South Yarra’s newest two-level brunch spot is speckled with greenery and goes by the name of Norman. From Vegemite avo toast to zucchini and corn waffles with red capsicum curd, Norman South Yarra prides itself on serving up classic cafe dishes with a twist.
But if you’re craving Melbourne brunch basics, never fear, because the all day breakfast menu includes smashed avo, chilli scrambled eggs and banana split french toast. If you can’t decide which dish to dig in to, Norman’s breaky board features a variety of bite-size sweet and savoury menu items which will satisfy your stomach.
If you’ve already brunched and are still feeling peckish, Norman’s lunch menu offers pulled pork bao and a southern fried chicken burger. For those who prefer to lunch meat-free, Norman can dish out their popular cauliflower popcorn tacos and a Buddha bowl loaded with veggies.
With Inglewood Coffee Roasters providing the beans and an array of smoothies, shakes and juices on the menu, there are plenty of ways to quench your thirst. And if you want to turn your brunch boozy, ask Norman for an Aperol Spritz or a Bloody Mary from the roaming Aperol Cart.
Settle in at one of the outdoor benches or take a seat inside among the indoor plants and soak up this quintessentially South Yarra brunch spot.
