I’m tipping there’s gonna be a few sore heads in Melbourne this Sunday, after the AFL Grand Final clash between the Hawks and the Eagles, so I’ve updated my list of top picks for places to refuel with food your body will thank you for:

1. The Beatt Cafe in Beatty Avenue, Armadale
OMG hot pick: Mexi eggs served on organic blue corn tortillas with spiced organic lamb, black bean, tomato and red onion salsa, avo lime smash topped with chipotle aioli, smoked paprika and 2 organic fried eggs.  Need we say more?

2. The Grain Store in Flinders Lane, CBD
OMG hot pick: wild mushrooms, poached eggs and pecorino with grilled sourdough, green peas, crisp kale and romesco.

Seratonin Eatery banana pancakes

3. Serotonin Eatery in Madden Grove Burnley
OMG hot pick: positive banana flour pancakes served with banana ice cream and berries are a must for sweet tooth – they look decadent but you can eat these without an ounce of guilt!

4. Little Big Sugar Salt in Abbotsford
OMG hot pick: Bowl of Health – general greens feat. smashed avocado, noodles (that’s zucchini noodles), shredded brussels, herbs, harissa butterbean puree, beetroot, enoki mushrooms, herbs, poached egg + the option to add pulled pork.

 5. Heal.Thy.Self.Co in Ballarat Street, Yarraville
OMG hot pick: A rich organic tomato sugo full of seasonable vegetables, goats cheese and free range eggs, gently baked and served with sourdough toast and an optional side of chorizo.

OMG hot pick: Ful Medames with fava beans, cumin, parsley, lemon, green eggs, pickled turnips and super grain toast.

8Green Cup in Chapel Street, South Yarra
OMG hot pick: If the thought of waiting in  long queues for a table is too much for you this Sunday, you better pop on down to Green Cup for their signature smoothie and famous smashed avo on seeded bread with chilli or chia… it is seasoned to absolute perfection!

If you don’t make it out of bed in time for breakfast, or even lunch, for that matter, not to worry – the guys at Sauced Pasta Bar in Chapel Street, Windsor and Bourke Road Camberwell deliver within a 5km radius of their stores!
