Lifestyle, Travel


February 21, 2018

Half the reason I love Aus so much is due to the food and brunch culture… it’s amazing, and that’s a complete understatement! I have previously ticked off a few spots before (which you can find here), so it was good to try some new places!

Stagger Lees

Where? 276 Brunswick St, Fitzroy VIC 3065, Australia

What did I eat? I can’t find it on the menu online… but some kind of smashed pumpkin on toast with eggs and a side of bacon!

Verdict? AMAZING!

Drug Store Espresso

Where? 194 Toorak Rd, South Yarra VIC 3141, Australia

What did I eat?

DRUGSTORE ZUCCHINI & CORN FRITTERS with fried halloumi, asian slaw of bok choy, carrot, cabbage, bean shoots, kale, vietnamese mint, nuoc cham dressing & a poached egg (VG, GF) and I added an egg!

Verdict?  Didn’t photograph well (LOL) but super delicious!

Ruby Lane

Where? 200 Pittwater Rd, Manly NSW 2095, Australia

What did I eat?  The Rainbow Bowl –

A low carb medley of grilled king mushrooms, turmeric cauli ower rice & lentil salad, broccoli,fermented veggies and zucchini ribbons with tamari hoisin sauce and a sprinkle of dukkah, and again, I added an egg!

Verdict? Definitely recommend! The pancake stacks did give me food envy though.


Where? 4 Lavarack Rd, Mermaid Beach QLD 4218, Australia

What did I eat? BSKT BREKKY SALAD – Roasted Sweet Potato, Baby Beets, Broccolini,
Pepitas & Grilled Halloumi, topped with Poached Egg and Maple Reduction

Verdict? At this point I’m completely addicted to breakfast salads, and this did not disappoint!

Cali Press

Where? 215 Coogee Bay Rd, Coogee NSW 2034, Australia (they’re everywhere)

What did I eat (drink)? VANILLA SKY MYLK – Filtered Water, Dates, Almonds, Manuka Honey, Vanilla Bean

Verdict? When you need a spoon to drink a smoothie.. you know it’s a good one!


Where? 5b 21-25 Fletcher Street Byron Bay NSW 2481

What did I eat? I tried some kind of coconut smoothie, a green smoothie, and I also had a raw (birthday) cake that was like a mango cheesecake!

Verdict? AMAZING!! Need to go back for a big smoothie bowl!


Where? 1/399 Ewingsdale Rd, Byron Bay NSW 2481, Australia

What did I eat? Again, another without the menu online! I had some kind of breakfast salad (again) with halloumi (I’m dairy in tolerant but YOLO), and some kind of ‘fake’ coffee with mushrooms!

Verdict? As AMAZING as it looks on Instagram!
