Taking up a prime position down Brunswick’s Victoria Street between the Reaburn Reserve, Brunswick Park and Clifton Park, Neuelements Cafe Bar keeps Melbourne’s cafe set happy seven days a week from dawn until late at night with superlative coffee and cafe fare. Breakfast begins at 7am and ends at a generous 5pm, keeping locals in classic eggs benny and more outre offerings, while lunch and dinner options continue to tread the line between modern Australian and international cuisine. Busy at peak times, it’s best to book.
What would Melbourne be without its hallowed all-day breakfasts? Neuelements Cafe Bar does the city proud and Brunswick locals prouder with an all-day breakfast that does indeed go all day and a menu packed with the classics and more. Head to Neuelements slick Victoria Street premises and order up old faves like eggs any way (and Benedict), big veggie and meaty breakfasts, or go exotic with the Colombian-style baked eggs and chorizo with tomato and onion sauce.
As the day progresses, Neuelements Cafe Bar whips out fantastic Italian pasta dishes like classic Bolognese or carbonara with your choice of spaghetti, tagliatelli, rigatoni, gnocchi or even rice – with gluten-free options also available. Generous burgers are a popular option, with our recommendations being the barramundi and the Angus beef burgers. A real draw to this Brunswick cafe is the availability of steamed or fried dumplings – an unusual proposition for a Melbourne cafe – with pork and cabbage, chicken and prawn, beef and onion, pork, prawn and chives, or vegetable dumplings all on offer.
