Whether you’re in need of a business-friendly brunch or a lazy central Sunday hotspot, North Geelong’s Café Bear and Scoobs is now the best spot for Sunday brunchin’ after extending their trading hours to be open on the day of rest from 9am to 2pm.
As a treat to those who are seizing the morning on a Sunday (as opposed to the rest of us who are most likely still in bed), this quaint café have you sorted. Whether you’re up for the breakfast tasting plate, complete with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, bacon, poached egg, spinach, avocado, feta AND a breakfast trifle – served with crusty bread; the baked eggs with Win’s famous tomato-based baked beans with a spicy grilled chorizo sausage; or if you’re more of an eggs Benedict fan… the team make it worth getting out of bed for.
Well known as the dessert kings, Mark (Bear) and Dave (Scoobs) also have your Sunday sweet tooth covered with the options of indulging in red velvet pancakes – complete with ice cream, berry coulis and chocolate sauce, to-die-for French toast; or the caramelised banana waffles. This is one place you’ll want to break your diet for… plus it’s a Sunday, there’s no judgement here.
And no stress if you happened to go out the night before, or you’re just loving spending that extra time between the sheets. With a breaky menu available until 2pm, you can stroll in just in time for the afternoon sun. We do love a place that gives a sleep in option!
All day lunch and deli options are also on offer (think a Ploughman’s Platter, hamburger with the lot, lasagne, croissants, pies and quiches), along with a sweep of delicate, wondrous homemade sweets that will slay you (they’re known to make amazing French Vanilla slice and mouth-watering cupcakes); it’s easily one of the best pick-me-up spots this side of Geelong.
If you ever find yourself asking what’s better than a Sunday morning sleep in, the answer is a Sunday spent with an excellent coffee in one hand and a spoonful of something delicious in the other at Café Bear and Scoobs. It’s well worth it.
