Brunch in Melbourne

My Top 5 Favourite Brunch Spots in Melbourne

One of my favourite past-times is waking up approximately 9.00am spending 30 minutes formulating the perfect brunch-dress attire (usually involves a tight-jean, big chunky knit, high boot, fedora-situation) and then heading over to one of my favourite brunch place.

Unless that is you are referring to Julia Roberts’ role in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ in which case, I really am glad all that getting in touch with nature and finding herself situation worked out for her… but it is simply not for me. Moving forward, even though I cannot stand this new craze which has recently hit the internet… where every second person feels as though their opinion will only be recognised or heard if they put their numerous opinions in number form and title their opinions ’12 Ways to Wear your Little Black Dress’ or ’15 Signs he is not the one’, I feel as though it is impossible for me to move forward without some chronological pattern to my rant.
