Set against an open green, Cafe Melba at Mediapolis is the second outlet of the popular restaurant at Goodman Arts Centre. Designed by award-winning Australian designer Emma Maxwell, this outlet looks distinctly different from the first one – it has a casual feel for relaxed brunches, but also chic enough for dinner or post-work drinks.


Dressed in warm wood finishes, cosy wool upholstery, and attractive colours, the interiors comprise a mix of geometric and rounded forms. 


Emma had also designed the loose furniture and lighting with sustainability in mind. Chair backs are upholstered with Leaf recycled wool felt by Kirkby Design, while reclaimed solid oak slabs were used to create the tables.


Other structural design features of the space include the layered copper-tone ceiling, fashioned out of recycled aluminum plates and curved to a specific 30 degree angle. This helps to control the acoustics in the space, for a pleasant dining experience without lots of disturbing background noise.

As a backdrop for the dining area, Hungarian brand Kaza’s hexagonal concrete blocks in shades of grey and pink make up a striking textured feature wall.


The family-friendly restaurant serves up a variety of tasty offerings, from all-day breakfast, such as Mozzarella Stuffed Potato Rosti (pictured) and Caraway Dark Rye Bread and Avocado (pictured), to refreshing salads, hearty mains and even a weekend roast. 

Combined with its stylish and relaxing atmosphere, Cafe Melba at Mediapolis makes for a great refuelling spot any time of the day!
