But whether you're after a simple-yet-tasty granola or some sweet pancakes, there's no better place to immerse yourself in Australia's brunch culture than the country's food capital – Melbourne.
To help ensure your brunch game is strong, the food experts at OpenTable have compiled a selection of the best reservation-taking brunch spots in Melbourne for you to enjoy this weekend.
Supernormal: Opening its doors at 11.00am, Supernormal offers a refreshing take on brunch with the menu. Dishing up delicious dumplings, bao plates and popular Asian dishes with a modern twist, Supernormal has a great vibe and the restaurant fit-out offers both bar and table seating. Keeping true to its name, this venue can offer a really supernormal brunch experience, with a great drink menu to match!
Higher Ground Melbourne: This venue oozes the trendy charm Melbourne is famous for! Higher Ground has an industrial feel with exposed bricks, support beams and high ceilings. More than just a cool venue, the restaurant also boasts an impressive menu with options for hipsters and brunch traditionalists alike. For something delicious, we recommend trying the buffalo yoghurt chia muddled strawberries, mint, dried kiwifruit and pistachios.
Little Collins St Kitchen: With breakfast served from 6.30am and the weekend brunch menu kicking in from 12.00pm, Little Collins Street Kitchen is a great option for early birds wanting to make the most of their weekends! Located on the Paris end of Little Collins Street, this restaurant dishes up local and seasonal dishes with a French twist. Simple and comfy décor complete the dining experience.
Fathers Office: Opening at 11.00am on the weekends, this unconventional brunch spot will transport you back to the 1920s prohibition era with a themed Speakeasy Bar and Restaurant. The venue puts on a show with dark wooden floor board and exposed lighting. We recommend Fathers Office to those wanting to kick-start their weekend with a burger and some world famous wings. With $12.00 cocktails flowing all day on Sunday, it would be rude not to wash your meal down with a delicious concoction like the Alfalfa Switzer – it's 5.00pm somewhere in the world right?!
The Hotel Windsor: With a selection of freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and champagne by the glass, this restaurant has something for every type of bruncher. Whether you're opting for the breakfast trifle, eggs benedict or house fruit and spice waffle, you know you're in for a treat with the divine menu being crafted by Executive Chef Joel Alderson. Our pick is the proper eggs and bacon with maple gazed bacon, fried duck egg and pickled green chilli on Pyengana cheddar toast.
