I think I may have just found my local brunch spot. Freestyle Espresso is tucked away in a side street about a block away from the South Melbourne Markets (perfect for some pre-market gnosh). The somewhat secluded location meant we were easily able to grab a table at 10.30am on a Sunday. The service was relaxed and friendly, the coffee was lovely and creamy, and the menu was mouthwatering! My boyfriend had the thyme mushrooms with lemon zest fetta on sourdough (and a couple of big juicy sausages on the side) and I had the free range poached eggs with bacon, basil and vine tomatoes. The servings were generous (took us through till dinner!) and very satisfying. We'll definitely be back.
