If you think New Yorkers take brunch seriously, you haven’t met Melburnians yet. While we prefer to call all morning meals involving eggs “breakfast” and typically turn our noses up at the thought of having a burger before 12pm, our devotion as a city to what Americans would call brunch is all-consuming. And Top Paddock is one of the city’s best spots for all-day breakfast any day of the week. They have everything from a simple egg and bacon roll to eggs benedict with pork jowl, yuzu apple, and bacon crumb. Do you even need us to tell you the coffee is excellent too? Go on a weekday to avoid a long wait.
