Hofbräuhaus, Melbourne

Hofbrauhaus, known for their German dinners, beers and dancing in the evening, you would never have thought to have brunch here right? Well good news is they’ve opened their doors for brunch now.

We got a hot chocolate to start off the day and it wasn’t as chocolate-y as I was use to. It tasted more like milk with a dash of chocolate flavour in it which was a shame.

Heisse Schokolade – $4.50

Ms Chanel loves a little bit of everything and he eyes lit up when she saw the traditional breakfast. We got a board for one to share and it was filled with cured meats, cheese and a boiled egg. It was a great selection and it was cheesified.

I love a good poached egg for brunch so when I saw the eggs benedict on the menu, I knew we had to get it PRONTO! The eggs were cooked perfectly and oozed out a golden goodnes. The bavarian bretzel knodel (dumpling) was quite dense but it worked quite well with the dish. The overall dish did not feel heavy at all and it’s definitely a recommended dish!

To end our brunch date we got the shredded pancakes because hey, who doesn’t love pancakes? When this dish came out, it smelt oh so good, like walking into a bakery. Sprinkled with berries, whipped cream, jam and of course nutella, it’s a sweet tooth’s dream. The pancakes were a touch dense and a bit on the dry side. The berries were really fresh and the whipped cream was oh so light and fluffy. It needed something like maple syrup or something to blend it all together.

The staff are so attentive and so friendly and the eggs benedict and the breakfast board was so frigging good. There’s a huge range of things you can expect from brunch here and I’ll be back to check out the rest of the menu.
