There’s no better way to spend a weekend with friends than over eggs and mimosas – swapping coffee for wine is totally acceptable when it’s part of a bottomless brunch deal, right? Right! The boozy brunch phenomenon – originally hailed from those sassy New Yorkers – has had worldwide success, and is now the preferred weekend meal of many Sydney-siders. Hot on the trend, many eating establishments in the city have stepped it up a notch and now offer that all-important accompaniment of bubbles with their weekend brunch menu. So whether you’re curing a hangover, or looking to get dressed up with the girls and kick-start your weekend in style, we’ve handpicked the best bottomless brunch hotspots down under…
The touristy one: perfect for taking in the beautiful views of one of the world’s most famous beaches. Great for a date, besties birthday or entertaining the family!
The most iconic location in Sydney needs an iconic brunch spot and Icebergs Dining Room and Bar doesn’t disappoint. Their boozy brunch offering is on a Sunday and costs $80 for the full prosecco-flowing shebang. With a selection of tasty pastries, fresh fruit, perfectly cooked eggs and smoked salmon, you’ll be enjoying the menu just as much as the view. There’s also a very high chance of some super hot surfers interrupting that view too. Fiiiiine by us!

The cool one: a great excuse to get a dressed up with the girls! It’s instagrammable as hell and near plenty of other bars to continue the fun in after. Or, stay! There’s 3 floors and some great wines on offer.
Set in the heart of Darlinghurst, this newly renovated pub offers a terrace dining experience with city views and a super chic tropical vibe, making The East Village one cool bottomless brunch destination. The ‘Bloody Mary Buffet’ is from $40 and lasts for just under 2 hours, that’s plenty of time to enjoy the food, booze and probably the best Bloody Mary you’ve ever tasted!
The East Village
234 Palmer Street, Darlingurst, 2010 (04) 31 622 944, Weekends from 11am
The quirky one: not an egg in sight! Something a little different than your typical smashed avo style brunch. Take anyone! Just warn them about the no eggs rule.
Fancy adding an edge of creativeness to your boozy brunch? Then this is the place to be. This unique brunch menu costs $69 and goes against the grain as you’ll not spot a single avo on toast or egg option on the menu. Instead, you’ll devour fluffy omelettes, housemade savoury tarts and lots of fresh seafood – YUM. We love their break-the-brunch-rule attitude and as long as they still include the mimosas, that’s fine by us!
413 Bourke Street, Surry Hills 2010, (02) 9331 3560, Weekends from 11am
