About Chatham Street Cafe

Channelling the vibe from one of Colombo's iconic eat streets, Chatham Street Café on Centre Road is where you want to be on Bentleigh's bustling dining strip. Named after the hip strip that occupies colonial buildings of a bygone era closely matched by Toorak, this venue is sleek and sophisticated with wall murals depicting the homeland, alongside geometric pendents and distressed timber accents. An all-day menu plates up choices like Parisian Twist – croissant, scrambled eggs, chilli coconut sambal and bacon; while those dining in the evening can start with zucchini flowers, stuffed with seafood mousse, Manchego cheese, lime and turmeric mayo. For the main, try spatchcock, lightly spiced with Jaffna curry powder, pandan leaves, chilli, cardamom and tamarind to mesmerise taste buds.

A few words from Chatham Street Cafe

Channelling the vibe from one of Colombo's iconic eat streets, Chatham Street Café on Centre Road is where you want to be on Bentleigh's bustling dining strip. Named after the hip strip that occupies colonial buildings of a bygone era closely matched by Toorak, this venue is sleek and sophisticated with wall murals depicting the homeland, alongside geometric pendents and distressed timber accents. An all-day menu plates up choices like the Ben-Tota – our take on the classic Eggs Benedict, with pol roti, slow cooked spiced pork belly, poached eggs, spinach mallum, hollandaise, and coconut sambol; while those dining in the evening can start with our Elu Mas Patty, with goat meat, lemongrass, chilli, lime and curry powder.

The food here is insanely delicious. Every little detail has been looked into meticulously, which ensures your experience here is nothing short of perfect. The staff are super friendly and attentive; the location - warm and inviting. Great brunch spot which showcases local produce, which is in fact admirable.
