Follow the Leader is a cafe and restaurant nestled among the charming suburban Ripponlea shops. This is a well-loved local spot for getting one’s hangover deleting breakfast on, or a family brunch, or a summer dinner in the courtyard. Or all of the above, if you’re super keen.Which you very well may be. Follow the Leader does a mean breakfast by day (try the breakfast burger, teamed with a few cups of St Ali coffee), a mean lunch, and - as of just recently - dinner as well.The space itself is a mix of quaint, homely vibes, and a definite eye for style and design. The courtyard is a modern shady space, and is especially good for a summertime function.Follow the Leader is found along the Ripponlea Shops, on Glen Eira Road. Fun fact: that’s just down the road from Ripponlea train station. Woop! No hassle to get your friends south side for a brunch, or event. Although Follow the Leader is obviously convenient for those down south, it’s only about twenty or so minutes’ drive from the city.
