Here’s a list of some things you can expect at Miss Marmalade of Melbourne: house baked muffins, fresh juices, wagyu beef burgers, soft shell crab sliders, ricotta hotcakes, exceptional coffee. That list, we assure you, could be much longer, but it’s best if some things are kept as a surprise. You’ll find Miss Marmalade on Union Street in Brunswick, where a charming ambience awaits – the kind that makes you want to sit and relax and appreciate all the sounds and smells of a classic cafe. Melbourne isn’t short of great cafes, we know, but Miss Marmalade is better than most.
The Union Street exterior of Miss Marmalade is appealing and understated with a modest smattering of tables and some very pretty flowers. All this means it’s very clear you’re onto a winner before you’ve even stepped through the door. Once you are through the door, however, things get even better. Lots of exposed brick, dark wood, nice lighting and cups and saucers knocking against one another to give those proper cafe sounds. With all of that, mind it’s no surprise that we think Brunswick and indeed all of Melbourne are lucky to have Miss Marmalade.
Open for breakfast as well as lunch, the Miss Marmalade menu is packed with Australian cafe classics. Go light with banana and cinnamon bread, eggs however you like ‘em, or some classic smashed avo. Or go slightly more gourmet with grilled asparagus and smoked salmon, a quinoa salad or the Miss Marmalade fish of the day. Brunswick locals will be pleased to hear that many of these options are vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free, and Miss Marmalade of Melbourne even offers a cute little kid's menu. Reserve a table at this fantastic cafe now and get involved.
We sat out the back, as we had 4 kids with us. Staff and food amazing. Awesome to be able to catch up whilst the kids were entertained in the kids area.
Very friendly spot with capacity to cater for group of 8 wanting to spend long time nattering. Happy to split the bill that is always handy
Tasty options with generous serves. Very busy on the weekends. Love the eggs how you like them, with bacon, holandaise and spinach. Good coffee too.
