If you haven’t been there before, Fonzie’s Diner in Kilsyth, Victoria is certainly a trip worth making. Step back in time to that era when Elvis was kicking goals and Betty Boop certainly left her mark. (I could’ve sworn her eyes followed me around that restaurant and spotted me taking a photo…).
The restaurant is highly decorated with memorabilia, posters, models and other nostalgic pieces and if you’re really bored you can always sit at the bar and read the news articles and other publication excerpts to keep yourself occupied. Be sure to get out of your seat and take a stroll around the restaurant to check out the cabinet of old icecream cups and other nostalgic bits and pieces. Fascinating stuff!
I have to say too that the service was outstanding. We were greeted at the door, shown to a table and served a bottle of cold water with 2 Coke glasses immediately. Cutlery and serviettes then appeared while we browsed the menus, also really colourful!
We chose a Big Al’s Breakfast and a Ciabatta and eggs your way plus some avocado and bacon on the side. Me… thinking it would be a smallish serve… well… I was quite surprised. The amount of bacon on that plate made me feel like a real pig rather than the other way around… heh heh. The servings were certainly very generous and the food was really tasty, plus, the service was fast and efficient and the food hot…. as it should be.
The waitresses were dressed in the appropriate attire for the time period in the tuille-lined and flared skirts, hair done appropriately too right down to the white frilly bobby socks and white runners. Very cool. They were only too happy to assist with anything we needed too. Be sure to check out those mushrooms as a side dish! OMG… divine. Creamy, tasty, lush… just scrummy.
Pop by and lap up the good times. Get down and boogie to the juke box too if that takes your fancy.
