We're sure many of you have noticed the cheap going rate for avocados at your local supermarket or wherever you get your fresh produce from.

Australia is currently in an avocado glut - over the last 12 months, the supply of avocados has risen by 26%. 

Holy guacamole! that's 22 avocados produced for each person.

We've rounded up a list of your favourite brunch spots in Stonnington to get your avocado fix, as voted by you. Go and avo good time with your mates while helping to address the avocado surplus!

Mammoth, Armadale

Mammoth's avo toast with dukkah crumbed egg, crispy chickpeas, cucumber, lemon labneh and fermented chilli is a sure crowd pleaser, though it'd be hard to pass up their brekky burrito (are fried halloumi nuggets ever really optional?) or fresh poke bowl.

Eden Espresso, Malvern

We don't know about you, but recovery eggs benny with hash browns and sliced avo is calling our name. You can also opt for a classic smashed avo with pomegranate seeds, or a bacon, avo and potato rosti sandwich on Turkish bread.

Jake And The Beans Talk, Malvern

All day brekky AND all day lunch? Say no more. Enjoy mouth-watering zucchini, pea and halloumi corn fritters stacked with avocado and other delights. Devour a mexican-style eggs benny with smashed avo and tomato salsa, or their epic version of a big brekky re-branded as The Jake (which can be made veggie or vegan).

Journeyman, Prahran

Coming in hot to Journeyman's menu is their newest rendition of avocado toast, featuring a smear of hummus and honey candied bacon. YUM. If you're extra hungry, sink your teeth into the JM vegetarian big breakfast - just make sure you have time to nurse your food coma afterwards.

Leaf Lane, South Yarra

Leaf Lane offers the classic breakfast options of your dreams. Think corn fritters and scrumptious avo salsa, avo smash on toasted sourdough, a good ol' BLAT, or a protein packed super greens bowl.

To get your avo hit, you'll have a hard time selecting between the super green brekky bowl, sweet corn and zucchini fritters with guacamole, or the avocado smash with feta. Adding avocado to their Monkey Funghi or savoury pancakes dish would be an excellent decision as well.
