Brunch in the sun at these outdoor breakfast spots
Cycle to the environmental park for a breakfast of eggs, relishes and greenery all collected on site, and tune up your bike at the free work shed while you’re at it. Brunswick East.
Right on the edge of a meandering bend of the Yarra river you feel a bit like you’re camping – next to a café. This is as al fresco as it gets. South Yarra.
This huge, airy converted garage where 63° poached eggs rule has a tree smack in the middle, which means you can go al fresco even when it’s wet out. Prahran.
Sip your fresh blood orange juice (with 666 vodka) beneath a stripy umbrella outside the Grub’s vintage Airstream caravan. It’s like breakfasting in the US in the 1950s. Fitzroy.
Sit in the garden and watch kitchen hands popping out to pick the herbs that will go on your eggs. Provenance incarnate. Brunswick East.
