Maverick is the new contemporary brunch venture from brother-sister duo Adam and Elisa Mariani, the same brains behind Richmond local favourite Mayday Coffee & Food. A playful space filled with deep navy accents and pale pink terrazzo, their latest venue is nestled within the sleek new 80 Collins Street precinct.

Settle into a booth or perch at the central communal table to enjoy pastries from Richmond's Penny for Pound and speciality coffee by Axil. From the kitchen comes a seasonal menu of creative brunch fare, starring updated classics alongside familiar favourites.

Melbourne mornings are made far more palatable with the likes of thick-cut rye topped with mushrooms, hazelnuts and smoked curd ($17), or the house-made pastrami benedict featuring lashings of bearnaise sauce atop potato hash ($19.50). A herb-roasted chicken roll comes loaded with avocado and buttermilk dressing ($17), the chilli scrambled eggs are infused with three types of cheese ($19), and the answer to that sweet tooth craving lies in the waffles, crowned with fresh strawberries and double cream ($18).

Maverick, CBD

Looking for something a little stronger than coffee with your lunch? Maverick's daytime-friendly drinks list extends to a considered handful of Aussie wines, local tinnies and classic cocktails, martini included. Dishes and drinks are available from 7am.
