Known for their amazing coffee, the breakfast and lunch menu here is also sure to please.

Tastefully designed using a beautiful blend of wood, rattan, leather and metal, Common Man is a great spot for those who want to stay a little bit longer and enjoy the good vibes.

I do really love the coffee here and Common Man pride themselves with making a damn good brew. My pick is their Cold Brew, which has hints of orange rind, making this the perfect pick me up.

While the menu may be on the pricier side, you’ll find the portions extremely generous. The Common Man Fluffy Pancakes is my pick of the bunch and comes served with caramelised bananas, a salted caramel sauce with a nutty crumble and berry coulis.

The Common Man Veggie Wonderland and Full Breakfast options are fantastic if you are super duper hungry.

Picture an atrium filled with greenery, a greenhouse like setting, and that’s what you get at Botanica + Co. Popular most days of the week, but weekend brunch is where it’s at. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations for brunch, and it does get quite busy for weekend brunch so be prepared to wait.

For brunch you’ll get to enjoy the daily favourites on the menu such as the Halibut Fish & Chips, but if you are wanting something more ‘brunch-y’ try the Pancakes with Crispy Fried Chicken or the Shakshuka.

For those with a sweet tooth, the Banana French Toast is a clear winner in my books – fresh Brioche dipped in custard and then cooked to perfection before drizzling a generous amount of honey and nuts.

And if you’re into the more savoury, the Shakshuka is my pick – eggs and feta baked in a roasted pepper stew then served is house-baked bread.
