are the places where we would happily queue up for this weekend.

Monk Bodhi Dharma

This Balaclava brunch spot has an industrial-warehouse feel. It was once a bakery but now offers excellent coffee and a vegan menu. They also offer dinner on Friday nights.

Industry Beans

This local favourite is located at the corner of Fitzroy’s Rose Street. It has been awarded for its outstanding design and exceptional coffee. Each day, it features a new line-up of origins. CAFE Located at the corner of Fitzroy’s Rose Street and Fitzroy’s Street, Trevor Simmons and Steve Simmons transformed an old warehouse into an innovative space with a café, a roastery, an upstairs cupping lab, and expert coffee training. Industry Beans offers top-quality products and interesting flavours worldwide, including the Sumatran hills and the Panama plantations. There is a daily menu with nine origins. All bread, butter, and chocolate are made on-site, juices are bottled, and all ingredients are locally sourced for the delicious breakfast and lunch menus.

Axil Coffee Roasters

Axil Coffee Roasters was founded by Dave Makin, a three-time Australian barista champion, and Zoe Makin, his partner. It started in Hawthorn but has since expanded to include Exhibition Street and Flinders Lane. Breakfast options include classics such as bircher muesli or smashed avocado and feta. There are also more adventurous offerings like beetroot-cured ocean trout and panko-crumbed eggs, and taleggio croquettes with shredded ham hock.

Archie’s All Day

Archie’s doesn’t lie when it says that it is an all-day restaurant. Burger for brunch? They can. You can make vanilla-bean oatmeal afternoon tea. You bet. You might also be interested in vegan mapo tofu, hue Vos de sucio and zaatar egg. They can also do that. You thought Fitzroy couldn’t handle another cafe.

The Grain Store

This Flinders Lane café focuses on seasonal fare using ingredients like quinoa and goji berries. Enjoy the farmhouse-chic look, the sweet selection of breakfast options, and marvel at the sustainability.

The Kettle Black

The Kettle Black is a brunch menu that offers more than the typical brunch fare. For example, the chilli scrambled egg with Flinders Island wallaby, Feta, and seasonal leaves. Coconut yoghurt is made in house and topped with citrus powder, dried strawberries, petals, seeds, nuts, citrus powder, citrus powder, dried strawberries, and nuts. Fine dining before lunch? It’s hard not to believe.
