Having been in Melbourne for 3 months now, I can definitely say that brunch is not taken lightly here. Just like Montreal, brunch is a trend that has restaurants booming with creative new ways to incorporate seasonal foods into savoury and sweet dishes.
Upon exploring multiple brunch spots around town, I’ve noticed a few trends that have yet to emerge in Canada.
