    Convoy is a bustling local Moonee Ponds café with a walk-in only policy and a guaranteed queue on weekends waiting for one of their gorgeous outdoor booths or intimate indoor tables.

    From the team behind other well-known Naarm institutions such as HiFi and Terror Twilight, the menu is fresh and tasty and the kitchen is pumping. There is also a takeaway coffee window to serve coffee and snacks while you wait for your table, or to grab a little something with the family on your Sunday outing.

    Expect some twists on the classics such as their Smashed Avo – served with Black Olive Caramel, Feta, Pickled carrots and Salsa Verde. Or try something experimental such as the Okonomiyaki Waffle: think the best things about Okonomiyaki pressed in to a crispy edged waffle served with pickled ginger, fried egg, and nori crisps – add the side of the perfectly crunchy Salt and Vinegar Potatoes and you have the perfect cure-all Sunday brunch. Feeling fancy? Try the Prawn Roll or Steak Frites Roll with your Mimosa. Perfect for catch ups with friends, special occasions, or even to get some work done during the week in an airy open setting with a coffee in hand.

    Open Mon – Fri 7am to 4pm
    Sat & Sun 8am to 4pm
