The Donkey Wine Store & Cafe
Looking for a healthy, delicious brunch in Fitzroy? The Donkey Wine Store & Cafe on Gertrude Street (formerly Ciuccio's) is one of our top picks for a relaxed breakfast, a takeaway lunch, or an indulgent brunch feast, complete with a speciality wine store on premises too.
Under new management as of late 2015, the new team are focussing on fresh ingredients, creative dishes, and coal pit roasted meats cooked in the venue's smoky BBQ pit. With an all-day breakfast menu that includes a flavourful goat's cheese and hazelnut omelette, a saintly 'bowl of goodness' (think of the most decadent bircher you can!), and a full breakfast that comes with all the works, Donkey is the perfect pick for something a little more elaborate to the usual avo and feta.
Healthy daily salads are available too and, if you are planning on a glass of vino for later, the wine store stocks over 100 organic, biodynamic and natural wines. We'll drink to that!
