Amidst the tall buildings, modern city and bustling streets of Melbourne, Australia lies an old chocolate factory, in which Breakfast Thieves has called home since 2012. Of course, in today’s world in which Breakfast Thieves was built upon, they are bound to refurbish their humble abode to suit the current generation. Co-founders and Malaysians Brandon Chin, Edwin Koh and Kevin Foo thought it would be a great idea to open up a shop back home and so they attempted to recreate the similar popularity that has saw their shop often ranked amongst the top five cafes in Melbourne. 

In order to replicate the ambience back home they had to find a place in which it holds a heritage that helped assist the community back in its heyday, in short a 63-year-old commercial printing factory. Art Printing Works in Bangsar surrounds the minimalist modern-touched café. Breakfast Thieves serves the community Australian food with an Asian twist.
The décor looks simple enough to help you dine in peace as it takes your mind of its heritage in which the café was built upon. Of course, it would be nice for a place to serve big breakfast for the people that help build today’s society instead and of course, they happen to. 

The Leprechaun, which is made of crisp sweet corn and zucchini fritters with earthy creamed mushroom, pickled radish, avocado mousse and poached eggs is a dish to look out for if you happen to find yourself inside. The Legend, spicy baked eggs with chunky beef salami, okra, caramelised onion jam, mushroom, sweet corn, basil oil with herbed garlic toast also is a must try. Espresso-based drinks are also available to go with your morning meal. 

In short, this charming cavernous space sure wins your heart with great food and equally matching ambience.
