Who put salt in the sugar bowl? Who put a real life toad in the hole? Who put shampoo in Grandma’s tea? My Brother. So sang Terry Scott on the 1962 classic record, and at Annoying Brother on Nicholson Street in Melbourne’s Fitzroy North, they’re taking the energy of that sibling rivalry and applying to their wares. Annoying Brother offer one of the finest coffee shops in Melbourne, and when you pay them a visit, it’s pretty easy to see why they are held in such high regard. Their joe is superlative, and their breakfast menu – smashed avo and feta, eggs any way, porridge and pancakes, breakfast burritos, muesli and even a house version of the McMuffin – is a sight to behold. Add a strong lunch game, with sandwiches, salads and soups and you’re well on your way to a proper feed at Annoying Brother. Pay their pastry shop a visit on Nicholson Street in Fitzroy North – Rushall station is your best bet – and get ready for a Melbourne coffee to remember: book ahead, as they do fill up.
