Sundays in Melbourne…  The overcast streets are filled with couples young and old. Hand in hand, smiling, laughing and enjoying the rays of warmth, shimmering from above. A strong skinny latte in one hand, the weekend papers in the other. Dogs all shapes and sizes, drinking from a communal stainless steel bowl while party goers leave dark caves, avoiding the harsh light. The quaint, kitschy suburb of Thornbury is no different to usual Sunday precessions. Home to a wave of young, urbane professionals, greenies and old school locals, the unpretentious Miller Street boasts their main attraction, Pearl Oyster.  

The Asian, Middle-Eastern and Italian infused menu is a clear winner. Pearl Oyster showcases a refreshingly honest and affordable dining experience for those who love great coffee and modern favourites. Exotic, fresh ingredients are cleverly combined to create a series of flavoursome dishes.  This unique café stands alone, particularly because it doesn’t borrow popularised elements from other eateries or replicate standard menus. A fabulous find, head down to Pearl Oyster today and enjoy the great ambience, delicious food and spacious courtyard!
