Sunday brunch is my favourite meal. Looking out for inventive brunch dishes not your usual eggs benedict / avocado toast. I can make that myself!!

Located above Common Man Coffee Roasters, Grounded by CMCR occupies the leafy alfresco area of Yoga Movement's newest studio in Robertson Quay. Chill out in the relaxed space with coffee from CMCR and refuel with one of the many wholesome (but substantial) eats on the menu. Meals are guilt-free with options like the GF Redemption Bowl ($17), a vegetarian, grain-free combination of all things healthy like roasted veggies, nuts, seeds and a tahini drizzle; as well as the Balance Burger ($17), which is more like a brioche bun sandwich holding together folded organic eggs, streaky bacon, kale and a sriracha mayo. Worked super hard in yoga? Treat yourself to a Beetroot Chocolate Brownie ($8) after!
Avg price: $20 per person

We went to Curious Palette today because Artichoke was closed for Raya holiday. Not too bad I must say! Good value for money, great ambience, somewhat creative menu and decently executed food. Scotch egg (in picture) was okay, not a huge standout for flavour. But their sweet potato fries omg. Crunchy, fluffy, salty and insanely addictive. SO GOOD!!! I would go back for just their fries. Order it!!! You won't regret it.

Been meaning to try Artichoke since its been trending on Burple and I was not disappointed. This is one of the best eggs shakshuka I've had and I cook this dish regularly at home too. Tomato sauce was thick, rich, aromatic and well spiced with generous chunks of tender lamb shoulder. Topped with perfectly baked eggs with runny yolks and warm pita bread. I wanted to steal the recipe, it was that good!! Overall a standout menu and great ambience although slightly more pricey (~ $30 p/person), it's money well spent for the quality of food, generous portions, nice relaxed setting and good service. Good for brunch with friends. They also have large tables you can book for big groups too. Will return!

On the positives, one of those upcoming hipster style cafes, great setting, good coffee and very reasonably priced (~25 p/person). Negatives - having to order and pay at the counter. This is just very unsophisticated (come on guys, at least take orders at table!). Food was good but could be better; the signature scrambled eggs is so instagramable but wasn't as creamy or flavourful as it looks!! You only get the table for 90 mins due to long queue so can feel rushed if catching up with a group of friends. Overall experience was mixed.
