Sometimes it's nice to just be lazy and allow the day to float by. For most Melburnians that day is Sunday. How better to spend a slow Sunday then by finding a good cafe to eat a cooked breakfast and enjoy a good brew?

On the busy Bay Street of Port Melbourne is a little slice of lazy in the form of award winning cafe seven:am. They have just been awarded Melbourne's Best Breakfast Restaurant for 2011. And they deserve it. They are enthusiastic about being a hearty, happy cafe and they are. You won't leave unsatisfied.



I stumbled across seven:am about a year ago and have been recommending it ever since. How does a cafe stand out these days? There is such an array of cutesy cafes that run along Melbourne's streets, boasting this and that. For me, a cafe is a winner if it's got the vibe, a personality, great coffee and down-to-earth food. Let me quickly explain what I mean by down-to-earth food - it's real. They pride themselves on using 'green eggs', Jonesy's Dairy milk (it supports local farmers directly) and they make their own jams.

Piccolo Latte


Seven:am ticks all the boxes. Their coffee is fantastic and they know it, their food is always fresh and it's a bit different, their breakfast menu is all day. They have a vibe and there is life in the cafe. There's bikes hanging on the walls, there are photos of people's adventures, it's relaxed and honest.

Blueberry Pancakes


Seven:am has a small but decent list of local and international beers, wines and ciders. They can also cater and there are benches on the street if you want to watch the world go by and a sunny courtyard for when the weather is fine.

Next time you're up for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast or need a good dose of friendly cafe service, put seven:am on your list.
