The early bird gets the… lobster omelette and a glass of champers.

If the benefits of waking up at sunrise (like better sleep, less stress) aren't enough to entice you to set an early alarm, perhaps Shangri-La Sydney's opulent Sunrise Lobster Breakfast will.

The lavish hotel in The Rocks already has a reputation among night owls for Blu Bar on 36 and its spectacular vantage over Sydney harbour. But guests who make a morning booking (6.30–8am) for the Sunrise Lobster Breakfast at its restaurant Altitude from Thursday through Sunday, can enjoy a decadent serve of lobster, sparkling and a window seat (that's hopefully doused in sunshine).

Specifically, if you make it out of bed at those hours, your $109pp bill will have you watching the sun rise over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, while devouring an omelette that heroes West Australian lobster (the freshest, of course). A creamy lobster bisque, fresh rocket salad of candied walnuts, orange braised fennel and avocado and toasted Sonoma sourdough joins your lavish eggs — as does an ice-cold glass of Veuve Clicquot. You can upgrade with Black Oscietra Caviar and blinis, or elevate an already exceptional glass to a pour of Dom Perignon. Still hungry? Don't forget to weave through the buffet of treats — such as scrumptious pastries, artisanal cheeses, luscious salads and charcuterie — also included in the price. Consider all excuses to hit snooze put to bed.

Shangri-La Sydney's Sunrise Lobster Breakfast is offered from 6.30–8am, Thursday through Sunday. To make a booking, head to the website.
