Oakleigh's Cafe Culture: Where Coffee and Community Meet

In the heart of Oakleigh, a suburb pulsating with cultural diversity and vibrancy, there's a place where coffee and community come together in perfect harmony. Welcome to Double Pour Cafe, where the art of brewing exceptional coffee is just the beginning of an unforgettable experience.

A Journey Rooted in Excellence

The extraordinary journey that started 25 years ago at Southland Shopping Centre has culminated at Double Pour Café. Intermezzo, a stunning restaurant located directly across from Village Cinemas, was established at the beginning of our tale. Locals and moviegoers alike came to our scrumptious lunches before or after seeing a movie.

After a successful run at Intermezzo, we ventured to the picturesque bayside suburb of Blackrock, where we established "Intermezzo by the Sea". The appeal of the waterside setting counted as a new measurement to our culinary journey. At the same time, we took over a café called "Piazza Vercelli" on East Boundary Road in East Bentleigh.

Oakleigh's Cultural Tapestry

Oakleigh is more than just a suburban neighbourhood; it's a melting pot of cultures, making it the perfect backdrop for a thriving cafe culture. Our cafe, Double Pour, beautifully embodies the essence of this community. We've crafted our menu and ambience to cater to the diverse tastes and preferences that our patrons bring with them.
