The Big Breakfast Festival

Melbourne's finest food trucks turn their attention to breakfast and brunch fare.

If there was ever any doubt that breakfast is the best meal of the day, just consider the foods on offer. Whether you're an eggs and bacon, smashed avo on toast, stack of pancakes or humble cereal fiend, these first-up meals all have one thing in common: you'd like to eat them morning, noon and night — and, you have.

Over the weekend of August 11 to 13, you can devour definitely your favourite early morning nosh for lunch and dinner at The Food Truck Park. In fact, the Preston meals-on-wheels hub isn't serving anything else. For three days only — and for the first time, too — Melbourne's finest mobile eateries will only be whipping up breakfast and brunch fare.

Yep, it's a Big Breakfast Festival all right. Given the menu, you'd best show up with a big appetite to match. There'll be from bacon sandwiches, falafel hot dogs and gooey, cheesy toasties,  plus French toast, scrolls and pastries, and waffles. Or, grab some bircher muesli, an acai bowl and avo fries — or brekkie burgers, chilli beef gozleme and Punjabi paneer masala. With the fest open from 5pm to 10pm on Friday, 12pm to 10pm on Saturday and 12pm to 9pm on Sunday, going back more than once is understandable.
