As this is my very first official blog post, I would first like to introduce myself. I am the MELBOURNE BRUNCH BOY, or commonly known as Deyan. That’s Deh-yahn. I know, it’s very hard to say and for those who can, I applaud you! But, I do tell everyone that I meet that I’ll accept Dee or Dean as a substitute. Dean is actually the name I use to collect my take-away coffee orders, just to avoid those embarrassing name mispronunciations.
My brunch obsession started approximately two years ago. When my friends and I would finish tests at uni or complete major assessment tasks, as a little treat, we would go have brunch! I was constantly in awe of the amazing coffee and immaculately presented and yummy food. Hence, I would always take pictures of the food for hours (not really but a long time, haha!), always talk about how tasty the food was, and upload an obligatory picture on Instagram. My obsession has grown as time has gone on to the point where I make time every weekend for brunch at an amazing Melbourne cafe. I even drive up to an hour to visit the newest and greatest brunch spots Melbourne has to offer (now that’s dedication, haha!).
So by now you’re all probably wondering why is this kid telling us his whole life story and what’s the point of this blog? Well the whole point of this thing is so I can document my food and coffee adventures with you all so I can hopefully inspire you too to embark on your own escapades! Melbourne is Australia’s culinary capital and I urge you all to experience it with me 🙂
