This place is very deceiving from the outside. Looks small but once inside its, spacious and notice that this venue has two parts. There is the cafe to your right and the best middle eastern grocery store on the left. It is a foodie's paradise, with every middle eastern product imaginable including spices,pre made pizzas, breads, pides, labnehs, pastries falafel etc. All products, imported jars, spices are well labelled so you can stock up on your pantry goods!

The cafe part offers a wide variety of tasty offerings from breakfast to lunch and sweets and beverages. We have been here a few times and have never had a bad meal. From the big Lebanese breakfast to the shwarmas, the serves are generous and filling. The only downside is finding a place to sit! And perhaps parking, which is behind the shop.

Great place to bring your friends & family to try something different, or come here for your party food/ next gathering supplies.

Bonus - offers cooking demonstrations.

We were in Melbourne recently and our daughter took us to the Oasis Bakery for lunch. The food was delicious and there was such a variety we didn't know what to choose. We can't wait to visit Melbourne again just so we can try some of the many varied Lebanese pastries (vegetarian and sweet). One of the nicest food experiences we have had ior a lunch time meal. The place was really, really busy which is always a good sign!!

Only recently found out about this 'gold mine' although we don't live too far away. Why did I not know about this amazing place before!? The unusual spices, grains, exotic groceries, truly authentic middle eastern foods and cakes and coffee all make it a must visit. Very friendly staff, handsome barista, clean, efficient, self order/pay/pick-up, indoor/outdoor seating and standing tables for quick snacks. Undercover and out front parking no problem. Buy some groceries, have a meal and take one home.... Want to go to a Cooking Demo soon.

Have been going past this place for years and have only once been inside a few years ago.
Could hardly believe how busy and the variety that was available. Good prices on the cafe food as well

We have family in the area and have been going to oasis for years.
The food is yummy and always fresh due to the high numbers of guests.
Parking is a problem although there is plenty in the side streets and behind oasis.
At times there are no seats but there are signs at tables saying they are applying to council but these have been there for quite some time, maybe a little too long.
Great staff, great grocery store and a family run business that needs to be supported much better value than any other fast food out there but dont go there for a restaurant experience.
Keep up the good work guys.
We will always be back.
