Our Story

The menu at Dee’s is largely influenced with healthy, simple flavours that everyone can enjoy. We believe in keeping the dishes simple and honest to their origin, with fresh flavours.

The menu is produce driven and changes seasonally depending on what is available and best in quality and sourced locally as much as possible. Other than some breads, everything is made in the kitchen, including pitas, sweets and pastries. Generally the dishes are heavier in winter – including the popular 16 hour roasted lamb shoulder – while lighter meals and salads in favour at summer.
Dee’s Kitchen is a celebration of diversity and culture, not only through the multicultural menu, but also the outfit which is infused with a feel of decades past and the funky urban café scene of Melbourne’s inner north. It is about much more than just a meal. It is a celebration of food, heritage, culture and, of course being social, yet it doesn’t sit out of place within the more relaxed environment of a beachside community.
