Where to Bottomless Brunch in Melbourne
Brunch. Booze. Bottomless. Three words that were born to be together! The trend of bottomless brunches has finally reached the shores of Australia and Melburnians couldn’t be happier. After all, bottomless brunch in Melbourne means delicious food and free-flowing cocktails. What’s not to love?
Originating in New York and building up a frenzy in the UK, it’s a wonder why it took so long to arrive Down Under. Every time you finish your drink, the lovely staff at your chosen Melbourne café will grab you another. And another, and another, until your brunch session is up. There’s literally nothing we’re into more, so grab some mates and get lit all morning long!
We’ve put together a list of the city’s best spots and we promise there’s something delicious and thirst-quenching for everyone. Whether it’s Mexican in the Melbourne CBD, pan-Asian in Richmond or Australian café classics in South Yarra, our recommendations have your next bottomless brunch covered.

Their hawker feed-me menu is equally generous and flavoursome. Take your pick of freshly shucked oysters, salt and pepper squid, satay chicken skewers and chilli french fries with kaffir lime dressing. Is your mouth watering yet?

Fargo & Co
This chic and modern eatery in Richmond delivers the bottomless goods every Saturday and Sunday. Fargo & Co is situated in a 1900s heritage brick building, meaning the atmosphere is classy and the vibe a dazzling mix of sophistication and fun.
Dine on the terrace and enjoy bottomless spritzes, mimosas, prosecco and moscato alongside a brunch item of your choice. Bottomless brunches are designed to indulge, so we recommend the smokey barbeque bacon and egg burger or the piña colada waffles with brûlée pineapple. Did we mention it comes with coconut and rum ice cream?

The National Hotel
Weekend sessions at The National Hotel are spot on with their spread of pan-Asian snacks and bottomless cocktails. Dust off your Friday and Saturday nights out with a hair of the dog, whether that’s a sparkling sangria or a feisty Bloody Mary.
Take your pick from the menu and feast on their delicious Asian-style pub food, such as fries with red curry aioli or duck-fat roasted potatoes. We recommend the more authentic dishes like chicken dumplings with lemongrass, beef and citrus larb, crispy pork belly bao or spicy squid with ginger-flower sweet chilli. With many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options available, this place is fab for all.
