Darwin has some of the best big breakfasts in the Northern territory! Come find out some hidden gems and local favourites to go for some coffee, eggs and toast or pancakes.

Transit Lounge Cafe

Located just across the road from the Darwin International Airport is the bustling Transit Lounge Cafe. Serving up delicious coffee and meals from 6am Monday to Friday, you should make this your go-to venue if you’re after a filling feed. We recommend the big bonanza breakfast served with eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomato, a hash brown, baked beans and toast. Need something filling to takeaway? Try one of their scrumptious takeaway bacon and egg muffins; a filling treat you can eat on the run. Visit this friendly cafe for quality coffee and generous meals.

Q Bar & Brasserie on the Avenue

Q Bar and Brasserie on the Avenue is much loved for it’s gourmet dishes, for all meals of the day! While they serve up delicious lunch and dinner options to indulge in, their breakfast menu is one not to be missed. Their big breakfast comes with eggs cooked your way (poached, scrambled or fried), a gourmet sausage, baked beans, fried egg, bacon, sourdough, mushrooms and some of their potato rosti! Considering their normal breakfast meals are already generously sized, you’ll be very impressed with this big brekkie.

Cove Restaurant

Located in SKYCITY Darwin, Cove Restaurant is a tranquil, poolside dining venue with scrumptious breakfast options. Try the full breakfast served with sausage, bacon, tomato, mushroom, potato gems and two eggs cooked your way. If this isn’t quite to your tasting, indulge in the continental breakfast buffet, so you can fill your plate to the brim. If you can fit it in, we also recommend trying their healthy apple pie smoothie for a fresh drink to complement your breakfast.

Roma Bar Cafe

The Roma Bar Cafe has jam-packed their breakfast menu full of large dishes to satisfy your tastebuds! While they have the classic big breakfast on offer, they also offer other dishes of massive proportions such as the omelette supreme—a freshly cooked omelette served with ham, cheese, tomato, mushrooms, onion and toast. For something a bit different, the flamenco will appease your hungry tummy with a chorizo and tomato stew, topped with a fried egg for a spicy twist on breakfast.
