Chances are, you’re already familiar with Groove Train. As one of Melbourne’s best exports, the restaurant consistently impresses foodies and families all over eastern Australia. Their first outlet opened up in Melbourne back in 1998, and since then, the company has been sharing their superb international dishes with diners who appreciate great coffee, delicious cuisine and fantastic customer service. The Reservoir outlet, found inside of Summerhill Shopping Centre off of Plenty Road, is a busy location and especially popular with students from nearby La Trobe University and just moments away from the Loddon Ave. & Plenty Rd. tram station.
From nachos to steak sandwiches, Reservoir’s Groove Train has all the international flavours you’re after. Breakfast is one of the Melbourne restaurant’s busiest times, thanks to its impressive selection of morning eats from eggs on toast to breakfast burritos, as well as its very own coffee blend, Groove Press. Try the grilled ham, cheese & tomato toastie for a simple early-bird sandwich, or go for a hearty platter like the Whole Groovy Hog, a plate chock-full of Italian pork sausage, fried eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, hash browns, onions and sourdough bread. Sweet lovers typically go for the French toast topped with cinnamon, icing sugar and maple syrup, and we can’t blame them – why not add grilled banana to really go all out?
The Groove Train outlet inside of Summerhill Shopping Centre – just off of Plenty Road – is proud to serve up some of Reservoir’s favourite international eats including wood-fired pizzas, Asian stir-fries and Mediterranean specialties. Seafood fans can attest to how delicious the Grooves Fisherman’s Basket is – featuring grilled tiger prawns, salt & pepper calamari, scallops, beer battered fish fillets, chips, salad and sauce, this popular option is a serious feast! The penne amatriciana is another favourite, tossed with garlic, roasted capsicum, kalamata olives, chilli, parmesan and Napoli sauce, and the veggie burger pleases vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. Sweet lovers stop by Reservoir’s Groove Train for decadent desserts like the restaurant’s very own chocolate calzone (filled with nutella, fresh strawberries, chocolate sauce and ice cream), the dark chocolate mousse and the rich tiramisu. There’s a great kids’ menu too, so bring the little ones along for an unforgettable family outing at Melbourne’s most popular international restaurant.
Great service, quick turnaround, trendy decor, generous portions great value, ample parking right outside. Would definately go again and recommend to others... you have to try the tasting platter, delish but left little room for mains.
Good service and the food is delicious. The restaurant is spacious with decent design. The price is reasonable. Near Latrobe university. I’m really satisfied with the experience
