Brunch Me with Your Best Shot – 6 Venues to Brunch and Munch


We are always up for brunch, whether it is catching up with your posse or hanging with your BFF!

The only thing better than brunch is brunch with friends…did you know in 1895, Guy Beringer first coined the phrase in a London publication called Hunter’s Weekly?

In his article ‘Brunch: A Plea’, he claimed that a late social breakfast on Sunday would make life brighter for Saturday night carousers.

Today we never brunch alone and it is the best time to dish up all the gossip from the week! Here are 6 venues where you can brunch now and nap later: 

Phobulous Brunch Options

Everything on the menu is phobulous at authentic Vietnamese restaurant, Glenda Pho Cafe, on Bay Street in Port Melbourne. A chic dining space projects a friendly and comfortable vibe while attentive staff are there to make you feel at home in surrounds of whitewashed brick, glowing pendent lights, white wood and leather banquette table settings.
