Lucky Penny

Yoohoo, my pal Jolene is in town! She came all the way from Brisbane for a few days and it was my job to share Melbournians’ favourite morning activity, brunch! We also caught up with Heather today before us girls head to The Royal Melbourne Show. And of course, a beautiful roast is mandatory.

Lucky Penny was the venue, a lovely little café in the heart of South Yarra. Jol had a morning roll with egg and bacon sandwiched in soft bread. What made this sandwich special was the amount of tomato chutney and aioli that was slathered in between.

Lucky Penny also happens to serve some of the best waffles in town. Seriously sinful, but we would kill to have more of those waffles with cold chocolate and peanut butter cream inspired by rocky road.

If you rather stick with the old classic, try A Few Things. It includes a DIY muesli bowl for you to have as much or little yoghurt and milk as you prefer, a fruity side and a slice of carrot cake. Of course, the carrot cake was the best part.

Jan and his protein packed meal, screamed king to all other breakfast options, the big breakfast. The best part of the dish was the smoked meatballs and the amazing bacon slices.

Lucky Penny offers hearty food at affordable prices. Especially in a place like South Yarra, finding an inexpensive cafes is quite the challenge these days.
