Not all bottomless brunches are equal.
However, all bottomless brunches are great.
They’re great because they allow you time to sit, eat, drink and converse with your friends, which is what sharing a meal is all about.
Also, eating is not supposed to be rushed and weekends are meant to be enjoyed, so what better way to do so than by celebrating life and friendships by eating and drinking, and then ordering another round for the table at no extra cost?
Luckily for Sydney, there are bottomless brunches that won’t leave a gaping hole in your bank account as well as bottomless brunches that spoil you with free-flowing champagne instead of mimosas, bellinis and Bloody Marys. Either way, there’s something for everyone.
1. Rosie Campbell’s, Surry Hills
Rosie Campbell’s, the Jamaican-inspired bar and eatery in Surry Hills, is all about that island life which is why they’re serving up free-flowing daiquiris when you go for brunch. Choose from one of four flavours—classic, pineapple, mango or passionfruit—and watch your winter blues wash away. Too much daiquiri? Switch over to wine.
And while you powwow with your crew, tuck into a five-course brunch featuring Rosie Campbell’s famous Jerk chicken, pineapple and jalapeño fritters, crab or veggie tacos, Kingston prawns and a tropical salad. Bear in mind, this banquet is designed to share.

At Beast & Co, they want to help tame your hunger and quench your thirst and on weekends, they just might have the perfect plan to help you do just that.
The Margarita Bottomless Brunch, which is actually more than just Margaritas, begins with a sharing menu loaded with beef tartare, roasted cabbage, mushroom risotto and chicken liver pate that you’ll be able to spread thin or thick on bread. Then, it’s time to defend your plate as you’ll move onto your choice of main from the slow-cooked pork belly, the fish of the day, or the farmer’s pick of the day highlighting the freshest of seasonal vegetables.
This is all accompanied by two hours of bottomless Margaritas, bellinis, or mimosas as well as wine or beer. Mocktails and juices can also be served to cater for the non-drinkers in the group.
