About The Old Garage Cafe

Find your home of wellness through coffee, food, family and traditional old school service with a smile at plant-based café The Old Garage on Glen Iris Road in Camberwell. This dog-friendly eatery, housed in a former garage, oozes rustic charm with exposed brick walls, black ceiling beams, trailing greenery and a white-picket fenced alfresco area under market umbrellas. Embark on an adventure of plant-based fare - where any animal product can be replaced with an environmentally sustainable and ethical alternative – from a menu of Lebanese classics with a modern twist. Chow down on a breakfast of corn, cauliflower and halloumi fritters, finished with pico de gallo and a poached egg; while the lunch crowd enjoys crispy skin grilled Atlantic salmon, on a bed of parsnip purée and salsa verde.

    Great cafe, amazing coffee and even better food. The Old Garage has such an imaginative menu, friendly staff and quick service. Definitely will be coming back time and time again!


    A foodie's dream!
    I've been frequenting the Old Garage almost since the day they opened, even though they are 20 min down the road!

    The service is always outstanding for humans and doggos alike. The menu uses plenty of fresh and mostly healthy ingredients to craft brunch items you want to order over and over again.

    My top pick would have to be the brekkie tacos!

    They also have fantastic specials - my partner and I often have to order 2 specials and share them because we can't choose!

    I love that the kitchen is incredibly friendly to all types of dietary requirements - gluten free, dairy free, vego, vegan, even keto.

    Highly recommend giving them a go - although I will warn you to book a table for the weekend, as they are very popular with the locals too!!


    We love eating at The Old Garage Cafe
    The Old Garage is the perfect cafe spot to go to for a catch up with friends, work meetings or just a brunch date. They cater for all different types of dietary requirements, my favourite is the vegan dirty south so delicious!
