We’re out of lockdown!
This year has been a rollercoaster to say the least, and while most of us have been able to enjoy the new found freedom that we seem to have, many businesses haven’t fared as well.
It’s been a tough year for nearly all Australian businesses and many have been forced to close for good. It’s a sad reality, however there’s something we can all do to help.
As a security company, we’re doing our best to keep businesses safe, sound and secure, but there’s something we can all do individually to help them.
If you’re like us and love food, you’ve already enjoyed a brunch at your favourite cafe, but there’s so much more to explore! We’ve listed our 4 favourite eateries to support out of lockdown and we highly encourage you to check them out. See below:
Our good friends at The George On Collins are a New York style basement bar in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD (right opposite our office!), and offer breakfast all the way to late night dinner and cocktails. Often housing late-night DJs, they are the perfect destination for a Friday night knock-offs.
With their doors open again, we encourage you if you haven’t already to book a table at The George on Collins to experience their incredibly unique bar and restaurant.
You may even catch a glimpse of their chef Khanh Ong who you may have seen on Masterchef a few years ago!
With summer well and truly on its way, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy the lovely local beaches Melbourne has to offer.
Why not head down to Brighton beach and while you’re there, drop by The Deck Brighton for your morning coffee or a delightful lunch?
These guys have an incredible all-day breakfast menu and an extensive lunch menu that anyone will enjoy, plus if you’re in need of those Christmas party celebrations, they even have private function rooms available.
Their food is not the only thing that’s great… As the name suggests, their outdoor dining deck is just beautiful; allowing you to enjoy your eggs benedict and strong soy latte all while getting a few rays of sunshine.
Imagine this… a well-seasoned, slow-cooked and juicy American BBQ in the heart of Melbourne. Well… you don’t necessarily need to imagine because Fancy Hanks (smack bang in the middle of Bourke Street) has you covered!
Their slow-cooked free-range meats (which they locally source from Gippsland) take you on a journey to the southern states of the USA and are so tender that they almost melt in your mouth! Cooked in their custom smokers for up to 22 hours, they offer an American experience in Australia.
It doesn’t just stop at the food either. Their bar-style restaurant always has a positive atmosphere and often has live music or a DJ playing on their rooftop which is great for after-work drinks or a Saturday night with friends.
Last on our list is a boutique cafe located south of the city in the trendy suburb of Prahran.
Specialising in fine food, speciality coffee, and a range of great brunches, Middletown in Prahran is where they claim that their spectacular food and classic flavours meet modern technique.
They pay attention to every detail in their food and beverages (particularly their coffee) and if you don’t believe us, we recommend trying them out yourself (or even just check their Instagram page)!
With an emphasis on fine seasonal produce, Middletown brings you a pleasant dining experience with sophistication.
With so many amazing cafes and restaurants opening their doors back up, it was hard to pick our favourites, however these 4 eateries are amongst the best. Even if it’s not one of our top picks, enjoy the summer, get out of the house and reward yourself for enduring everything 2020 has thrown at us!
