5 Hot Melbourne Brunch Spots in 2022
Brunch is a mainstay of Melbourne culture. Here are 5 hot Melbourne brunch spots in 2022.
Industry Beans - Chadstone
Brunch with an element of sophistication, the new Industry Beans location in Chadstone is an eye opener. Cold brews and Bubble Coffees and affogatos? Porcini and Baramundi mains? Industry Beans is not just for coffee lovers but offers a rich brunch experience that exceeds expectation.
Vibrant dishes and light and bright setting.
Red Pepper - Bourke St Melbourne CBD
How about a relaxed Indian brunch on a Sunday? Red Pepper commences their Sunday bruncin January (see website for details), and this is something special in Melbourne. Menu includes authentic Punjabi and other North Indian cuisine specials. A La Carte and set menu is also available. A minimum spend of $45 is a requirement. We think this is new in Melbourne - bringing Indian dishes to the Melbourne brunch scene. Owner Chef Jagjeet Kaur is an icon of Melbourne and was recently recognised with the Lord Mayor's Commendation, with Red Pepper building up a wonderful following of loyal customers over the years, including corporates and city workers.
Red Pepper has been delighting Melbourne diners since 2006 with its authentic and traditional Indian dishes, with Jagjeet Kaur's expert use of Indian spices. Serving lunch and dinner in the Melbourne CBD, at the leafy end of town near Parliament, Red Pepper is now branching out in offering Sunday brunches.
Red Pepper features an impressive selection of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
Vegetarian or non-vegetarian, Red Pepper has it covered. While some restaurants are strong in either vegetarian or non-vegetarian, Red Pepper features signture dishes in both.
Enjoy brunch with a spice kick? Red Pepper also features a warm and welcoming atmosphere at a delightful end of town, with plenty of parking and tram stop nearby.
Lankan Tucker - Brunswick West
Lankan Tucker brings the best of Sri Lanka to the brunch scene, including its famous Hip Hopper brunch dish. Coffee quality at this cafe on Albion Rd is strong, but it is best known for its fabulous Sri Lankan dining offerings.
Hip Hopper features bowl-shaped savory turmeric crepe with egg (an egg hopper), chicken curry (choose your curry), stringhoppers, sambol trio and lux coconut milk gravy. A rewarding "brunch with a kick" offering in Melbourne.
Lankan Tucker also provides a Lankan at home experience online.
Neruda's is a South American cafe run by a musician owner that has built up a community vibe and following, and is a favorite Melbourne brunch destination.
Fresh house-made chorizo with the scrambled eggs.
Arguably the best empanada's in Melbourne, sure to please. Coffee here is also excellent. Neruda's is a Brunswick institution that recently moved further down Albion St but is still in the same local area.
Black Star Pastry
Black Star Pastry famous in Sydney, has spread it's fame to Melbourne, and now has opened up in Chadstone with a highly impressive modern kiosk design, merch, and even more impressive cakes such as the Strawberry Watermelon Cake.
Coffee is by iconic St Ali.
