Brunch is the closest Melburnians get to having a local cuisine, and the sheer number of breakfast venues available is a testament to this fact. While you’d need a short novel to list all of the excellent brunch spots in Melbourne, a few shining gems stand out amongst the masses.
We pay tribute to the sacred Melbourne tradition of combining breakfast and lunch and list some of the best spots on offer. And just remember, whether you’re after a late brekky or an early lunch, there’s no wrong time for brunch.
Price range: $12 – 25
There’s no shortage of brunch spots in the hipster capital of Melbourne. This multi-award wining venue is a particular standout, however. With its innovative converted warehouse design, famous coffee and delectable breakfast and lunch menus, a lazy Sunday brunch at Industry Beans is a must
The Kettle Black
Location: South Melbourne
Price range: $12 – 25
Head to this stylish little café and restaurant for an example of brunch fine dining. Here you can expect to find lavish creations such as the homemade coconut yoghurt with a sprinkling of nuts, seeds, gluten-free grains, dried strawberries, citrus powder and petals. Because goodness knows, we refuse to have yoghurt if it doesn’t come with a generous portion of petals.
Pillar of Salt
Price range: $8 – 23
It’s unclear whether this Richmond venue was named after the stubborn, white-tiled pillar that can’t be removed for load-bearing reasons. But we can be sure you’ll simply love the interesting and adventurous menu available at Pillar of Salt.
Three Bags Full
Price range: $7 – 23
This sprawling café resides within the old Denton Hat Mills factory and can sit an impressive 130 people across three rooms. Generous seating aside, you can also expect a delectable seasonal menu that changes throughout the year.
Feat of Merit
Price range: $8 - 28
This sustainable-thinking, chic-designed venue is known for using its profits to help support developing communities in Cambodia, Bangladesh, Malawi, Ghana, Rwanda and Australia. So, come for the tasty brunch feed and leave with a warm fuzzy feeling in your tummy that’s due to more than just the food.

Rental The Experience
A rental car’s a rental car. A moving metallic shell capable of travelling at relatively high speeds from one point to another, safely harbouring people and said people’s material goods en route. It’s a means of getting from A to B, a functional requirement, a literal vehicle to something much bigger. An experience.
An experience is something that helps to deﬁne us, that inspires us, that makes us more alive, more human. It’s a breath of mountain fresh air. The feel of a wind on our face. The ﬁltered orange glow of a breaking dawn. The pulse-racing rush of adrenaline, the quivering anticipation of a journey unknown.
An experience is something that validates our sense of who we are. It becomes weaved into the fabric of our existence. It can be brought to mind on a whim to help us escape to a better time. It lives on in us. Forever.
