The bar & restaurant below the Olsen is an absolute gem! Parked on the corner of Chapel and Daly Street, Spoonbill is the perfect spot to catch up with friends, or take the lover for date night. The menu changes with the seasons so there’s always something new on offer, but our favourite thing about Spoonbill is the people watching from the street site tables. Grab yourself a glass of wine and watch Chapel Street roll by. Perfection.

If you haven’t heard of the new brunch madam in South Yarra, you either hate having a good time, or you live North Side. In either case, you probably won’t like it here. It’s far to too pink, the vibes are WAY too Palm Springs and you probably hate boozy breakfasts – so $30 bottomless cocktails with brunch won’t interest you at all. We won’t even get into the affordable prices, the ridiculously good Asian influenced plates of deliciousness or the really, really good coffee. You shouldn’t visit House of Lulu White. You’ll have far too good a time.
4 Yarra St, South Yarra
An intimate space off the beaten track, 3C’s Espresso is our fave Wilson Street hideaway. We’d suggest the New York deli style smoked salmon bagel served lightly toasted with decadent cream cheese to cure any Sunday slumps. Bagels made fresh every time. De-lish.
42 Wilson St, South Yarra
Breathing new life into what once was Prahran’s post office, Angus & Bon takes inspiration from the steakhouses of New York with its casual class. Sit by a window at one of the high tables inside or bask in the sunlight at the tables outside and enjoy a menu of beautiful dishes – each plate with a story of its own. Eggs like you’ve never experienced them before, a bacon sandwich with two different types of bacon so you get both juiciness and crispiness in each bite, and quite possibly the best vegan smashed avo you’ve ever had. Paired with a barista made cup of Ona Coffee, and you’ve got your weekend made! Currently, Angus & Bon are only slingin’ eggs and bacon on Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 3pm.
168 Greville St, Prahran
A Prahran staple that sits pride of place at the main Greville Street cross roads. Oscar Cooper’s coffee is always served as a double, the brunch menu filled with delectable bites & espresso martinis are served at breakfast time. As you can expect from Greville’s independant & boutique disposition, Oscar Cooper is a one of a kind.

Get some New York grit at The Cullen’s Gramercy Social. A lively, or as the kids would call ‘bangin’ brunch spot at the corner of Grattan Street & Commercial Road. The brekky menu includes all of your favourites and the brunch cocktails (from 9am Monday to Saturday and from 10am Sunday) is exceptional value. Gramercy Social is a perfect place for a pre-midday meal with your bestie.

A converted garage space serving up strong coffee, delicious brunch and they’re licensed to boot! #boozybreakfast.

Even more than that, pooches are always welcomed to join their latte sippin’, doggy parents company in their covered and heated courtyard seating area.
Rear 154 Greville St, Prahran
Treat yourself to a taste of royalty at High Street’s Middletown Cafe. This darling brunch spot was themed after Dutchess Kate herself, so where else would you take dear bestie for brunch?

Visit Paris without having to leave the country. Enjoy Parisian pastries, delicate tea and coffee options or perhaps a resplendent wine for a French-inspired experience at this gem in the heart of Greville Street. While Chez Mademoiselle is a simpler edition of its older sibling, Chez Olivier – located just next door, it retains the French charm and an ambience that’s entrancing, cosy and feminine.
123A Greville St, Prahran
Settle into the slow, easy going vibe at this local coffee haunt. Dukes roasted coffee is their pour and a mighty fine one it is! If you’re after more than faultless brew, the brunch menu always pleases. Just make sure that you don’t let your meal pass by too quickly… you’re in Windsor after all.
169 Chapel St, Windsor
Mr. Mister will have you saying double and thanking your lucky stars that you stopped by for a bite. Like most stops on the Windsor cafe trail, the coffee is better than good. The food, amazing. But it’s the fresh juices filled with veggies, that don’t taste a thing like veggies, that you’ll love!
159 Chapel St, Windsor
Deep in the Windsor end of Chaps, School of 7 Bells is a favourite for morning city bound travellers. Bells, as it is affectionately known, is named after a legendary Colombian school that teaches kids a dark art: how to pick pocket! The final exam at the school consists of picking from a suit rigged up with seven strategically placed bells, whereby the child must pick the mark clean without ringing a single bell. Whilst these guys do not encourage pick pocketing they do a darn good coffee & very tasty food.
33-35 Chapel Street, Windsor
If you’re the type to rock Air Max 90s, Yellow Bird is the place for you! There’s great music, an affordable menu and an outdoor area that’s great for people watching on a warm morning. Most importantly there’s an all day breakfast menu for you late comers. A medley of the usual suspects, as well as the not-so-usual: billion $$$ strawberry pancakes, Scandanavian and ave amarilla corn fritters being a few to command attention.
1/122 Chapel St, Windsor
One of our all-time Windsor faves. Tusk is a relaxed hangout spot on the corner of Chapel and Green Street ticking all the right brunch boxes. Sit at one of the outdoor tables and catch some rays (if the weather is right) or grab a cosy spot inside. We love their delicious (and very Insta-worthy) blueberry and mascarpone pancake stack and their tusk breakfast (a chorizo number). Tusk really does has the best views of Chapel Street.
133 Chapel St, Windsor
Nutrition bar is the ultimate goodie stop, with the added bonus that everything is hella good for you! Acai bowls, salads, juices & clean treats!
