One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. - Virginia Woolf


As Melburnians, we are truly spoilt for choice in respect of food options. To my list of Melbourne's popular foodie spots, I have now added Brick Lane.

We recently visited Brick Lane for brunch. Prior to our visit, we called and tried to make a booking and were advised that they accommodate walk-ins only. Tucked away at 33 Guildford Lane, Melbourne CBD, Brick Lane is housed in an old brick building. The small alfresco dining arrangement was quite popular. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted and welcomed inside and shown to a cosy corner. At 11:30am on a Sunday, the place was buzzing with life.

A friendly waitress explained to us that we needed to check in using the QR code on the table, and check the menu online and then place our order with the wait staff. The online menu was dotted with colourful photos of all-day breakfast, sandwich, burger, and salad options which got my juices flowing and made my hunger pangs more pronounced. There was also a wide range of children's food, tea, coffee, milkshake and fresh juice options. Most menu items had additional dietary information such as V for vegetarian, VG for vegan, GF for gluten-free, and VGO for Vegan Option Available.

After much deliberation, we placed our order of corn and chili waffles, southern style crispy chicken sandwich, dirty chai and cappuccino. Almost every table was occupied with patrons engaged in animated conversations over Instagram-worthy food. Our food arrived promptly and we tucked into our meal without further ado.

The corn and chili waffles were freshly made. The poached eggs were just perfect! Accompanied by the generous serve of smashed avocado and house tomato relish, and layered with runny egg yolk, every bite of my waffles was scrumptious.

My partner enjoyed his southern style crispy chicken sandwich which was a delightful combination of avocado, American cheddar, baby cos, pickled red onions, Sriracha aioli in toasted pumpkin sourdough. The chicken was crispy on the outside and tender inside. I sampled some of the mashed potatoes and found it surprisingly refreshing with hints of herbs; it was a unique and yummy take on the traditional concept of mashed potatoes. My partner rated the sandwich 10 out 10. Dirty chai and cappuccino were nice too.

The presentation of the food was lovely and the flavor was top-notch. The service was warm and the ambiance had groovy vibes which was conducive to conversation. The food was reasonably priced. Our meal cost $47.50 altogether.

To sum it up, dining at Brick Lane was a delightful experience. We will certainly return for more because they have got what we need!

Great place Joy. I really like old buildings that have been recycled for other uses, particularity to cafes and restaurants. That chicken sandwich looks so good.

Looks like it was a former printing business from the sign
