Shakes, jaffles, and coffee reign supreme over the menu at Rose Diner & Bar down Port Melbourne’s Bay Street. That said, there’s plenty more on offer at this chic spot, whose stunning art deco facade – a 1933 facelift – conceals an old pub that goes back to the late 19th century. These days the Rose Diner nods its head to modern Australian cuisine, that local-non-local fusion of British colonial, Pacific Rim and Asian influences, in lunch and dinner menus that have Melbourne foodies with a nose for something different all aflutter. From noon until 3pm, enjoy dishes like wasabi-dusted calamari with tamarind chilli jam and a noc nam dressing, the 100% Angus beef Rose burger with jalapenos and avocado, or the South African parma with chakalaka sauce. Dinner continues the down-home and international theme, with market fresh fish, roast duck, superfood salads and a mouthwatering selection of grills on offer.
