If you see my snapchat earlier today, you know that I went to have lunch in this newly opened brunch place called Punchbowl Canteen in Port Melbourne. Port Melbourne has been in my food radar lately. They definitely have some of the yummiest and hippest brunch place in Melbourne. To get to Punchbowl, I recommend driving here because it's located in the industrial area. But there's also bus service near the place so it won't be much trouble to reach it.
I rarely have a bad brunch in Melbourne, but there's only a few cafes I feel worth raving about.
Is Punchbowl one of them? Yep. Absolutely.
It's so easy to love because it's just so lighthearted and fun. It's a classic Australian brunch place where people just want to enjoy sunny day, have a good talk with good company and drink fancy coffee. And don't make me start talking about the foods! I wish I could take you all with me to try them. I must say it's pretty darn delicious, especially the Pumpkin Doughnut, Baked Semolina Gnocchi and Porridge Three Ways (the goldilocks dilemma). I can't get enough of the porridge with tapioca, fresh lime zest, peanuts, and coconut milk. Simply the best. But go ahead to try the others, and don't be scared if you can't decide because it's quite hard to be disappointed with the food here. In the meantime, enjoy the photos!
