Beggs & Acon
This cheery southside eatery is one big ode to your fave breakfast duo — bacon and egg doughnuts, included.
Few pairs have earned themselves quite the same icon status as the humble duo of bacon and eggs. And it's this classic partnership that's the star of the show at Prahran pop-up-turned-permanent brunch destination Beggs & Acon.
This playfully named venue from the Mr Miyagi crew is celebrating breakfast foods both classic and creative, across a simple and sustainably focused menu you'll be happy to hit at any time of day. A fast cult favourite, the signature brekkie roll features scrambled eggs, bacon, hollandaise and chilli jam, loaded into a fluffy white roll ($12.50) or even loaded into warm flatbread ($12.50). Feeling fancy? Get your egg and bacon fix in the form of two cheesy empanadas ($14), or infused into a Bistro Morgan doughnut ($12.50).
Later, lunchtime calls for the likes of a sourdough BLT finished with bacon jam and a fried egg ($14.50), and panko-crumbed eggplant sangas dressed with pickled chilli mayo ($14.50). And, while it's tempting to go nuts on the house-made add-ons — think, caramelised onions, crisp hash browns and some of that spicy bacon jam — just be sure to save room for a sweet finale.
Revamping another breakfast classic is the peanut butter and jelly french toast, which is coated in cornflakes, oozing from the middle and teamed with a vanilla yoghurt sauce ($7).
