Brighton Schoolhouse Café is a unique eatery in a prime location. Set inside the original schoolhouse of Saint Andrew’s Church, the brick building dates back to 1843, with charming traces of the past still visible in the now-converted café. Situated on Saint Andrews Street, it’s only a short stroll from the beach and one of Melbourne’s most famous attractions, the Brighton Bathing Boxes.
Despite its historic setting, the eatery is anything but old-fashioned, serving contemporary food and drinks with artistic presentation. Brighton Schoolhouse Café has created a flavoursome menu that highlights the best of Australian produce and caters to everyone. Those with a sweet tooth can choose from waffles, hot cakes or mouth-watering freak shakes that come with a mountain of toppings. Gourmet food lovers, meanwhile, can feast on the likes of sticky pork belly, Portuguese-style baked eggs, burgers or lemongrass broth filled with fresh seafood. We recommend washing down such tasty dishes with the some local Melbourne brews and the onsite beer garden is partnered with Red Hill Brewery and Mountain Goat Beer to amplify your dining experience at this Australian-style cafe in Melbourne.
