Cafe Oggi is so much more than your usual cafe. An Italian-inspired restaurant, a cosy coffee shop and bar all in one, this restaurant is one of Burwood’s top hangouts, attracting guests from Melbourne and beyond. Located on Lakeside Drive, inside the business park on the corner of Burwood Highway and Springvale Road, Cafe Oggi features an old-school Italian atmosphere that’s comfortable and sophisticated. Stop by seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner at this cosy restaurant.
While Cafe Oggi – just outside of Melbourne city – does feature an array of classic Italian-inspired dishes, it also offers Australian favourites and some internationally-inspired delights from western Europe and Asia. A great place to have a drink or two with a friend or date, Cafe Oggi on Burwood’s Lakeside Drive offers an array of fine wines and beer, as well as their own cocktails including favourites like the Bubble Gum Shaker, Golden Cadillac and Japanese Slipper.
A good meal at Burwood’s Cafe Oggi begins with either the soup of the day or garlic focaccia, which comes to the table warm and perfectly toasted, just as it should. Mains at this Melbourne establishment include veal schnitzel, pork cutlet, and our favourite, theduck a l’orang, an orange-scented roasted half duckling, served with seasonal potatoes, vegetables and a Grand Marnier sauce. Fans of Italian cuisine love the chicken cartoccio with brandy mustard sauce, and everyone loves the desserts – try the caramelito or the tiramisu for a sweet finish to your meal.
We have been going there regularly for many years because the food is excellent and the service great.There is good variety of food as well.

Great food, friendly yet unobtrusive service and very reasonable prices. We shared an antipasto platter ( the best value) and our guests had the Bruschetta. For mains we had a Fettucine entree ( plenty for lunch) , a schnitzel, and our guests had lamb dishes. Couldn’t fit sweets in but we were sorely tempted and finished with coffees and tea! Thanks Again Cafe Oggi for a great afternoon!
Always enjoy Cafe Oggie. That is why we keep going back time and time again. I never give a perfect rating for anything because I believe perfection is impossible to attain, but I have to say we have NEVER had a bad experience there and have been going there for over 10 years.
Food and service was consistent with the high standard that we have come to expect from the staff over the many years that we have been customers. Warmly greeted at the door, quickly shown to our booth, water provided while we perused the menu, All four of us had different items, and all were pleased with their choice of food, likewise with our dessert. Fine wines by glass appreciated. Evening rounded out with coffee.
We were impressed that we didn't have to wait long for our meals. The meals were great. Our waitress, Grace was lovely and friendly. It was our first time at Cafe Oggi. We will definitely be returning.
We had a group reservation with the food preordered. The service was very quick and the food was good. The payment was a bit of a problem as we were not allowed to pay individually. While collecting the money to pay as a group the waitress changed her mind and started to take individual payments and not taking the money from those who contributed collectively. Not a nice experience at all. I'm being generous with the review only because the food arrived in time.
Enjoyed a lovely night at Cafe Oggi , everyone's meal was yummy ,hot & came out at same time ! The staff was super friendly & very efficient . Will visit again
Took our 10 employees for our annual Christmas Party. We were placed in booth type seating near the entry, would have preferred a table further inside the restaurant with individual seats. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Food was nothing to get excited over and portions were generous. Steaks were not all cooked as ordered, should have let the meat rest as it was still "ooozy". Entrees & platters were the best part of the meal. Drinks & cocktails were good and reasonably priced.
