Spring time!



Spring is almost here!!

This week we enjoyed the warmest day in Melbourne in 3 months!

Spring is just around the corner so its time to put away the coat, hat and mittens and get excited!

We have some great new menu items at Buddhas (stay tuned!) and as always have an extra long happy hour from 4pm til 8pm.

We also have specials each day of the week (like Parma Rama Thursdays)! 

Come on down and celebrate the end of winter with us!

Current Fave Menu Item: The Zen Burger


Zen is about emphasizing enlightenment by the most direct means possible.  

And what could be more direct, tasty and satisfying as a Zen burger? 


What’s in this piece of deliciousness, you ask?


A 250g Patty, double cheese, zucchini pickles, bacon jam, with lettuce and Russian dressing.

Served with spiced chips and tomato chilli mayo.

As we say goodbye to summer, we feel its time for a change.  And what better way to welcome in the season than a new menu (and a new look to the website)!


Warm up with some Goji Berry Porridge, or perhaps some Thera Soup to soothe the soul (and tummy).
