We both decided to have the Burger Special that was advertised on the board out the front. A burger, chips and orange juice for only $12.50! We had a choice of either a beef, chicken or vegetarian burger. I opted for the vegetarian burger whilst my dining companion chose the beef burger. Both our burgers were brilliant! The burgers had lovely brioche buns and the coleslaw was a yummy addition. The chips were also excellent.
Afterwards we ordered a cake as all the cakes at Rox are made in house and look very tempting... We picked the ‘Cherry Ripe Slice ($5.00)’ which was scrumptious!
WHAT WE DRANK...
We started our lunch with a couple of lattes ($3.50).
Then we sipped on our freshly squeezed orange juices…
We were visiting the Salvos op shop at Kew and stumbled upon Rox Café and Bar. We thought we would pop in for a bite to eat and found that the café had a very relaxed vibe as well as fantastic service. There is a courtyard out the back for when the weather warms up too. Rox is also open for dinner on Friday and Saturday which we will have to try sometime.
