Overview

Best breakfast spots

Variety is the Coco Pops to your Rice Bubbles, and you'll get the best get up and go after trying out a new breakfast spot.

The first meal of the day should be comforting. Reliable options include northside Birdman Eating and Auction Rooms, southside My Sister Says and The Kettle Black, as well as cityside Hardware Societe and Cumulus Inc.

If you're feeling adventurous, hit Victoria Street, Richmond for pho, or yum cha in Chinatown. Jump across the globe to Cibi for a traditional Japanese weekend breakfast or go Latino at El Atino & Co.

This is Melbourne, so coffee needs its own mention. Your best cafe bets are those that prioritise the bean (often sourcing and roasting their own). Try Industry Beans, Seven Seeds, St Ali or Proud Mary.
