From rundown convenience store to one of Melbourne suburb Bentleigh’s favoured hangouts, Good Times Milk Bar is a highly Instagrammable bayside restaurant serving exceedingly tasty grub in splendid surrounds.
As the name suggests, the venue is a warm and welcoming neighbourhood spot, the folk at Good Times welcoming guests to the hip diner cum café to tuck into all-day breakfasts, burgers, sandwiches, bite-sized sweets and diner style shakes; its minimal, pastel coloured interiors offering a range of seating arrangements from communal tables to more intimate affairs, bold and colourful artwork offset by lashings of lush greenery.
Outside, a dog friendly courtyard—known as the the ‘Puppy Courtyard’, such is their love for our furry friends—is a fine spot for canine-loving foodies and diners hoping for a side of sunshine with their shakes; the sizeable space a charming spot from which to while a way a few hours whilst letting those Good Times roll.
Adhering to the interior’s colour palette of Palm Springs pink and French blue (an addition of striped parasols offering much needed protection from Melbourne rays), diners can peruse a menu that offers dishes such as ‘dippy’ eggs, smoked trout omelette and pastrami Benedict, a hearty selection of innovative patties and a comprehensive list of sweet milkshakes are on hand to help wash it all down.
Good Times Milk Bar, the place where beautiful people and beautifuler puppies collide.
