More than just dessert; some serious Om Noms
One of the city's favourite dessert bar's, Om Nom, located on the ground level of The Adelphi Hotel, has always had a killer reputation for serving up some of Melbourne's best sweets.

But now, it can be on your breakfast radar too with a morning menu that serves up a whole lot more than sugary treats. If you're the type who loves a sugary kick start to your morning, you'll find some of the sweet stuff you might expect from this dessert bar on the menu such as the berry hotcakes with marscapone, mixed berries, passionfruit curd and maple syrup but the majority of the menu leans toward the savoury side.
High tea lovers will also get a kick out of high breakfast, served on a three tiered stand and inclusive of a variety of smaller breakfast options for those who like a little of everything and are happy grazing.

The apple bircher offers up the right amount of sweetness with oats, apple milk, fresh granny smith apple and yoghurt.
The atmosphere is sophisticated and very modern and, an ideal for those who aren't morning people, it's also dark and quiet inside so sleepyheads aren't necessarily jolted awake any sooner than before their coffee kicks in.

Also on the menu, the Granola with toasted almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pecans and honey caramel.
Located just a short stroll from Flinders Street Station on Flinders lane, it's worth the pop in to suss out the menu. While it may be changing to add in some new dishes to try, have a peek below to get an idea of what you're in for and enjoy!
