Variety is the Coco Pops to your Rice Bubbles, and you'll get the best get up and go after trying out a new breakfast spot.
The first meal of the day should be comforting. Reliable options include Auction Rooms northside, The Kettle Black southside, as well as cityside Higher Ground, Hardware Societe and Grain Store. If you're feeling adventurous, hit Victoria Street, Richmond for pho, or yum cha in Chinatown. Jump across the globe to Cibi for a traditional Japanese weekend breakfast.
This is Melbourne, so coffee needs its own mention. Your best cafe bets are those that prioritise the bean (often sourcing and roasting their own). Try Industry Beans, Seven Seeds, St Ali or Proud Mary.
