Always queues for days at the ever popular Five Oars, and no surprise since the vibes here scream Melbourne in both the interior design as well as the food.
The coffee here is good, as is the brunch-centric fare usually, but maybe we ordered the wrong dish, as I couldn’t quite shake the feeling of disappointment with the greasy rosti and viscid mushroom cream sauce. The saving grace was the slab of thick-cut bacon, but because all the ingredients were rich, it really needed at least one component with more acid to cut through the heaviness.
Hot tip - take a photo of the queue system QR code out front so you can scan it beforehand in the future instead of having to loiter at the entrance like a chump).

Taste: 3/5
