In a city fuelled by café breakfasts, one way to keep the dream alive a little longer is to go all out baller and settle in for a bottomless brunch. Maybe you'll opt for Mimosas as your beverage of choice or stay true to a classic Bloody Mary (or three). And if Champagne glasses are being topped up at your every whim, then why the hell not have another? 

But there's a lot more to a bottomless brunch than just flowing drinks: our top picks also have excellent food – be it Middle Eastern-inflected, seafood-focussed or a version of the classic mod-Aus – and the kind of atmosphere that lends itself to lazy morning briefings about the night before or doubles as an opportunity to kick the party off all over again. Whichever your heart desires. 

Prefer lunch? Try these ace locations for a long lunch in Sydney. Or if you're a serious early riser, here are 90 things to do before 9am.
