Ahh brunch. That wonderful meal that’s half breakfast, half lunch and 100% a great life decision. Well, here we are making your decision even easier with a list of our top Brunch spots on The Ninch.

Mr Frankie Cafe

You’ll notice first Mr Frankie's thoughtfully designed interior, delivered by designer Alesha Harrison; shades of blue and pink invite you to stay awhile and enjoy the art‑deco inspired murals, purpose‑built furniture, and of course, delicious food. Touches like etched tables, local art and terracotta tiled walls give the space a curated edge, and anticipates the quality of dishes on offer.

Mr Curtis Eatery

A tropical mural, eclectic tableware and mismatched furniture mirror the bold flavours in the kitchen. Mr Curtis serves dishes inspired by Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines and there’s no lack of flavour and colour. Greeted with an abundance of hanging greenery, fiddle‑leaf fig trees and plush, velvet seating, walking into Mr Curtis feels like arriving at a friend’s house, and their menu is a great excuse for a meet‑up in Mount Martha.

Coffee break time

The Somers General

The Somers General feels like a home away from home, with vintage inspired decor, an abundance of greenery, and views of the beach and out to Phillip Island. It's not difficult to see why people are drawn here from near and far. Expect an all-day brunch menu feauturing all the classics: heirloom tomato bruschetta, chilli scramble, shakshuka and French toast.

The ultimate seaside spread

Phase Two

Nestled between a boutique and a bakery, the Phase Two decor has a decidedly Melbourne vibe, with airy white walls, polished concrete floors and hanging pots of leafy ferns. The modern Australian menu takes it cues from local produce with a side of city finesse. A prime example, their Rye Chai panna cotta with crunchy, homemade granola, honeycomb, blueberry gel and a scattering of edible flowers. It’s fresh, vibrant and different, without feeling overdone.

Brunch never looked so good

Georgie Bass Cafe and Cookery

With local produce grown up the road at Mornington Park and coffee by local roaster Commonfolk Coffee, you can’t escape the quintessentially Mornington Peninsula cuisine, and you wouldn’t want to. The menu at Georgie Bass Cafe changes seasonally with the produce, so you might just find something a little different every visit. This alone makes the trip down to Flinders a worthwhile habit, not to mention the nearby beaches, cliffs and shops to be explored.

Nordie Cafe

Nordie’s combination of dark facade and light interior are indicative of the Nordic inspired food to choose from. Their menu boasts the cafe classics as well as choices less familiar; you can try Smørrebrød, an open rye sandwich, or the Copenhagen hotdog, a locally‑made bratwurst with all the embellishments.

Delicious meals with a Nordic touch

Store Fifteen

Store Fifteen is as good (for you) as it gets. It’s a favourite among early risers, opening from 6.30am and caffeinating hungry customers every day but Monday. Step inside and a quick look at the menu is enough to make any health conscious bruncher weak at the knees. The team have worked to create a delicious, seasonal menu; almost everything is made fresh and in‑house – even the almond milk – and as much as possible, is locally sourced.
