About Hank Marvin

Cockney slang for ‘starving’, Hank Marvin on Lower Heidelberg Road brings a seasonal menu to Ivanhoe East sure to ignite taste buds. Paying tribute to Head Chef Luke’s English heritage, this rustic restaurant has recycled timber and exposed brick walls, polished concrete floor and an open kitchen giving a glimpse of hard-working Chefs in action; while a large undercover courtyard out back is ideal for laid-back drinks and lunches. Drop by early for a Starvin Marvin big brekkie of eggs, thyme roasted mushrooms, tomato, bacon, hash brown, chorizo and sourdough toast; while later diners are enticed by free-range roasted pork belly, borlotti bean and vegetable cassoulet, chorizo, crackle, prune and trotter sauce. Housemade gnocchi, roasted squash, peas and pecorino satisfies pasta lovers.

Great local cafe
Great place for a tasty meal always well cooked and creatively done by the Chef


This is a Great local cafe to seriously consider going to. The food is freshly prepared daily with seasonal ingredients. My favourite dish is the gnocchi with a burnt butter and sage sauce. Try it- you’ll not be disappointed. Great food, great coffee and very friendly staff. Very warm ambience to go with it. I love it and keep going back. Give it a try.


Great local cafe
The food at the cafe is restaurant quality and the menu changes seasonally. Always something interesting to try out and I’m never disappointed.


Commitment to excellent service and fresh delicious food
Luke's passion for food and service is evident from the moment you set foot inside Hank Marvin's! Probably a good thing I don't live closer - I'd be in there everyday !




Amazing food.
Food looks beautiful on the plate and tastes just as good.


Love the food, and the coffee! Always a fresh and tasty menu, and polite service


Seasonally changing menu, from barramundi, to rabbit to pigs head done 3 ways (my favourite). I absolutely rate the ristretto coffee as numero uno.
