5 Cafes You’ll Regret Not Going in Melbourne

Aside from its amazing Great Ocean Road views, bars and hidden alleyways — Melbourne is no doubt a city that does its brunch right. (No more amateur Eggs Benedict, thank you very much.) With an abundance of cafes with every turn you make, you can’t possibly try everything as a tourist so we’ve shortlisted 5 cafes that we personally wouldn’t miss out on. With the Australian currency at almost 1:1 with Singapore’s, there’s no better time to head on over to Melbourne!

1. Stagger Lee’s

Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while? We recommend Brunswick Street — quite the charmer with its rustic thrift stores and the slow paced life, we’d say! Like almost every graffiti-wall in Melbourne, Brunswick is filled with OOTD-worthy spots.

With its cozy interior and extensive menu, Stagger Lee’s is a cafe worthy of your calories. Boasting a wide range of food on their menu such as burgers, truffled polenta and chicken avocado toasted sandwich, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

We have something special planned for you between 9-4 tomorrow. See you then.

Along Brunswick Street, Naked For Satan is another cafe that you shouldn’t miss. With a bar (Pintxos) on the first level, a restaurant (Sukaldea) on the second and an amazing view to boot — you will probably catch us with an ice cold beer in hand till sundown.

Speaking of beer — Naked for Satan has a 15 metres long bar where you can expect over a dozen of different beers, a range of craft beers, an extensive range of imported and in-house infused Vodka, Spanish & Australian wines, cocktails and mocktails.

Additionally, they have a special offer where all tapas are $9 from Monday to Friday at 12pm to 4pm, and after 6pm on Sunday nights. Don’t miss out this affordable deal! If you love alcohol especially vodka, Naked For Satan is your paradise on Earth.

You can check out their website to look at their food and beverage menu.

Address: 285 Brunswick Street Fitzroy VIC 3065
Oppening Hours:
Pintxos – Fri & Sat 12pm-1am, Sun to Thurs 12pm-12am
Sukaldea – Mon to Sun (Lunch) 12pm-2pm, Mon to Wed (Dinner) 6pm-8pm

3. Dribbles

Calling all basketball fans and burger lovers! Dribbles is made for you. Dedicated to burgers, beer and everything basketball related, the entire interior of Dribbles is a basketball court. Basketball fans can also enjoy live matches being screened in the store.

It’s entirely fine even if you’re not a fan of basketball, you still have to try their burgers (pssst, we recommend Little Dribbler!), cheese and bacon fries and milkshake. We guarantee that you will be back for more! No images will do their food justice.

Although a little far out of town, do yourself a favour and travel out of town just to dine in Dribbles! You can also check out their website for more.

Address: Shop 2/ 1142 Mount Alexander Road, Essendon 3040 VIC
Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 11am-Late

4. Chez Dre

Offering a creative range of French-inspired breakfast & lunch menu using local produce and organic ingredients, Chez Dre also has a bakery where they sell their in-house made bread! This homely cafe is a perfect spot to catch up with friends over some Croque Madame and Pulled Pork Toasties. Did we mention that they have a few good-looking waiters and waitresses?

Connected to Chez Dre is a confectionary cafe, Bibelot which serves the most amazing melt-in-your-mouth cakes. And since you’re already at Chez Dre — why not?

Address: Rear of 285-287 Coventry Street, South Melbourne 3205
Opening hours: Weekdays 7am-4pm, Weekends & Public Holidays 8am-4pm

5. Kettle Black

You have probably seen the very insta-worthy berries ricotta hotcakes all over your feed but did you know that they originated from Melbourne? Aside from the fluffy, sweet hotcakes (good for sharing!), Kettle Black’s brunch menu also serves up a mean crispy pork belly dish. As usual, we wouldn’t pass up a cuppa in Melbourne.

There’s really no wonder that queues are non-stop for this cafe.

50 Albert rd. South Melbourne 3205

Melbourne is not only a place for food, arts and the city life, you can also become one with nature in this city. Visit places such as the Twelve Apostles, trek through Grampians National Park or head down to the famous Brighton Beach for some ootd-worthy backdrop.

When she's not lazing in bed multi-tasking between online shopping and YouTube videos, Fiona can be found at visual arts exhibits in town or late night parties with an ice cold beer in hand.
