Best breakfast Melbourne venues

Whether you are interested in Australian national cuisine, traditional meals or specific dietary options, you will find many a restaurant to meet your needs. Listed below are some of Melbourne’s finest breakfast venues.

The Kettle Black

The Kettle Black serves both national and international cuisine. The place is prized for its creativity, which is to say you may expect only the finest ingredients, mixed in an unexpected yet seldom more delicious way. I.e., King Island crayfish and Flinders Island wallaby are easily coupled with Kettle’s house-fermented yoghurt.

The place is relaxed — displaying the panorama of St Andrews — and features birch-wood stools and a marble bar. The Kettle Black serves custom-blend espresso from 5 Senses; during the season, a coffee cart is placed out the front for takeaways.

The Kettle is close to just about any hotel Melbourne CBD.


Rudimentary serves delicious food in a pleasant garden setting with a glass wall, allowing a view of herbs and lavender beds.

It’s not all about appearance, however. Rudimentary offers a tasty mixture of international dishes. Its chefs — Shane Donelly and Thomas Ainslie (formerly of Duchess of Spotswood) — mix fermented and pickled ingredients with some of the world’s best loved dishes.

Examples include nashi and crème fraiche and house-cured ocean trout with pickled cucumber. The place is famous for its delicious Vietnamese coffee.


Moby serves Middle Eastern breakfast in an eye-pleasing setting. The restaurant constitutes three levels leading to an open rooftop. Example dishes include salads (quite a lot of them, too), breakfast one with buckwheat, kale, avocado, basil, chilli, dukkah and a poached egg, and the harissa beans with shanklish cheese. Lots of oriental spices are used.

Ned’s Bake

Ned’s Bake serves various breads, such as green olive grissini and French and Italian-style loaves. Buns, pastries and tarts are also served, as are mini brioche sandwiches.

For healthy dietary options, there are fruit cakes with raspberry cream, pistachio and strawberries.
