I have been living in Oakleigh for all my life. I have tried every place to eat, from all meat you can eat on Eaton mall to the little gem restaurants like Little Italy and Terra Cote on the outskirts of Oakleigh Central. But, even after 20 years of living the Oakleigh life, there a few places I will always go back to eat.
Oakleigh’s thriving central mall is lined with rambling al frescos cafés that sets the perfect scene for long conversations over heady Greek coffee. Unsurprisingly, the majority of eateries in Oakleigh are Greek, so if you’ve got a desire for juicy souvlaki or honey-drenched pastry, you’re going to be in heaven here. Here’s a rundown of just a few of Oakleigh’s tastiest.
1 – 5Five Bake House
In the heart of Eaton Mall, the ambiance at 5FiveBakehouse is lively and enjoyable. With the bright yellow color, antlers hanging from the roof and the friendly good morning from the Barista, you will see me every morning with a coffee in hand and a smile on my face. The options here never disappoint, with breakfast served until the afternoon, burgers, sliders and the display of cakes, you will always be tempted to sit down and soak in the Oakleigh atmosphere.
2 – MeatMe Souvlakeri
If you ever come to Oakleigh just before dinner is served, you will see the streets filled with smoke, with fresh spits being prepared, and the aroma walking down Eaton Mall will certainly make your mouth water. The decision on where to eat will get harder and harder. With MeatMe Souvlakeri on both side of Eaton Mall, it will be hard to miss this option for a feast. Starting off with a Mix Grill for 2, Fried Calamari and some mouth-watering Saganaki, you can never make a bad decision and you will surely be leaving feeling satisfied! Warning: bring your stretchy pants otherwise be prepared to leave with the top button of your pants undone.
3 – Hunky Dory
The newest addition to Eaton Mall, it’s a fantastic place to grab a light lunch to recharge during those quick office breaks. As you walk in, you will be welcomed to the view of fresh fish and salad, an abundance of natural light and lobster cages hanging from the walls. This healthy seafood option will have something to serve everyone, from deliciously grilled fillet of Salmon or Whiting, Greek or spinach salad and a healthy serve of brown rice. There’s something for everyone even if you’re just after the traditional fish and chips.
