High Street is the place to find some of the tastiest and most innovative cafés in Melbourne.

Spice up your average brunch at Moby, where the scrambled eggs comes with Sriracha chilli and the Cherry Ripe Ricotta Hotcakes are served with chocolate sauce and fairy floss. The menu has a strong Middle Eastern influence with the clever use of grains and spices to transform traditional brunch dishes into a flavoursome affair.

Phillipa's serves up delicious fresh bread and baked goods made from natural ingredients and family recipies. 8days is the spot to score the perfect coffee, with beans roasted by Five Senses then grounded in-house eight days later. For an Italian-inspired brunch with a modern twist, head to Bruno&Co for great food and fine wine.
