Today I am SO excited to have Liz Lyons on my blog – author of www.breakfastin.com.au and creator of the @breakfastinperth, @breakfastinmelbourne and @breakfastinsydney Instagram pages, with over 350,000 followers. After featuring my post Breakfast In Madrid on her website, she is now sharing her top FOUR brekkie spots in Melbourne. Introducing Liz…
PEDRO ESPRESSO – ST KILDA ROAD
This hidden gem is a little bit hard to find (located in the base of an office building on St Kilda Road) but it is worth the exploration. They’ve just refreshed the menu and have a very tasty Benedict with pulled pork, a delicious ramen, and one of the best smashed avos going around.
Their coffees are made on the Slayer Espresso Steam Machine (which is apparently the best in the biz) so definitely grab a latte while you’re there.
DISTRICT NORTH – MOONEE PONDS
District North is serving up one of the most colourful menus in Melbourne. We’re talking amazing brekkie bowls, epic pancake specials, ridiculously decadent French toast and crazy smoothies and juices.
The space is large, so you shouldn’t have to wait too long if they’re busy. (Which is always a win – #somanycafestotrysolittletime)
SAINT JAMES CAFÉ – MALVERN
This English-inspired café’s menu provides a nod to the Motherland. They’ve got black pudding, a fish finger butty (fish finger sandwich) and the must try- their delicious pikelets.
Go on a sunny day and hang out in their gorgeous courtyard (which is also pup-friendly!).
HOLLA – RICHMOND
Okay first thing’s first, these guys do a MAC AND CHEESE EGGS BENE. Yup, not a drill.
The interior is as cool as their menu, lots of plants and a soothing tropical vibe. Happy hour’s everyday from 2pm and means that you can knock back one of their yummy cocktails for only $9.
