South Melbourne boasts a number of cafes serving all day breakfasts, brunch and lunch menus and all the coffee you can consume in one sitting. Chez Dre is a must to try according to all the foodies and locals. Noisy atmosphere with outdoor and indoor seating, lovely decor and spacious seating which would suggest a family friendly place.

Best Cafe’s in Melbourne.- according to The Learner Chef

My wife and I went one early Sunday morning so there was plenty of seats to pick from but that didn’t last long. The place filled with noise and people and fresh coffee aromas.

We went for a simple breakfast of granola with berries, sourdough with poached eggs and a chai latte and standard latte to complement. They hit the spot and we expected nothing less of Chez Dre. Coffee was beautifully brewed and my poached eggs oozed with yolk porn written all over itWe didn’t order any of the sweets or macarons but don’t they look amazing?

Hidden in one of the laneway streets across from South Melbourne market (don’t worry, it’s easy to find) I call it a ‘funky cafe brunch hideout’ that I definitely would go to again and again and again.

St Edmonds Cafe – Brekkie

poached eggs on sourdoughlatte

St Edmonds Cafe joins a vast amount of funky cafe’s in Prahran with cosy seating inside and covered seating outside. Serving a brunch and lunch menu daily and dinner on Thursday and Friday night.

I went one early morning for a quick meeting so ordered a latte and poached eggs on sourdough. Bread was a bit burnt and one poached eggs was slightly over cooked and didn’t ooze out with eggporn yolk goodness but I guess it’s just your normal eggs on toast. I waited too long to take a photo of the latte but that’s a normal foodie thing to not drink or eat until photos have been taken.

latteYou can’t miss St Edmonds as the cafe stands out with it’s bright graffiti filled front face and is just off the corner of well known Greville St in Prahran.

Service wasn’t the best but I find that from a lot of these brunch cafes. I like the exterior of the cafe, the coffee isn’t that great and food was okay. Probably better cafe’s to try down the road.
