The Groove Train set off from right here in Melbourne way back in 1998, and has grown to include multiple restaurants across Victoria, Queensland, and New South Wales since then due to founder Rocky Veneziano’s take on high-quality fast food at affordable prices with friendly service to boot. The Groovers that have made Groove Train a destination when they’re looking for an international feed – Italian pasta and wood-fired pizza, Asian dishes, salads, steaks, and global mains – have many reasons to rejoice, and this outlet in Melbourne’s Brighton, not far from the beach along Church Street, is just one of them!

Excellent service & great meals, although there was rather too much food for us. Next time, we'll order smaller meals so that we can try the desserts!
Great variety of food choices, something for everyone especially if you are really hungry as the portion sizes are on the generous side. Friendly staff and always one of our favourite restaurants to walk to.
Passengers get on board with Groove Train for a stylish feed beginning with the restaurant’s diverse breakfast offering, and the same goes for the original Melbourne branches. Begin the day at Groove Train’s Brighton outlet along Church Street with fruit salad or triple-stack pancakes and French toast, gourmet toasted sandwiches and focaccia, eggs any which way, plus plenty of the house Groove Press craft coffee. Signature dishes in the morning include the smashed avo with feta and toasted sunflower and pepita seeds, and The Whole Groovy hog, a generous platter of fried eggs, Italian pork sausage, tomato, onions, mushrooms and hash browns on sourdough.
At 11;30, Groove Train fires up its famous all-day a la carte menu, offering a variety of international dishes that are sure to satisfy. Here at the Brighton outlet in Melbourne you can get your fix of Groove Train’s so-called pastabilities and risotto dishes, including pan-fried gnocchi with spinach, roasted pumpkin, sage, cream, and shaved parmesan, with gluten-free pasta on offer, too. Pizza and calzones are always popular here, made fresh to order in the restaurant’s wood-fired oven, ranging from meat lovers to a gourmet vegetarian option. Asian dishes and curries like the Thai red seafood curry and the classic Indonesian nasi goreng sidle up to Greek-Australian classics like lamb or chicken souvlaki with chips and grilled porterhouse and ribeye steaks cut from grass-fed high-country stock from Gippsland.
