Method to the Madness


Method to the Madness is a cool café in Kenmore serving fabulous all-day breakfast fare along with boozy brunch cocktails and top-notch coffee.

Inspired by William Shakespeare and influenced by Melbourne (the owners’ former hometown), the Shakespearean theme is featured throughout the café while a light-filled laneway dining space adds a Melburnian vibe.

Method to the Madness Kenmore

The all-day breakfast menu includes sweet and savoury dishes such as Nutella French toast with fresh fruit and vanilla bean mascarpone, chocolate porter hotcakes with brownie crumbs and mango mascarpone, sesame pork benedict with crispy chats, braised silver beat and black sesame hollandaise, and Be Not Afraid of Greatness - wagyu spag bol brioche sandwich with fried egg, crispy pancetta and pecorino.

The café is licensed with breakfast cocktails like The Weak White Russian (cold drip espresso, Kahlua, whipped cream and coconut milk) and Jealousy (crushed pineapple, vanilla ice cream, coconut milk and white rum). Otherwise, there’s Veneziano coffee, cold drip espresso, Chamellia tea, fresh juice, milkshakes and smoothies such as Romeo & Juliet – tropical juice, mango, banana and strawberry sorbet.

Need to know - Method to the Madness also offer a kid’s menu consisting of ham and cheese toasties, Little Egg (1 egg poached, fried or scrambled on sourdough with bacon) and Little pancakes served with maple syrup and vanilla bean ice cream.
