Au79 is one of Melbourne's most popular brunch spots, and it's easy to see why. Open for breakfast and lunch daily, this cafe boasts an exotic and filling menu, with classics like eggs benedict and smashed avocado toast as well as more unique dishes like quinoa fritters and ricotta pancakes. We personally enjoy its juicy wagyu burger and house smoked mussel, caviar and creme fraiche on charred sourdough. And of course, no meal is complete without its house blend coffee made fresh in its own roastery.

Don't skimp out on their dishes either! If you're looking for a sweet treat, their pineapple and pandan buns are very popular. Their menu boasts a range of savoury breakfasts such as bacon & egg toasties, cheesy corn and polo bun with katsu chicken.
