26th Sep 2023

Some mornings are meant for sleep-ins and some are meant for endless mimosas. And when you’re in the mood for that kind of wake-up, there’s only one thing to do: bottomless brunch.

So, whether you’re partial to hair of the dog or just want to let the drinks flow, there’s a bottomless brunch in Melbourne with your name all over it—rooftop, underground and everywhere in between. Check out our list of the best bottomless brunches in Melbourne in 2023:

Assembly Ground


Assembly Ground has launched its 1.5-hour bottomless brunch sessions just in time for the summer season. The “Classic Bottomless Brunch” ($59pp) offering includes staple dishes like their fritters, chunky avo, french toast and chicken tacos, plus free-flowing mimosas, Aperol Spritz, bubbly, wine or beer.

Or, you can upgrade your booking to the “Bougie Bottomless Brunch” ($79pp) with limitless cocktails and espresso martinis and the choice of any meal on the menu, though it's hard to look past Assembly Ground’s jam doughnut hotcakes, fluffy cinnamon doughnut hotcakes filled with warm homemade strawberry jam, topped with double cream mascarpone and fresh raspberries. To secure a table on Friday, Saturday or Sunday for a boozy brunch, you’ll want to book over here.

The Firehouse


The Firehouse is a converted smokery and bar in the heart of Ringwood in Melbourne’s east. The former fire station, erected in 1929 has been repurposed somewhat ironically to a smoking house and eatery with some of the best American-style BBQ in the city, they’ve recently put some finishing touches on the quaint Victorian-period space with a new beer garden, and an open-air deck but the venue still retains some of its original fittings including the firepole.

Every Saturday and Sunday from 11am you can get involved in the Firehouse’s bottomless brunch, a $65 excursion to the south with bottomless cocktails and your choice of a brunch number. Think the likes of smoked brisket buns, cheeseburgers, baked cowboy beans and a smoked chicken bagel.

Provincial Rooftop


Fitzroy's Provincial Rooftop for a hefty two-hour bottomless brunch on Saturdays, 12pm until 3pm. $65 will give you access to the likes of free-flowing prosecco or cocktail jugs along with a brunch number such as a tuna Poke bowl for those who like it light, or fried chicken and waffles if you’re feeling cheeky. Those who feel like mixing it up can tap into the beer, prosecco and select cocktails, too. Book here.



The flame-licked Firebird has become a favourite among the south since its 2020 opening, and with a bottomless offering this hot, they'll likely convert a northsider or two.

The boozy 'Endless Lunch'  is a 7-dish spread of their heavy hitters, from limitless grilled oysters and special fried rice to glasses of French sparkling, beers, and spritz. It's a two-hour sitting that takes place  every weekend, the entire set menu is $69 but add $35 and that's when the drinks flow continuously. Book in here

Bodega Underground 


The red neon-lit Mexican diner dishes up one hell of a Bottomless brunch each weekend.

This fiesta runs across Friday, Saturday and Sunday and you can choose to sit inside or in the laneway. Book in here
