229 High Street, Prahran
By far one of my favourite brunch destinations in Melbourne – Middletown! The same owners behind the well known Operator 25, they have certainly outdone themselves once again with the opening of Middletown within the well located suburb of Prahran and in the midst of a busy High Street. The build up towards the opening of Middletown was always exciting, especially since I got exclusive information from a dear friend who was part of making it happen. Everything about this most currently talked about brunch place is absolutely beautiful – from the aesthetics, details, atmosphere and of course the food! As you’ll see below – the signature Royal Blue detailing, marble bench tops, customised coffee machine and comfy booth seats are all indeed the luxurious package for a brunch catch up, where everything is all at a great price as well. Definitely can’t forget the friendly staff at Middletown from the baristas, waiters and chefs – always providing an exceptional experience for their visitors.
From my multiple visits, the all-time favourite is indeed the Coffee Waffle! I have ordered this every time I’ve visited Middletown and it literally melts in your mouth especially with the varying textures of strawberries and vanilla ice cream. In terms of the Mains, the Trio Mushrooms is another great choice where the stand out was indeed the celeriac puree and crispy pancetta. Another few mains to definitely try is the Wagyu Brisket and the classic Benedict with Pork Pastrami.
Indeed a brunch spot that is already and will continue to be buzzing!
