It’s hard to ween yourself off a regular cafe’ or favourite restaurant when the coffee’s great, the breakfasts’ are gourmet and the menu is seasonal. When you’re so used to what you know and overwhelmed with Melbourne’s cafe’ culture, it’s easy to miss some unique eateries right before your eyes. Recognised for their signature dish of baked eggs (4 ways), Birdman Eating is enjoyed best when devouring dishes off the breakfast menu.
Conveniently served through to 5pm, ordering safe is not advised. With some dishes lacking in flavour, go against the grain and indulge in something unique with a burst of freshness.
For tasty tapas, exotic desserts and the best breakfast source for a morning hangover cure, head to Birdman Eating for some unlikely flavour combinations. Birdman Eating’s funky cafe’ is a perfect when shopping on Smith, Brunswick and Gertrude Streets. It’s central location and mezze style menu appeals to those who want to share a plate and be in and out with no fuss. Great for a casual date, work lunches and lazy Sundays.
