Brunch, Lunch, Great Coffee - The Grain Store quickly becomes an institution

One of my favourite places for a more substantial brunch or lunch is the Grain Store. This café restaurant brings together the key elements that make a successful restaurant including attentive professional staff, amazing food designed and delivered by an expert chef and a great atmosphere.

Corn Fritters with Bacon Steak

Brunch is available 7 days with an innovative menu including Corn Fritters with Bacon Steak, an Egg Sundae, yes it really does exist and it’s amazing and Buttermilk Brioche French Toast.

Today I had the Corn Fritters with Bacon Steak, as always amazing and fresh. The unusually light corn fritters were served with two slow poached eggs, apple salsa and a paprika yoghurt with a thick bacon steak topping it off.

For lunch you really can’t go past the Pork Belly drizzles with Chilli Caramel, a polenta croquette and a black pudding crumble… divine!

They have a great range of cakes and slices freshly made onsite and, on request will bake fresh cookies in just 10 minutes, served with a glass of milk offcourse!

Our local for coffee and an early breakfast start in Melbourne

Smack bang in-between Apartments of Melbourne Northbank and Apartments of Melbourne on Collins is one of our favourite little cafes ‘Cherry & Twig’. This little café punches above its weight when it comes to service, coffee and food. 

On a daily basis you will find one of our team in the café, having meetings or just a quick bre3ak in-between our tasks.  Our favourites include the Smashed Avocado with a side of bacon for breakfast, the soup of the day is usually a crowd please for lunch and we have taken a liking to the Massaman Lamb Curry in the evening.

The café is located in Downie Street, a quiet hidden laneway between Flinders Street and Flinders Lane, open from 6.30am to 4.30pm Mon to Fri, 7am until 4pm Sat and Sun with a new dinner menu available on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights from 5pm till 9pm. 

We suggest you visit Rhesa and the team at Shop 1B/555 Flinders Lane next time your in Melbourne.
