The Roxy Café – Fully Restored to its Former Glory

The story of the Greek Café is a shared chapter in the histories of Greece and Australia, a chapter that is almost over. Very few Greek cafes operate as they did 50 years ago. The Roxy may be the last example of an interwar cinema and café remaining in Australia.

Greek Cafes changed the course of Australia’s cultural history and left a significant legacy on our culinary and cultural landscape. The Roxy is a symbol that epitomises the Greek migration experience: one that made an outstanding contribution to the development of Australia. It is important that this story be shared with future generations

The Roxy has become a place of great historical significance that exhibits local distinctiveness and a sense of place. Its civic pride and confidence in its heritage, in its cultural facilities and collections attracts people from all walks of life, all wanting to share this unique experience.

The Roxy Cafe is currently open from 7.30am to 4.00pm serving a selection of light meals, sandwiches and wraps, cakes and slices, cold drinks and tea and coffee.

To make a booking please contact Scott and Elaine on 0405 327 024.
