In a city where new cafes pop up seemingly overnight, it is comforting to know that stalwarts of the breakfast scene like St Kilda’s Galleon aren’t going anywhere.
For over twenty years, the Galleon has been dishing up the most delicious breakfasts south of the river and whilst its clientele may have gone from hippy to hipster, its popularity has never waned.
These days the menu tempts with a diverse range of options sure to thrill vegetarians and carnivores alike. Sweet potato hash browns topped with spinach and chutney, scrambled tofu with enoki mushrooms, or brekky bagels are just some of the perennial favourites. Rice pudding and french toast are amongst the many offerings for those with a sweeter tooth. Strong coffees and more-than-generous portions make the Gall’ the destination of choice for that home cooked fry-up you’re craving but could never make this well yourself.
With its ramshackle decor and energetic vibe, the Galleon is the ultimate haunt for slipping into a booth (if you’re lucky enough to get one) with the weekend papers and whiling away a Sunday afternoon. It’s a local treasure not to be missed.
