Brunch at Squisito Bar in QV

Sometimes when we go out to eat, we don’t have a plan for where to go so we just walk around aimlessly. Squisito Bar is one of those places that you’re likely to come across when you’re wandering around the city, because of its convenient location in the QV precinct. Despite being called a “bar” it’s actually only open ’til late on Saturdays; on weekdays it’s a brunch cafe, with the breakfast/brunch menu available from 7am-2:30pm and the lunch menu from 11am-2:30pm.

The service we received at Squisito was mixed; the waitress who served us wasn’t warm/friendly, but she was polite. In contrast the woman who helped us at the cash register was very friendly. The menu had many dishes to choose from including some pretty tasty sounding lunch options, but we ended up ordering from the brunch menu because we are brunch addicts.

Brunch at Operator25

Operator25 is just a couple of blocks away from Melbourne Central, in a quiet street off La Trobe Street. They serve mostly brunch food, as well as a few lunch items which cost more. We stuck to the brunch menu but a few people near us ordered the pulled pork burger, and it looked tasty enough that it might be worth the $20 price.
