Alternative breakfasts

Break free from the breakfast clichés and try something a little off-piste

Cibi

Centre your ki with a plate of grilled salmon and nata (fermented soy beans). Cibi offers Japanese breakfast plates and sells beautiful homewares too. Collingwood.

Golden Dragon Palace

When chilli, tea and sweet mango pancakes are all that stand between you and annihilation, ditch the eggs for a yum cha kickstart. Lower Templestowe.

Monk Bodhi Dharma

It’s not that far out, but the organic and vegan breakfasts at the Monk offer a much needed break from bacon city. Balaclava.

Middle Fish

Put some chilli on your omelette and order the banana roti with potent Bangkok-style coffee from Thai expat Siriporn Liamthong. Carlton.

Hungry Birds

This Mexican café has amazing chicken-filled crepes baked in chilli sauce and sour cream, is connected to an art gallery, and has the fastest Wi-Fi in Melbourne. Brunswick.
