South of Johnstone - Melbourne - 46 Oxford Street, Collingwood

Hidden way behind a leafy front, this place looks small from the outside but is large and beautifully decorated on the inside. It has an arty, eclectic feel to it.
We were here for brunch.

I found the menu a bit awkward.  None of the breakfast choices really jumped out and said grab me.

In the end, we added and took away our own ingredients.

Good but not fantastic. The lightly toasted bread (as promised) was cooked to buggery and too hard. The eggs were well cooked and the avocado etc etc etc were tasty.

I am finding though that all of these brunch places around Melbourne are starting to taste the same. You always now see mushroom with thyme, smashed avocado with goats cheese and an omelette with gourmet cheese.

It is a great business - you now pay $20 for eggs on toast and the turnover is enormous. This is where the money in Melbourne is being made my friends.

Service was also a bit cold.

But I will still come back for the atmosphere and the great coffee.

About $30 each.
