About The Parlor Milkbar & Kitchen
Dear diners, to reserve for groups of 14 and above, please contact the restaurant directly.
Beaumaris is one of Melbourne and Bayside’s prettiest suburbs, with Port Phillip at its feet and golf links at its head. It’s along Weatherall Road, up against the Royal Victoria and down the road from the Cheltenham golf courses (with easy access to Cheltenham station), that you can find The Parlor Milkbar & Kitchen, an easygoing cafe that’s bright and rustic all at once and that manages to cater to those in search of an all-day breakfast, brunches and lunches, romantic dinners or a larger celebration. Since opening its doors in 2011, The Parlor has become a local favourite.

The Parlor Milkbar & Kitchen opens early every day of the week to allow Beaumaris and Bayside’s breakfast and lazy lunch crew to settle in to some of Melbourne’s best cafe-restaurant fare. And a warmer family-run affair you could hardly find, with proprietors Bonne and Tamare yoking friends and family into business to make this neighbourhood fixture the resounding success it is today. As for that breakfast, it’s served until 4pm, and has all the headache-free simplicity and natural goodness you’d hope – with free-range eggs colliding with smashed avo, great coffee, organic teas from Larsen & Thompson, cold-pressed juices and smoothies, and, yes, a Pimms pitcher or espresso Martini if that’s your style.
Lunch arrives on time at noon, ramping up The Parlor’s already enviable offering with heartier dishes that draw heavily on European and modern Australian cuisines. This carries through to the dinner menu, a sought-after item in Melbourne’s Beaumaris and Cheltenham communities (be sure to book in advance given the venue’s limited availability), where entrees like confit pork belly with coriander, apple, watercress salad and a plum sauce do battle with rustic pasta dishes and Italianate mains like the veal cotoletta with fennel slaw and mash. An absolute Bayside beaut, The Parlor’s intimate premises along Weatherall Road demand advance reservations.
Just a catch up over drinks with friends but as always, staff great, very attentive and only coming over when they noticed our drinks close to empty, perfect afternoon that ended 5hrs later. Thank you to the staff at parlour
The food was really great and tasty. The atmosphere was nice too - not too noisy which was good. The staff were attentive but didn't rush us. Highly recommend.
Warm welcoming environment. Friendly staff and delicious food. A great place to catch up with friends at any time of the day. Will definitely return.
My daughter and I enjoyed our fireside table and the delicious lunch that we was served by our enthusiastic and helpful waitress. Later, she inquired as to whether we enjoyed the glass of Sangiovese that we had both ordered. The Parlor is a local favourite of mine and I always enjoy my visits with friends and family.
Had the bowl of latte made with Almond milk, was delicious. With guests this time who could not eat today but we will be next time, the food looked amazing, it was hard to pass up. It is a wonderful cosy place with a great fire perfect on a cold winters day. Best to go at non peak times as it can get a bit noisy but overall you won,t be disappointed.
Our first time at The Parlor and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Various dishes were ordered with the highlights being 2 of the entrees, the Panko Crumbed Eggplant and the Salmon Carpaccio which were delicious. The mains were also great but a bit of a struggle to finish as not only were they large servings the entrees were also of a generous size. All together a great evening meal washed down with a bottle Clover Shiraz.
Booked on line and all went smoothly. When we arrived our table was set and waiting for us. Service was very good and staff attentive. Food was delicious as 2 had the seafood linguini and one the chicken turkish bread. This came out timely. The restrooms were clean and well stocked. Plenty of parking available as well. Highly recommend this place to go. Next will be a dinner visit as the menu changes.
Fantastic food...great hollandaise sauce! Great Coffee and chocolate milkshakes. Relaxing yet classy atmosphere and the staff were wonderful. Easy to book online and access the menu before hand to make choices. Suited a vegan, a vegetarian and a meat eater in one seating. Highly recommend!
Never disappointed when I come here - great vibe and atmosphere...and the best corn fritters I've ever had! I definitely recommend The Parlor to anyone looking for a cool place to catch up with a friends, family or loved ones over a delicious meal.
We just had a lovely lunch at The Parlor. There's a wide range of choices on the menu. Breakfast meals are great for lunch and priced very reasonably. Service was great, environment warm, friendly and comfortable. We'll certainly be back!
The moment you walk into The Parlor you feel welcomed. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. I especially love the pulled pork bun and my daughter is a fan of the kid's cheeseburger.
We have eaten here several times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This time it was dinner and the menu had changed slightly, which I think is good - it's always nice that they make adjustments. Great food, great service, reasonable prices - it's our neighbourhood gem....
The fresh Oysters were unbelievable. Plump and gorgeous to the tastebuds. The Steak was clearly of the highest quality and it was cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and engaging. The acoustic guitarist was a Sexy beast.
Music in the background means that voices will be louder so need to be mindful the more people in the cafe the low the music needs to be. Food was spot on for the 4 of us who ordered and staff were brilliant
Always a great experience. Food delicious and service amazing friendly and prompt. Such a lovely atmosphere for a quiet evening that feels like a home away from home. Great job guys. Keep it up
The Parlour is a gas! The food is far out and we adore Kitty and Brynn who double as waiters and the entertainment! We love sitting on the sunny deck reading the weekend papars😊
Extremely disappointing service. Took our online booking for 8.30pm and on arrival advised us that the kitchen would be closing at 9pm. Once seated they advised us that in fact the grill had already been turned off which cut off 3 of the 4 main menu options. We then chose The hand made pasta only to find that it was not available either. We were also advise at that point that we would not be able to have dessert as these would take us past the 9pm kitchen closing time. We then made a wine selection. Five minutes later we were informed that they had recently reviewed the wine menu and the wine we selected was no longer offered (despite being on the menu). Needless to say by this point the evening had taken a rather sour turn and we were all wishing we had not chosen this restaurant. It was my girlfriends birthday and she chose the restaurant A real dampener on your birthday. Once we finished our one course meal we were presented with the bill, unrequested. We felt totally unwelcome and the rude service spoilt my friends birthday celebration.
Wonderful array and selection of delicious food. Good coffee. Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Highly recommended for girls lunches and great on a rainy cold day as there is an open fireplace.
We had a lovely lunch at The Parlor today, Friendly. helpful staff who were happy to explain things on the menu, fresh tasty food and nice atmosphere. We plan to return soon.
Staff were great, food was amazing and lovely with the fire inside :) Glass of wine with good company this little gem is worth popping into for a cuppa or lunch
