The Food Republic Cafe Overview

Situated in the leafy enclave of Bellbird Estate in Blackburn, The Food Republic Café sits in a park like environment surrounded by trees and grassed outdoor areas. With a designed interior, reminiscent of European cafes in Milan and an era where glamour and elegance were always a part of the dining experience, walls of glass allow natural light to filter in, making for a relaxed space to enjoy background jazz and sip a cup of coffee. The Food Republic is open from breakfast daily, offering a modern European menu for lunch and dinner with a distinct family dining approach to shared plates, which can be matched according to the diners’ tastes. Enjoy Moreton Bay salt and pepper bugs with garlic cauliflower puree and macadamia with fresh chilli or perhaps the risotto white braised rabbit.

A few words from The Food Republic Cafe

The Food Republic is a premier establishment in the Eastern suburbs, setting a new benchmark for excellence.

Established to respond to the market that appreciates top quality food and service, this café is sophisticated and considered in every detail.

The Food Republic opens for breakfast 7 days a week with a list of beautifully cooked traditional favourites, as well as some creative new versions to keep you coming back time and time again.

Able to accommodate large group bookings as well as intimate tables for two, there are many options for comfort in the padded wall seating or booths. If it's alfresco dining you appreciate, then there are expansive outdoor options, including picnic tables under the tress, Paris style tables for two or semi-enclosed outdoor spaces for cooler nights.

We're simply a must try - another feather in Melbourne's café culture cap.
