By 28 August 2014May 26th, 2021No Comments

We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not make it the most delicious? From crepes to eggs with smashed avo we love nothing more than starting our day with a big bunch of brain food to fuel the creativity for the rest of the day. With that in mind our creative team has shared their favourite places to start a day with our suggestions on where to find Melbourne’s best breakfast.


What: Smashed Avo

Where: Proud Mary

Address: 172 Oxford St, Collingwood

Five grain bread toasted and spread with smashed avocado. Throw in charred corn, roasted tomatoes, firey harissa chillis and house ricotta and you have a (reasonably) healthy breakfast full of flavour to kick start your day.


What: Lemon Meringue French Toast

Where: Krimper Café

Address: 20 Guildford Lane, Melbourne

The humble French toast has come a long way in recent years. This may well be the most evolved French toast yet. Thick sliced and deliciously sweet brioche bread, soaked in egg and crusted in almonds. Topped with a deliciously balanced lemon curd and meringue and garnished with basil and strawberries. It’s a bit of a sweet treat to start your day and quiet possibly Melbourne’s best breakfast.


What: Breakfast Burrito

Where: Acland St Cantina

Address: 2 Acland St, St Kilda

The breakfast burrito hasn’t really taken off in Australia but Acland St Cantina is one of its few fine local exponents with a burrito that could possibly be Melbourne’s best breakfast. The monster burrito boasts a tortilla stuffed to the brim with veggies, salsa and sour cream and melted cheese. It may not be the breakfast of champions but it certainly is a champion breakfast.


What: Continues to be Crumpets

Where: Little Big Sugar Salt

Address: 258 Victoria St, Abbotsford

Little Big Sugar Salt have a number of menu items that could in contention for Melbourne’s best breakfast. We’ve gone with the crumpets. Crumpets are a traditional favourite and Little Big Sugar Salt mix it up with a variety of new takes on the old classic. These crumpets are served with your choice of blue cheese, maple syrup or banana and peanut butter.


What: Quark Filled Crepes

Where: Grace Fitzroy

Address: 76 Rose St, Fitzroy

No list of Melbourne’s best breakfast would be complete without some kind of crepe. Grace offer delicate crepes filled with German vanilla cream cheese (quark) and topped with either cream and berry coulis or lemon curd. These crepes are light and delicate and the vanilla quark is a delicious touch.
