I'm Melbourne based flyer but will be flying JAL Business class on a Saturday morning in April (Syd-Nar). I know I have access to the Qantas business class lounge but I also have two passes to the AMEX lounge. Is it worth visiting both lounges or should I just head to one and secure some seats? I'm assuming a Saturday morning at Sydney airport will be extremely busy. Traveling with my wife who has told me she is really only interested in the lounge that has the best breakfast!

The AMEX lounge is very small and often very crowded.

Honestly if you want the best brekky, go find a restaurant or cafe and then to the Qantas lounge to relax.

Neither lounge has a comparable breakfast to what you could get for under $25 at a cafe, so I concur with PCHammond

And don't forget, if you have Priority Pass then that breakfast could be 'free' (one lounge visit = $36 of dining credit at participating outlets).

I flew from Sydney last week ( qantas in first) and had a 7 hour delay. To pass the time I visited the business lounge. I was stunned, it was overcrowded with poor food, dirty floors and numerous people appeared to be there solely for the free alcohol. I concur find a nice bistro and treat yourself to Breckie

The Amex lounge is really really small. Like your lounge room small. I had to sit on a tiny stool for 1/2 hour till a couch came up. And the food was basic. Qantas is a lot better (although I agree, for food, special).
