Top 20 Melbourne

It's been a while since I did the original Top 10 wrap-up for Melbourne breakfasts. So to make up for lost time I am now doing a Melbourne Top 20. Some clever-dick will probably nit-pick about Mt Macedon. Whatever. It's greater-Melbourne. Sort of. Breakfast Blog mavens will also not that I am listing them all as an alphabetical bucket this time, not ranked in any particular order. It's just coincidence that Apte comes top and also happens to have the highest score.

Apte, Alphington
Balzari, Carlton
Blue Tongue, Elwood
Botanical, South Yarra
Braeside Cafe, Mt Macedon
Circa, St Kilda
European, Melbourne
Fandango, North Melbourne
Filter Cafe, Fitzroy
Galleon Cafe, St Kilda
Greasy Joe's, St Kilda
Green Grocer, North Fitzroy
Harveys, South Yarra
Las Chicas, Balaclava
Mario's, Fitzroy
Mart 130, Middle Park
Panette, South Melbourne
Replete Providore, Hawthorn
Tom Phat, Brunswick
Walter's Wine Bar, Southbank

I'm actually pretty ambivalent about my breakfasts at the Green Grocer and Mario's, but Fandango, Filter, Galleon and Las Chicas have similarly won my heart... erm, stomach. Vive le difference!

I'm looking forward to trying some of your other picks in 2008.

congrats on your nomination in The Bloggies - reading about it in the news made me visit your blog, so this is my first time here :)

I haven't been to all of the cafes you mention, but I definitely agree with Greasy Joes and Tom Phat. I'll vist some more soon :)

Also, another great place is The Corner on Bellair in Kensington - great french toast, great salmon and eggs, and exceptional service.

Good luck again,
Carly :)

Come off it. Mario's food is terrible and has been for a long time, the service at Walter's Wine Bar ranges from rude to condescending, and Circa is probably the worst value for money in Melbourne, just beating the charlatans at Vue de Monde.

Greasy Joes is overrated. I went there a couple months ago and my breakfast was disgusting. the mushrooms tasted really weird and my portion was tiny! not impressed.

As a Flemington local and regular customer I feel I have to let you know about a little place I suggest you keep a close eye on - which may one day hit the list. Its called 'MADE' on Pin Oak Crescent in Flemington. Just up from Peppers (which seems to have taken a dive in recent months), MADE has rejuvenated this cosy little strip with its spanish influenced, slow food type breakfast. The baked eggs are delicious and the mushrooms so fresh they nearly jump off the plate. Fair trade Supreme coffee is the cornerstone.

Pleeze, folks, not the Green Grocer. Ghaaastly coffee, close to world's worst practice for service, undersize portions, holier than though attitude. (And if you check the boxes the stuff comes in ... well, a whole lot of big chemical users must have gone organic since I was buying fruit and vegies in bulk.

Must say that I agree with some of your picks but hope to find Dexter on Queens Pde in your next list. I have discovered this hidden Clifton Hill gem recently and think that their decor/venue/coffee/service/food combo is a delight. What makes the place even better is that they have beer in the evenings.

You should check out Le Chien in Seddon. I'm living in London at the moment and Sunday brunches there is definitely one of the things I miss most about Melbourne.

I'm surprised that Small Bloc (Lygon st Nth end)hasn't made a mention on here, Summer breakfast from there is my all time favourite.
Also Rathdowne st foodstore does an amazing ricotta hotcakes with poached pear and lavendar icecream.

Hi Jamie. Just wanted to say that we love your site and always try to check out rhe places you review. Thought you might be interested to know that Apte Cafe in Alphington has just won the National cafe of the year award for Delicious Magazine. I have been going there for over 2 years now and they never let me down! The coffee is always excellent and the hotcakes are to die for. Look forward to having you back in Melbourne soon. Pam

by far the worst top 20 I have ever seen and eaten has your car broken down? or perhaps the public transport system has finally imploded on itself and has left you trapped under some rock out in the middle of nowhere with nothing but your laptop and a one of your remaining digits still functioning you compiled this list as your last long is on the way little one Im sending my mechanic, have spoken to connex ...all will be well again

I'm shocked at the Mario inclusion and the Small Bloc exclusion... the bread at Mario's is sandwich bread catastrophe

An unpretentious Richmond gem is Chimmeys on Bridge rd. The best breaky in Melbourne you should check it out. The best Hollandaise warm and creamy with a hint of citrus. The house made maple granola with blueberries and cranberries is to die for. Also good is their apple bread served with roasted quince poached pear and pistachios. Organic coffee is always good too.

I don't think you have been to Geasy Joes in a while's horrid and must agree with others and say that Marois is totally average!

A lot has changed since this list was made. Try Mitte on michael street North Fitzroy for great breakfast crumble and an awesome chick pea bake. Or Pearl Oyster on Miller Street, West Preston. They always have something different on the specials board, and Fair trade Supreme Coffee (of course). Julio's in North Fitzroy does a pretty good brekky too - and they pull a nice strong Supreme Coffee!

Hi Jamie, places are changed since you last posted the "top 20 melbourne" if you are coming back here today, you will found there are so many good cafes just around the corner.

Im going to Boston (+NYC) early next year to visit my bf, he just went there for studying his master. Can't wait to get there, BUT, not sure about their food after i read your comments and photos (+my bf's comments). Could I suggest you to do a "top 20 Boston and NYC" for our anyone who want to visit over there. Btw, will visit the places you suggested.

Thank you,

What a big disappointment Fenix was. Went there for breakfast last Sunday and won't be returning there anytime soon. Coffee was awful no flavour and so milky. Bacon was obviously pre-cooked and left in the bain-marie dry and tasteless.One mushroom and one small tomato. Poached eggs were good and the home-made hash brown was nice and crunchy but on the small size. Sides were also on the small size. And it cost us $55.

Once you have watched the movie and identified all of the points that you want to critique, you should develop a main thesis that you intend to defend using evidence from the movie itself. In this way, a movie critique format is very much a type of academic essay as it starts with an introduction paragraph, thesis statement, body paragraphs with topic sentences, and a conclusion discussing the broader implications of your critique.
