Brunch at South Bank has endured a major evolution over the past decade, to become a magnificently gluttonous and delectable menu staple. Rest assured, we’ve done the tough work and hunted down the best brunches in South Bank for you to get your hands on.
There’s nothing like the smell of fresh Lebanese fair on a Sunday morning. With all of Baba Ganouj’s dishes packed to the brim with flavour, this homely restaurant strikes to our brunch heart. Try the Baba Ganouj Special, a mixture of turkish bread, spinach, Kafta patty, eggs, mushrooms and hollainaise to make your taste buds dance.
Need a quick morning fix on-the-go? Espresso Garage has answered your prayers! Nestled in an unassuming nook between Grey and Little Stanley Streets, this hole-in-the-wall is a caffeine-addict’s failsafe haven for a quality brew. The best part? They serve up a delicious brunch too – hello, fresh breaky muffins and tasty scrambled eggs!
Next Door Kitchen and Bar
Next Door Kitchen and Bar is one of our favourite places to do breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner AND dessert. Think pancakes with banana, Nutella cream and Italian meringue, corn fritters with bacon, grilled tomato and onion jam, and honey almond granola. The disappointment is REAL if you miss out, trust us.
One of South Bank’s best-kept brunch secrets lays hidden at Southbeach Social. As a destination with a view, all of your brunch favourites (hello avo smash, goodbye mortgage!) are available every weekend. You can thank us later.
The Charming Squire
After many years of delivering all-around heavenly dessert and dinner sustenance, The Charming Squire have recently marked themselves as the ultimate in South Bank brunches… Trust us, we’ve done the hard work and tried it for ourselves! Our top pick? The Apple Cider and Sage Fritters, served with chipotle spiced apple puree, BBQ pork and poached eggs. Get here STAT.
