Best Spots For Brunch (Bottomless And Otherwise!) In Melbourne
Ahhh 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 9 am).
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
