When it comes to round-the-clock dining options, there are few places that will have you covered from the wee hours of the morn to late in the evening, without sacrificing on quality.
Bucking the trend that seems to allow only petrol stations and corner shops to service early risers and nights owls, Middle South East is quite literally the hostess with the most-est. Providing the people of South Yarra with a watering hole to fuel them for the day, quench their thirst or replenish their energy stores after a long day in the office, this café/bar/restaurant is the kind of all-day eatery that you would be more than happy to see before the sun rises on a Monday morning.
Opening its doors in 2017, Middle South East takes up some prime Chapel Street real estate, outside the recently revamped 670 Chapel shopping precinct. A selection of classic Melbourne menu favourites are injected with a fresh dose of traditional Middle Eastern flavours and ingredients are available from morning to evening.
In the AM, expect delicious plates of cumin scrambled eggs, Middle Eastern lamb and egg bakes and haloumi burgers peaking at you from every table. However, the coffees are quickly swapped for Apérol spritzes and even the occasional espresso martini when the afternoon sets in. 4pm calls for happy hour, or even happy three hours as they seem to celebrate at Middle South East, and who doesn’t love a good happy hour?
Middle South East guests are treated with $5 beers, wines and aperol spritzes as well as $10 espresso martinis ahead of dinner time, and what could be a more perfect way to welcome in the weekend after a long week at work?
Open from 6:30am until late, this South Yarra establishment has the needs of every Southside local at its heart. While some of us are admittedly more morning people rather than party animals, and others are the kind of people that come alive once the sun sets, Middle South East does not discriminate and welcomes all with arms wide open, no matter what the time of day.
