The brunch rut cure: Heritage Wall

We all love our classic Melburnian brekkies, but do you ever just wonder if there's more to life than smashed avos, egg and bacon rolls and acai smoothie bowls? Do you pine for something different, like an unusual twist or ingredient to really joosh up your weekend brunch? Enter Heritage Wall—the cafe that'll jolt you out of your brunch rut and into a whole new world.

Their all-day-brunch and lunch menu features fresh Middle Eastern flavours like pomegranate, tabbouli, fennel, chickpeas and feta. Expert plating and striking colours make for beautiful presentation against their chic marble table tops. The coffee is decent, too— you'll find the usual black and white varieties, as well as batch brew (for the aficionados).

We love all of The Wall's dishes (even the sweet ones, like the Nutella French Toast), but our top two picks are the Smoked Eggplant with hummus, feta, dukkah, pumpkin, tabbouli, pomegranate, cucumber raita and poached eggs, and the Eggs Benedict with green apple and fennel salad, apple sauce and poached eggs topped with hollandaise sauce and toasted ciabatta.
