    oooooh how awesome are thos hot cakes! and all the food reallY!

  2. JohannaGGG

    I love your salad but probably would have gone for the hotcakes – though sharing both would make me very happy. Alas I have not been there because it was not even on the horizon when I lived in Collingwood some year ago. Am sure I would love to visit but maybe without a small rascal at my side who would spill water, screech loudly and refuse to eat any of the fine food!

    Small social victories! I can relate.

    I would interpret that tasty-looking coffee as a fennec fox, which can only bode well for your future, since they’re super cute.

    Those hotcakes look awesome! And thank you for reminding me that I have some fresh fisg in my bag that I bought earlier today lol. Im enjoying one as we speak 🙂

    Well my dear, it appears there is another side to your family that you’ve kept hidden from us until now!
    Breaking noses??!! I imagine that is a skill your brother obtained during one of his mountain top adventures?

    Those hotcakes are calling my name…

    The fig salad looks gorgeous!

    Proud Mary – what an catchy name and their menu is certainly unique and interesting

  11. Anna Johnston

    I gotta get me some of that Proud Mary tukka….., looks awesomely magnificent. I have heard about this wondrous Brunch Mecca but have never stepped foot in said hallowed ground…, so glad you went forth & photographed 😉 😉
    Remind me ‘not’ to ask you to help me write menu’s lovely…., the “drink with pineapple in it and something else” was such a freakishly Hannahism, (snickering away here).
    Great post….., can’t wait to hear about Eagles nose.

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha your folk are wild! Breaking noses! Excellent food! And half reflecting faces. You need a tv show 😛

  13. gmasydney

    Surely Eagle has a ‘beak’. Did they call the RSPCA?

    OOOH. Proud Mary looks fabulous. Another Melbourne food highlight that I’ve never been to- or heard of til now. I googled it and it’s mere minutes from where I live in a rather impoverished state in the 80s in Gore St Fitzroy. I never ventured into Collingwood all that often back then- or since actually. Perhaps I should make some detours next time. And maybe by then I’ll have the theme song out of my head too. But I’m sure you’re too young to understand.

    That must be the most amazing brunch place in the world, the food is gorgeous! My eyeballs nearly fell out of my head when I saw that hotcakes dish. Pistachio nougat?!

  16. Hannah

    Ah, nothing compares to a brunch with friends… Except for a brunch that you didn’t have to cook yourself! Quite jealous, as there are no brunch places at all near me, let alone vegan brunch spots. Just me and a lonely waffle iron… But I can dream! Great pictures. 🙂

  17. Emma

    Oh wow holy crap the hotcakes dish looks good. Iced pistachio nougat, wowwowowowowowwow I’m hungry and this post makes me happy. But hungry. But happy! I’m even eating breakfast while writing this, and yet my hunger is growing exponentially. Or perhaps curvilinear-ly. Yikes.

    The pineapple whatever thing looks good, as does the pork belly. Who doesn’t love a good belly of pork every now and then? In summary, I wish Wallace and Gromit would pay me a visit:)

  18. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    What a brunch! I think your brother[‘s dish] is the tastiest-sounding part 😉 Do tell, though: ARE you ever going to share the nose-breaking tale?
    Can’t wait to see these 10 desserts…!

  19. whisperinggums

    Great food … particularly when you are writing from Newman WA where things are a little more basic. I do hope Eagle’s nose recovered promptly but I’m sure having a moon nearby must have helped.

  20. chocolatesuze

    omgs the ricotta hotcakes look awesome!

  21. Errign

    All of that food looks unreal. YUM! 🙂

  22. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    The salad looks fantastic! It’s definitely too long since I’ve had fresh figs for the last time!

    Btw: Chocolate is on its way to you … 😀

  23. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Love Proud Mary – their coffees are awesome! I’ve only been there once though. I’d have ordered what you ordered, even though the I have to admit that the pancakes look too good to resist!

  24. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    There were so many things I wanted to comment on in this post, but the broken nose issue pushed them all aside! I will await the explanation with interest!

    On the food side of things, your salad and your brother’s pancakes both look delicious. As does your coffee. I really love Melbourne coffee…the fact that it is cheaper than in Perth is an added insult really.

  25. sophia

    Holy cow. I’ve never heard of Proud Mary, but this is one place I would travel across the continent for!! Ricotta hotcakes? Pork belly sandwich? Crispy hash cakes?! I’m sooo drooling right now! As much as I love figs, I’m fumbled that you can order a salad in this place. But I see you’re also the smart one, preserving stomach space to steal bites from your brother…;)

    Btw, what for god’s sake is pistachio nougat?! PLEASE find the recipe for that if possible!

  26. Priyanka

    I have yet to try fresh figs. Those hot cakes are making me hungry and its 2am in the morning 🙂

  27. leaf (the indolent cook)

    The food looks great! I still haven’t been to Proud Mary yet…

  28. Agnes

    Hmm I see a bunny in your future.

  29. Christine (Merf)

    Australia has better food than the U.S. Wah.

    […] It was the trip where I had Starbucks, rooftop beers, and Lord of the Fries on Friday night, a Proud Mary brunch of brilliance on Saturday morning, and then eleven different desserts on Saturday night followed by partying […]
