The most important meal of the day...

Must visit breakfast spots on James Street

We are utterly spoiled for choice when it comes to breakfast haunts and cafes on James Street. Whether you’re partial to a morning Acai Bowl or can’t pass up a brekky burger, scroll down to find out the best cafes and restaurants to enjoy the most important meal of the day.


Harveys Bar + Bistro: 

Breakfast at Harveys Bar + Bistro never fails to impress. With a street-side position under the iconic fig trees, dining at Harveys is a must. Catering to all tastes, you will have a tough time choosing between dishes on the breakfast menu. We’re obsessed with the potato and feta roesti, creamed sweet corn, poached egg and herb salsa – it is delicious!


Jocelyn’s Provisions:

A Jocelyn’s Provisions croissant paired with a morning coffee are what sweet pasty dreams are made of. When you’re next feeling like this classic breakfast combo don’t forget to pick up one of their signature cakes for later on in the day… Or to enjoy straight after.


King Arthur Cafe: 

With food fit for a king, breakfast at King Arthur Cafe is an all-day affair. Having recently launched their new all-day breakfast menu, King Arthur Cafe has become a neighboorhood favourite with a host of regular diners every morning. Word on the street is that the Avocado Plate with house harrisa garlic bread, avocado, smoked goats milk labne and picked cauliflower is a must.



A smoothie a day keeps a doctor away, right? If so, a trip to Quench in the morning is what the doctor ordered. Start your day with a Breakfast Smoothie, or if you’re feeling fruity a Mangolicious Smoothie – perfect for those who want breakfast on the go.


Spoon Deli Cafe:

Wake up tomorrow with a Wake Me Up Burger at Spoon Deli Cafe. Located in the James Street Markets, Spoon Deli Cafe cater to all tastes, with a wide selection of options bound to impress even the pickiest of eaters.


Pineapple Express:

If you’re usually rushed in the morning yet want to enjoy something super tasty and healthy, pop by Pineapple Express and pick up a Acai Smoothie Bowl. Each bowl is packed with lot’s of nutrients to keep you energised all day. Next time you’re at Pineapple Express try the Candy Crush Bowl with watermelon, acai, pineapple, mango, lime juice, topped with twice baked granola, strawberries, watermelon and organic lollies – it will satisfy any fitness fanatic.



Tucked away in the leafy Gerard’s laneway, Cantinho is a family run cafe with a meditation influence. If you’re partial to a big breakfast, the Cantinho Brekky is right down your alley with bacon, eggs your way, cherry tomatoes, haloumi and sourdough. While you’re at Cantinho don’t forget to pick up one of Aunty Tina’s Greek Biscuits and Aunty Helen’s home-baked Baklava – yum!
