Spacious Aberdeen Street Social is a brilliant brunch spot come the weekend. The menu features an array of classic brunch dishes including eggs royale and florentine, but its the eggs benedict that take the top spot here. Gloriously golden hollandaise sauce and perfectly runny yolks...what more could you want?
This intimate place serves up a whole bunch of brunch faves, as the name would suggest. There's everything from pancakes, and everything in between, such as a mixed grill or croque monsieur. But Brunch Club is known for it's eggs Benedict, with salmon, chorizo, mushrooms and caramelised onions, its a doozy.
Catch is one of Kennedy Town's top brunch spots, offering Melbourne-style eats. It's Big Bad Ben is a badass twist on your average eggs bene. Hashbrowns are used instead of muffins, topped with perfectly poached eggs, bacon, avocado and chorizo and drizzled with creamy hollandaise and chili oil - in case you have a hangover that needs kicking.
With an open front and a leafy outdoor seating area, Oolaa is the ultimate brunch place for families, friends, couples and well, anyone in need of their brunch fix. The poached egg dishes here are served in a number of ways from benedict to smashed and Californian, toppings include smoked salmon, ham, smoked bacon, spinach, avocado and much more. You'll be spoiled for choice.
With amazing coffee and pastries, The Cupping Room is also a solid casual brunch spot. We love their poached eggs with smashed avo, but the eggs benedict with salmon or ham are excellent, too. With a egg porn-worthy yolk, the dish is also served with grapefruit and orange segements, which sounds strange but trust us - it works.
