5 Melbourne must try cafes for 2019

A list of cafes to start your brunching of 2019! These are the cafes that stood out to us towards the end of last year – make sure you give them a try!

Danish Nosh, Caulfield

Why did it make the list: With almost everything hand made on site, Danish Nosh pull out all the stops with their pastries. Now adding a new brunch menu for 2019, they’re definitely a must try.

Suzie Scribbles’ insider tip: If you don’t try some while you’re in store, make sure you take some pastries home for later.
