While the hardest part of the morning is getting out of bed, it’s that much easier when you know you’re heading down Fish Lane for a hearty breakfast. Whether you’re looking to impress at a work meeting, catching up with friends or treating mum to a coffee, here’s where to start your morning right.

Feel like a classic coffee and almond croissant combo? Step off Melbourne St and into the warm embrace of Hoo Ha for grab and go caffeine, and delightful pastries from Crust & Co.

Recently named one of the top 50 brunches by the Sunday Mail, it’s a no-brainer that Gauge’s all-day breakfast is a must. Think white anchovy with egg mayo and cured pork cheek, or chocolate avo mousse – and yes, it is perfectly acceptable to eat chocolate for breakfast when you’re at Gauge.

Roll into Billykart for a breakfast of champions. Whether you’re into brekky burgers or buttermilk and ricotta pancakes, you’ll be set for the day – and if you can’t choose, just convince your mates to share.

If you’re all about capturing that perfect Insta-pic, Middle Eastern-inspired Nom is your go-to. Enjoy avo and poached egg on sourdough or toasted bagels from a gorgeous blush booth, and pair it with a coffee for an early morning boost.

Stroll up the sidewalk of Five Sisters and grab a few Greek eats including Greek brekky wraps, baked eggs and a brekky stack with grilled haloumi. Thirsty? Their freshly made juice is a must.

For a brekkie fit for any occasion, head down Fish Lane.
