The silly season is upon us, and we've seen our fair share of silliness when it comes to celebratory beverages, and no mistake. For those near Military Road-Spit Road however, there are greasy brekkies and carby Italian eats to take the edge off the morning's regret. Save your life at one of these eateries.

Not ready to call it quits? Keep the party going here.

So long as you didn't overdo it on pizza the night before, Fratelli's will sort out your hangover with a cheesy, carb-loading wood-fired pizza. Or grab a calzone and eat twice the pizza in half the time. The pizzeria is open from noon Saturday and Sunday and offer a ten per cent discount on takeaway orders - so get your pizza and crawl back home to recuperate.

Kebabs are of course a must after a big night out - so what do vegetarians and vegan do? Opt for falafel of course! Falafel Zaman prides itself on staying true to the original Beirut falafel that can be properly enjoyed in trios, wrapped in Lebanese bread with tahini sauce, pickles and a salad of parsley, mint and tomato. Load up on the hummus, garlic dip, baba ganoush and labneh, all freshly made on-site. Unfortunately they're only open until 9pm so any restorative falafel sessions will have to be conducted in the harsh light of day.

There's nothing like a full English breakfast to soak up the night before. At Maisy's, brekky is 24/7 (go for the mega breakfast with eggs, bacon, tomato, sausage, hash browns, mushroom, baked beans, tomato and toast) and though the space is small, it's always pumping. Like at any good 24/7 restaurant, comfort food is the theme at Maisy’s, making it easy to satisfy your 3am pasta cravings or grab something soothingly greasy after a night out - or on the way home.

It’s easy to forget you’re on Military Road while sitting in La Baguette. Hidden away at the rear of Theo's Arcade the café is far removed from the hubbub of the street - meaning you can nurse your headache in peace with a hot chicken schnitzel baguette and a strong coffee.

Every neighbourhood needs a good, no-frills pizza shop. Somewhere that you can get eight slices of tomato and cheese perfection with fresh, simple toppings. If you’re in Spit Junction you can get your dose of pizza heaven from Sopranos. The Sopranos team handmake their own pizza dough and passata sauce, and use a family recipe for their bolognese pasta. Soprano’s take on garlic bread is well worth trying as well: they load a pizza base with mozzarella, garlic and oregano then roll it up, cook it until golden and slice it to serve.

If you're feeling a little bit rough from the night before Don Adan will at least fix you up enough to function. The dinky café is off the main Spit Road strip without being too far for your leaden legs to reach. Nestle yourself into the plush bench seating and order their take on a big breakfast: refried black beans, guacamole, fried eggs, jalapeños and tomato sauce. Add a silky smooth Don Adan single origin coffee and you'll feel like a new person.
