The menu at our beloved Sakley’s features an all-day-breakfast with all-the-frills—sour cream, chorizo, bacon, sausage and more bacon—and we love it. We have this place bookmarked for all our cheat days, mainly because their portions are huge.

Try the St Claire’s cheddar cheese omelette with crispy bacon and pork franks…or anything off the menu, really; it’s all amazing.

Timings: 11.30am – 12pm

The All American Diner

An age-old favourite amongst Dilliwallas the American Diner continues to be frequented for its breakfast menu. The signature breakfast dishes laden with stacks of pancakes, eggs, sausages, baked beans, grilled tomatoes and fresh breads hit the sweet spot every time.

A health café tucked away in GK1, M Block, Getafix knows how to do breakfast. Their all-day breakfast menu has French toast and pancakes for the sweet tooth, baked beans and a cottage cheese roll, a bunch of sides {you have to try their sausages!}, and omelettes.

We particularly like the sound of their Masala Omlette, with tomatoes, capsicum and chillies. We’ve also previously really enjoyed their scrambled eggs, and Lime Pie for dessert.

As the name suggests, Eggspectation is an egg lover’s paradise. Indulge in dishes like the Egg-chilada, the Egg-frittatta, and the Egg-streme, amongst others.

If you’re not up for the excitement, you can always opt for the straightforward omelettes with a number of fillings like spinach, Swiss cheese, bacon etc. Fresh juice from the juice bar keeps you energised. Eggspectation recommends you add rum to these for an extra brekkie kick. We agree.
