Located in the halls of an old Victorian warehouse, this is the place to be for more than just brunch. The Book Club is a haven for all thinkers, typers, workers and people who just want someplace to go and relax. The breakfast menu offers full English, avocado with lime, pesto scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes and thick porridge. What’s special about this place is that it transforms itself at night with the lights down low and a space for DJ’s to come and perform. The Book Club definitely takes Sunday brunches to a whole new level.
Often, the smallest cafe’s have the best food. Lantana is a perfect example of this, serving an Australian-inspired breakfast and lunch. The restaurant provides brunch until 3pm at weekends and has a takeaway option (called ‘Latana Out’).
