With no shortage of breakfast options on Carlisle Street in Balaclava, it’s important that places like Finn exist, reminding us that brunch in Melbourne is more than just your standard eggs benny or smashed avo experience. Sitting opposite the St Kilda Town Hall, Finn is one of the newer brunching establishments in an already saturated street of breakfast options. The vibe is effortlessly cool, with the Scandinavian influenced menu being carried through to the white-washed minimalist décor and hipster grandma chic touches.

Solo diners are made to feel welcome with spaces at a communal table or a bench style bar to perch on as you get reacquainted with one’s self. If you forgot your favourite book at home and don’t wish to stare at the screen of your smart phone, they have a substantial collection of newspapers and magazines to keep you company.

The menu offers a range of creative breakfast options with a Nordic flare such as ‘soft boiled eggs with asparagus soldiers, DIY hollandaise and jalapeno cheese crumb’ and ‘wild mushroom omelette with taleggio cheese, truffle oil, rye crisp and chickpea shoots’. The real winner on the menu, and the feature of many Instagram posts, is their Breakfast Board, featuring an array of fresh ingredients (smoked salmon, boiled eggs, cornichons, beetroot hummus, duck rillette + granola and with rhubarb compote) along with a toasted baguette drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. The board offers the perfect weekend grazing feast, either as a generous serve for one or a shared lighter option for two.

Lunch options offer items for the gym-junkie looking for their super food fix (quinoa salad with mixed nuts, seeds and beetroot hummus), or something a little heartier such as a Reuben sandwich or wild mushroom ragout with baked polenta. Either way, we’re pretty sure you can’t go wrong.

When paying the bill, it’s pretty hard to ignore the cabinet of in-house baked sweets and pastries, which make the perfect take away treat for anyone who missed out on brunch (if that’s any consolation).
