We were looking forward to Melbourne brunch and weren’t disappointed with Higher Ground. The menu was very inventive, though it was hard to choose something that didn’t sound too daring. All our meals were filling, delicious and exciting. Tip though: order the hot cake for the whole table to share cause it’s massive!!
Only sour note was being told to “wait outside” very, very rudely by the woman seating people. I’ve never known such rudeness in hospitality. Bouncers treat patrons better than this woman treated her customers.
However, service improved when we were served by a very lovely woman who helped us make our choices.

Went for Bfast as I was staying at IBIS next door, upon arriving on my own I was shown to the bar are where single people are seated. No selecting your own table here. Service was quick and professional scrambled eggs were good but coffee was a bit ordinary for me. Decor is upmarket and a very go refit of an old building. My bill was $15 for coffee and scrambled eggs. I would like to have lunch or dinner there to fully appreciate the menu and ambience.

This restaurant has a brunch/lunchtime class to it with a powerful metropolitan feel. I had a steak, and it was great. The environment feels wonderful. It's a reasonable price for what you're ordering, and it's in a nice location.

Had the most amazing breakfast here on the morning of the Melbourne Ccup race meeting.The place was buzzing at 8am. The menu was stupendous I had the Eggs Benedict, unlike any Eggs Benidict I have ever tasted - scrumptious. Very helpful and friendly staff and unusual decor. A must to visit when in Melbourne.
