Australian-style breakfasts have become increasingly popular in New York City, especially in neighborhoods like Greenpoint and Williamsburg, thanks to the proliferation of Australian-style cafes.

Cafes like Two Hands, Ruby’s, Flinder’s Lane, Banter and Five Leaves feature sumptuous yet healthy breakfasts including organic porridge with raw honey and grass-fed cream, free-range poached eggs with local bacon and roasted broccoli, and many varieties of avocado toast. They serve breakfast all day long, according to The New York Times. 

This is not a coincidence, the Times says – in 2005, the U.S. signed a trade agreement that included a flexible new work visa specifically for Australians. Several thousand Australians, most of them young adults, have been coming here every year since. 

“Breakfast in Australia can last until it’s time for a beer, if you work it right,” Nicola Palmer, a graphic designer from Canberra who lives in Williamsburg, told the Times.
