When it comes to tracking down what’s open on Australia Day in Melbourne, you can’t blame us for prioritising our favourite foodie haunts. After all, a public holiday is perfect excuse to venture out for brunch in another suburb (or recover in a world of self-induced pain at your local cafe, depending on how you’ve played the extended weekend card).
