Located on Blenheim Road, Dose Diner breathes much-needed life into the area. Dose is redolent of the Melbourne café scene, with its industrial-influenced interior, extensive menu and laid back vibe. The diner is full of both spacious tables and cosy booths, making it the perfect spot for a catch up with friends.

Their substantial all-day menu is full of classic brunch favourites, like the avocado bruschetta or the decadent French toast. If breakfast isn’t your thing, the mouthwatering burgers or Vietnamese salad is sure to take your fancy. The focus is on flavours that pack a punch, combined with a dose of Asian flavour.

Dose doesn’t just do great food, though. They also offer plenty of drinks to quench your thirst; from perfectly made coffee to cold-pressed juices and a range of smoothies and milkshakes. If you’re after something stronger, the cocktail menu is hard to pass over, containing all the usual suspects, as well as a tempting sangria jug that can be shared between friends.

Whatever the occasion, Dose Diner is a spot for everyone, balancing just the right mix of cosy and intimate with vibrant and open spaces. Great food, great coffee and great service, there’s little doubt Dose has got it all.
