Friendly staff, great food, and a vibrant atmosphere in the heart of Camberwell – what’s not to love? The Legacy brunch menu is chock-full of healthy options at reasonable prices.

Bursting with both colour and flavour, it’s hard to go past the ‘gram-worthy acai bowl. Or for a quick and delicious start to the day, grab one of Legacy’s famous superfood smoothies.

Heritage Wall

One of Camberwell’s favourite brunch spots, the minimalist Heritage Wall serves up a tantalising brunch menu infused with Middle Eastern flair.

Spice up your Instagram feed by ordering either the Nutella French toast, acai bowl, or coconut chia pudding — besides their stunning aesthetic, they’re all impressively tasty.

Throw in a patterned barista-made latte to complete the look (and get that much-needed energy kick).

My Other Brother

With an exciting menu based on superfoods and sustainable ingredients, My Other Brother instantaneously became a buzzing Camberwell favourite after setting up shop in 2013.

The Nutella Hong Kong waffles are a sweet tooth’s fantasy and a photographer’s dream; the smashed kabocha pumpkin offers a colourful twist on a typical brunch dish; and the raspberry blood orange chia pudding is about as Instagram-worthy as they come.

Collective Espresso

Whether you’re nursing a headache from Saturday night or just need that essential morning pick-me-up before work, Collective Espresso has got you covered.

Besides its barista-made coffee menu, this Camberwell brunch haunt also sports a diverse, colourful, and mouth-watering menu.

Light up the ‘gram with a taco bowl, Belgian waffles, or a crowd favourite: the berry good smoothie bowl.

Notably, Collective Espresso was rated as the best Camberwell cafe in 2019 (according to Zomato).


This small yet uber-popular Camberwell brunch spot dishes up traditional Aussie brunch plates with a unique Thai twist.

Beloved dishes at Chapter21 include the Pandan crepe, which comes with a hefty side of fresh fruit, and the aesthetically delightful avocado flowers.

To capture an Instagram shot that truly stands out, opt for a green matcha latte to wash it all down.

Light Years Cafe

Take one bite of the bubble waffles at Light Years and you’ll see why this Camberwell gem deserves the title of TimeOut’s Best Cafe (2018).

This locale, like many of its neighbours, offers a range of gluten-free and vegan options to complement the always-evolving main menu.

Make sure to sample the bircher muesli with edible flowers, or the smashed avo with pomegranate — both plates look as good as they taste.
