They say it is the most important meal of the day, but so many of us are not morning people.

White Lindt Chocolate & Raspberry Slice with Coffee

Perhaps you know the feeling; you wake up and it is far too bright to open your eyes. You feel like your head has not been against that pillow for nearly long enough.

Perhaps you have a shocking migraine from the great night the night before.

You know you need a good feed from your favourite breakfast cafe in Melbourne but where do you choose?

Melbourne is such a foodies haven we are spoilt for choice with our cafe culture and especially breakfasts.

It does not seem to matter if you are in the CBD or the suburbs, we have fantastic breakfast and lunch cafes throughout all of Melbourne.

Belgium Chocolate Croissant with Cream

So where /what is your favourite?

Is it laid-back cruisy breakfast or an all-you-can-eat buffet?

Which location venue or café provides the best place to take breakfast in Melbourne?

For a bit of a fun way to start the day Madams Sousou on Brunswick Street Fitzroy has great Bloody Mary's with horseradish, great if you are so hung over you can't face a solid feed for breakfast.

Warren Glen Nursery in Warrandyte provides beautiful views over the country scenes and a lovely breakfast menu *Warning it gets really busy here on weekends.

Gattica in St Kilda does great eggs.

Brunettis off Lygon street in Carlton has a really extensive menu and something for everyone.

Ripe at Sassafras provides all of the Yarra Valley produce in a lovely rustic setting.

Babka on Brunswick Street has typical Russian fare with great bakery items, although it can get quite busy for breakfast.

If you're after more of a Park style setting then perhaps you might like Madelines at Jells Park in Wheelers Hill. You can sit overlooking the parkland and have breakfast in a really lovely environment.

Some of the fancy five-star hotels in the city will do great buffet breakfast and they often have special offers such as buy one get one free - a good way to fill your tummy for the entire day.

The Post Office Cafe in Hurstbridge serves eggs florentine or eggs benedict in a great countryside setting.

If you feel like getting back to nature and hanging out with the hippies on a Saturday, you can always take a drive out to the St Andrew's Market. They have a variety of coffee, chocolate and food stalls were you can have a roaming breakfast.

Berry Pancakes on Board the Echuca Riverboats

These are just a few suggestions, but we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Where do you go for breakfast when you can't be bothered making it for yourself?

There is a new Pakistani restaurant in Dandenong called Tabbaq which has a traditional breakfast on weekends. If you want to try something new, you should try the halwa puri here. awesome.

Well it may be a chain but The Pancake Parlour do scrumptious scrambled eggs if you can get there early enough so that it is still breakfast time.

I tried Sweethearts in Sth Melbourne today - wasn't greatly impressed, it looks like it would be good most days but perhaps today was a little busy. It has a great menu if they can pull it off.
