More about Cafe Oggi, Burwood East

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 experienced friendly, accommodating staff and enjoyed lovely food - good variety. The premises and bathroom were clean, and fresh. The coffee was also very good.
