Brunch in Melbourne by the Two Fat Monks will change your weekends

When thinking of something to do on a Sunday in Melbourne, there is nothing better than a great meal in a really cool space, with fantastic cocktails thrown in.

For some, the usual suspects would be in place like South Yarra, Richmond, Collingwood and even a bit of a hunt through the city but if you’re up for a little adventure out of town – it’s not that far – you can’t go past the recently updated Two Fat Monks restaurant.

A little hidden gem opposite the station in Fairfield, this restaurant doesn’t just serve all the classic favourites, it serves so much more and with an unexpected finesse.

With the space being designed by Urban Workroom, the aesthetic in the restaurant is something you would expect of inner city restaurants, with the industrial warehouse setting, exposed brick walls and polished concrete floors really adding comfort to the dining experience.

Although Two Fat Monks has been in business since December last year, they have only recently extended their hours to dinner on Friday and Saturday.

With the dining extension came the new in-house bakery, adding delicious cakes and petits-fours to the extensive menu of the classic all-day breakfast items but incredible lunch and dinner menu items like 12 hour braised lamb shoulder and the confit pork belly.

Admittedly, a true highlight of the meal was indeed the cocktails that were served to us; the ‘Goldentini’ was one of the best espresso martini with the little chai twist and the Pisco Sour was super refreshing and went down so well with our menu choices.

The fantastic thing about Two Fat Monks is they are open to hire for private functions and events, offering their stylish dining space with their delicious meals for those wanting the Fat Monks all to themselves.

Two Fat Monks is located at 254–256 Wingrove St, Fairfield, Victoria 3078, and open MondaySunday from 7:30am until 3pm. FridaySaturday open until 9pm.
