The Best Bottomless Brunch in Melbourne for a Boozy Day Out
Where the champagne flows freely and the glass is always (at least) half-full, these Melbourne’s best bottomless brunch spots have it all.
If lockdown has taught us anything it's that brunch just isn't the same without free-flowing booze. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and after attempting and failing miserably to poach eggs more times than we care to admit, no truer words have ever been spoken. It's not every day that eggs benny takes a back seat to anything, but when endless breakfast beers and mid-morning mimosas are on the cards, tasty food really is just an added bonus. As we welcome back one of the city's most cherished past times; here are our top picks for the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne.
Serving disco tunes and delicious vegan eats, Fitzroy’s buzzing 80s-themed diner will transport you to Stranger Things and back again, quicker than you can order a bloody Mary.

So, don your best disco get up and get top tapping to Evie’s epic 80’s tunes.
