Best Spots For Brunch (Bottomless And Otherwise!) In Melbourne
Ah brunch. Food you don't have to fly out of bed at the crack of dawn for... a meal that you can really take your time eating. Especially when it's a buffet, and especially when it doesn't stop!
If a long brunch sounds right up your alley, read on. We've got just the spots to hit the spot for you!
Ok it's at the top of everyone's list but it's a well-deserved placement!
The Big Bottom(less) Sundays at Gingerboy are legendary, with not only bottomless sparkling wine, the ubiquitious brunch mimosa, and the slightly more unusual yuzu bellinis, but also: dumplings. Is this a brunch made in heaven, or what?!
If you're hankering for a brunch made from a modern Australian adaptation of Asian hawker-style street market food (with excellent veg/vegan/gf options), get thee to Gingerboy on Sundays. It's $70 for the bottomless menu.
Where to find them: 27 - 29 Crossley St Melbourne

Cafe and wine collide at Persillade in Melbourne's east, and they do so exceptionally well on weekends when they host brunch (and alcohol is served from 9am).
If the croque madame waffle with tomato kasundi doesn't do it for you, perhaps the revuelto de morcilla; chickpeas, scrambled egg, papadum might? Kedgeree, granola with coyo, sourdough and even just eggs on toast get a look-in... if you can make your way to the menu past the extensive wine list. It's not bottomless but sometimes that's a good thing...
Find them: 150 Wellington Pde, East Melbourne
