Ummm…. hello. What’s not to love about bottomless mimosas for $30pp!? Shut up and take our money.

“Weekends done right”, runs the slogan and we reckon the Dead Ringer crew’s spot on. Menu highlights include house-made focaccia, an Aussie cheese plate, cured ocean trout, ricotta tarts, and even chocolate fondant and sticky date for the sweet-tooths among us. Yes please!

Where: Dead Ringer, 413 Bourke Street, Surry Hills

All hail the Fried Chicken Gods. After hosting a series of pop-up events in Sydney while the harbour side precinct was still under construction, people couldn’t get enough of Belles Hot Chicken so the team decided to set up shop permanently in 2016.

Chicken waffles and bottomless Bloody Marys on weekends? We’re sold.

Where: Belles Hot Chicken, 5/33 Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo

#3 Darlo Country Club

We can all agree “brunch” is just another word for “socially acceptable day drinking”, and Darlo Country Club‘s kicking it up a notch. A set brunch menu will have you and your mates chowing down on goodies like chia pudding, bread baskets, and scrambled eggs.

To wash it all down? Think Bellinis and French champagne and you’ve got the idea.

Where: Darlo Country Club, 235 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst

#4 Paper Bird

Brought to us by the same legends behind Moon Park, Paper Bird‘s brunch offering is next level. However be warned: this isn’t your typical pasties and champs lineup. Inspired by East Asian cuisine, the brunch menu is home to a slew of dishes that are guaranteed to bring extra pop and crunch to your morning.

Our picks include the prawn toast and cabbage sandwich, shallot pancakes, and the kimchi toastie. Get on this!

Where: 46a Macleay Street, Potts Point

If you’re feeling a bit fancy pants, Saint Peter‘s got all your brunch needs covered. From oysters and spanner crab to salt and vinegar onion rings, this menu’s been designed for the serious brunch connoisseur.

The best part? There’s a dessert lineup to wow your pants off. Lemon tart: tick. Chocolate slice: tick. Cheddar and blue cheese: tick.

Get it down your pie hole!
