La Camera Southbank - Go the Full Monty

Relax. Keep your pants on. I'm about to reveal to you one of Melbourne's best value breakfasts. At $7.50 it's not what Frugal Foo would normally call cheap. Most days Foo likes to eat breakfast for around $5. But Frugal Foo looks for VALUE and the breakfasts at La Camera have been a long time local favourite at Southbank.

From Monday to Friday, La Camera discount all their top price breakfasts down to $7.50. And coffee or tea is only $2. The weekend price for many of these breakfasts is $14.50 and $3.80 for coffee, so at $7.50 and $2 respectively it is great value during the week.

Highlight: My personal favourite is the Full Monty which has eggs anyway you like them, toast, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomato relish, baked beans and a hash brown. Not at all greasy as it so easily could be. My dining partner swears by the Veggie Brekkie which is the same thing minus bacon and sausage, add avocado and spinach.

Criticism: The prices have risen and I kinda suspect the sausages are not quite the full monty I remembered in previous years. Signs everywhere say no bill splitting but that is often conveniently forgotten at the checkout.

La Camera
Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner. $7.50 breakfasts only available Mon - Fri from 7:30am until 11:00am excluding public holidays.
