First time café owners, Dror & Yariv, have put together their passion for food and business to open Turquoise Eatery in the heart of Caulfield South.

The café’s décor creatively incorporates rustic recycled pieces from old furniture stores and vintage suitcases. Reflecting back to the building’s heritage of an old furniture store, it is something worth seeing in itself and creates a unique dining atmosphere.


Dror and Yariv have come together to combine and share their love of food and diverse experience.  Dror moved to New York City to study at an award-winning culinary institute, then progressed to work in some of New York’s best French restaurants. Yariv has enjoyed the rare opportunity of working for Neil Perry at Rockpool.


The menu reflects the journey and memories of Dror and Yariv’s experiences. It includes dishes which are “something our grandmas used to make us”. A menu that is full of zesty and hearty flavours influenced by Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and drawing on French culinary techniques from Dror’s time in New York.


The restaurant’s focus is on fresh produce believing it makes a big difference to a dish from the way it tastes and looks. They take the ingredients, come up with ideas and combine them with a highly skilled level of cooking.  Everything is made on site and fresh to order.


The dishes we couldn’t go past the M.E Ploughman’s Breaky Bowl – Zaatar flatbread topped with Israeli salad, roasted eggplant, falafel, hard boiled egg, olive cottage cheese and pumpkin amba.


Want something more hearty? Definitely, go for the Eggplant & Feta Shakshuka. The best in Melbourne! Two free range eggs baked in a rich tomato sugo, accompanied by pita bread


Their coffee of choice is Clarke St Roasters – Seasonal Blend, while staying on trend with Prana Chai Matcha Latte by Match Maiden & Golden Lattes by Golden Grind!


You know you’re going to be in good hands at Turquoise Eatery!
