Brunch at Tom Phat
Brunch at Tom Phat

We know how it’s like. You wake up on January 1st and don’t feel quite as fresh as the new year. The last thing on your mind is to drag yourself to the stove and cook a nice, healthy and delicious brekkie. You gave up that idea even before it occurred to you. But when you headed out around the corner for some grub at your regular breakfast spot, it was all closed down. The panic! This is where this list comes in. We have listed five great places to have some great hangover food – and they’re all open on January 1st 2014!


St Ali

This Klaus and Fritz favourite will serve you some savoury treats from the kitchen. Make sure to order yourself a chai latte. It will warm you all up, in addition to being simply fabulous.

St. Ali South
Opening hours on January 1st / from 7am
12-18 Yarra Pl, South Melbourne VIC 3205 ‎
