Professional bookkeeping & consulting for restaurants, cafes, bars and CATERING companies

Is your cashflow causing you stress?

If you said “Yes”, you’re not alone. Almost all hospitality business failures can be attributed to poor cashflow and high staff turnover. This is why a specialised hospitality bookkeeper is going to save you time and money. We help you to reach industry standards, improve cashflow and update your systems so you can smash your goals and sleep easy at night.

We cater to small businesses all over Melbourne, providing both general and specialised hospitality bookkeeping services. Streamlining processes to increase profitability and efficiency is our specialty. We also provide standard monthly bookkeeping services including data entry, bank reconciliations, BAS preparation & lodgement, payables and receivables, plus all-things-payroll.

“People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Over many years in the industry, we have developed the perfect strategy to assist cafes, restaurants and bars in solving their cash flow crisis. By rebuilding your costing systems we can help you become more profitable in just 8-12 weeks.

Don’T Get Caught with Egg on your face!

Trying to manage your own bookkeeping, as a business owner, is a recipe for stress. Not only are you increasing the risk of costly mistakes and late lodgements, but you’re ‘too emotionally involved’ in the data to be able to make strategic decisions.

Client Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it, see what our other clients have to say!


20 years in business and I have never hired any professional service that has been so prompt and reliable as Brunch & Books. The monthly review of our Profit & Loss is invaluable and has opened our eyes to the strengths and weaknesses in our business. As a result, we’ve been able to reduce costs without having any impact on sales. This has been a very profitable business investment this year.

The Lunch Guys


We were struggling with paying staff, rent and suppliers in our busy cafe and catering business. When we hired Brunch & Books, we found out where we were losing money and which expenses did not fall within the industry benchmarks. Thanks to them we can ensure our cashflow is healthy and we can breathe easy last.
