It’s fair to say there are few things we Melbounians love more than brunch.

It’s that time of the week where we can enjoy everything from pancakes to a smashed avocado even after midday, and if you throw in a delicious cocktail after the initial coffee boost – well then that’s just fabulous!

This and more is what you can find when Monti, a lovely, relaxed cafe in the heart of Albert Park, where the food is only matched by the incredible ambiance and attentiveness of its wonderful staff.

Just a few steps from St Vincent Gardens in Albert Park is a local favourite, Monti Food, and Wine – specialising in serving modern Australian food with a Mediterranean influence. Better known as the destination that ticks all the boxes for a great location, vibrant food, an assortment of wines, refreshing cocktails, and irresistible coffee – perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and beyond.

Monti is driven by vibrant, creative minds whose commitment is based on ensuring customers leave with an outstanding, memorable experience.

The menu blends an assortment of standout dishes designed and prepared by Chef Will, which can be best described as “Vibrant, light and tasty – there’s something for everybody.” says owner Eric Yazici.

Must-tries include the Ricotta Hotcakes (best hotcakes I’ve had in a long time!), Smoked Ocean Trout, and Slow Roasted Spiced Lamb Shoulder.

Monti also offers an array of Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten-Free options on the menu.

Whether you fancy a seated spot outside on the iconic Montague Street, on the classic terrace, or inside amongst the relaxing turquoise interior accents – Monti sure offers a comfortable environment to sit back, relax and enjoy great food, drinks, and company.

But it doesn’t stop there!
