Dawson is the perfect place to go brunch with a large group of people cause they got plenty of space. It's also perfect for strollers and kids, they have kids menu and high chair. I went in on a Friday morning, bringing my husband, baby and my cousin who just arrived from Indonesia. She wanted to try the authentic Melbourne brunch.

We went in and ordered a range of drinks; Prana Chai ($5), Cappuccino ($3.8) and Orange juice ($4). Sadly, my cousin could not drink coffee cause it cost her no sleep so I suggested she opted for prana chai cause I think they are one of the best chai, she like it.

Cause we are so hungry, we ordered Mac & Cheese Croquettes (3pcs/$9) served with harissa mayo to start right away. There was only one staff and one barista around, so it took a while to get our food. The other staff comes a bit later that day. Their mac & cheese was crispy on the outside with strong cheese inside which we love.

Dawson Benedict - pulled BBQ beef brisket, poached eggs, hollandaise, house made sweet potato, pecorino cheese waffle ($18) with extra bacon. My cousin ordered this, she wanted the classic brunch dish but once she tasted it. She said beef brisket is similar to Indonesian meal called rendang which I said, yes it's basically cooked the same way with different spices. Love the sweet potato and fluffy cheese waffle.

Chicken & Pork Chorizo Paella for 2 - red capsicum, zucchini, baby peas, smoked paprika, saffron, fresh herbs ($28). At first, my husband wanted to order something else but I really want paella so we did ended up with giant flavourful paella. It was very well cooked and seasoned, I would order this again and again.

Kids Menu: Scrambled Egg with Ham. My kid seems to loving it and destroy it all the way. We did get a taste at the beginning though, well it's good indeed. Shape in the perfect round, simple with a toast.

Matcha & Berries - matcha panna cotta, raspberry parfait, caramelised white chocolate, berry textures ($12). This is what I came to Dawson for, their uniquely shape panna cotta and guess what, they taste so good too. I love the whole combination of berries, matcha and white chocolate. I would definitely order this again.
