More Info

A popular brunch location, be sure to get in early to avoid disappointment.

The Manchester Press displays so much of what forms Melbourne’s urban culture – an intense passion for coffee paired with a scaled back, simplistic café experience. The café feels like an much-loved and abused mess hall, its raw appearance populated by quirky artistic pieces such as a giant bowling pin, or a robot astronaut behind the counter.

The menu is thankfully more straightforward – consisting nearly entirely of a range of delicious bagels topped with anything from traditional avocado and smoked salmon to pesto, cherry, rocket and capsicum. It’s the perfect filler for breakfast or lunch that won’t break the bank. If you’re feeling particularly devious you can opt for a decadent fruit and nut bagel topped with mixed berry mascarpone and smashed pistachio.

Be aware that there may be a wait. Just take the chalk and write your name down on the wall outside to save your place in the queue. Or better still, ask for a basketball and spend the time shooting hoops.

Better yet, every Wednesday Manchester Press gets a drop off from the lads at Doughboys Donuts!
