An ideal CBD breakfast without the city grind
Head to Federation Square and take the stone stairs straight down to Federation Wharf where you'll find one of the city's best little spots along the Yarra River to escape from the grind of the CBD just above you.

Riverland is bang on the waterfront making it a prime spot for drinks and food, but what's perhaps a little lesser know is that their breakfast menu is pretty fab too.

The outdoor venue is perfect for enjoying the sunshine and even when the weather is not so sunny, The undercover areas and outdoor heaters are on hand to keep diners nice and toasty all year round.

The breakfast menu is concise and offers plenty of options outside the traditional fare for those keen on something a little different.

For those with a more savoury tooth, the breakfast bruschetta offers up a great meal that's Instagram worthy too with whipped feta, heirloom tomatoes, fresh herbs, and vincotto. Add a poached egg and it come out looking gorgeously delish like this:
