Melbourne's vibrant music scene and coffee culture harmoniously blend together at a light-filled cafe nestled beside Albert Park, Leaps and Bounds Café.

Named in honour of the Paul Kelly song, this delightful venue is located in the same spot that once housed Café No 84. The cafe retains its heritage exterior but inside you'll be greeted with a light-filled Scandi-style space kitted out with baby blue posters of iconic artists like Freddie Mercury and Beyoncé, speckled crockery, light wooden tables, blue-grey tiles and polished concrete floors.

The menu strikes a chord with brunch classics alongside dishes with a Leaps and Bounds twist, like the Mustang Potato — a surprising medley of crushed spuds, red peppercorn, edamame, and spiced labneh. Other options include the spiced chilli scramble, roasted cauliflower salata, Turkish eggs, bacon benny and French toast, not to mention all the lunch plates available.

It's an ideal brunch spot conveniently located around the corner from Albert Park and only a few streets away from Port Melbourne Beach, perfect for catching up with friends over the weekend.
