If Scandinavian-inspired plates are your jam and you’re in the Melbourne area, the flavours of Denmark, Norway and Sweden can be found in abundance at husband-and-wife-run all-day café ÖPPEN; dishes like Nordic spelt granola and their Scandi board with scrambled eggs, cured salmon, avocado, Danish feta, preserved vegetables, rye and granola adding an alternative to the Windsor dining scene.
Celebrating simplicity and honesty in an Instagram-ready space with on-trend pastel hues, Zume Pham and Amy Vo focus their attentions on quality and flavour at Windsor’s ÖPPEN; honouring the delicious plates they tasted whilst travelling through Scandinavia, where they discovered a common ground between Melbourne’s indomitable café culture and that of the Northern European region.
Celebrating wellness from the inside out, diners at this brilliant Windsor eatery can chow down on breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a prepossessing space conceived by branding and interior designers, BrandWorks, who looked toward nature in taking cues from Nordic aesthetic to create a dining room where dusty pinks and reds are offset by a mixture of bronze pendant lighting, oak furniture, and earthy terrazzo table tops; ÖPPEN balancing healthy and nutritious dishes with laid-back interiors.
A modern eatery with thoughtful dishes that deliver as much on flavour as they do their photogenic aeshetics, ÖPPEN is as fresh on the plate as it is concept. A true gem.
