AN AMERICAN DINER THAT'S VERY MELBOURNE

INSPIRED BY THE RETRO AMERICAN ROADSIDE PIT-STOP, OPERATOR DINER COMBINES CONTEMPORARY DESIGN AND A BUZZY OPEN KITCHEN WITH CADILLAC BOOTHS and CROWD-PLEASING COMFORT FOOD.

Operator Diner, the latest extension of the Operator brand, is a foray into breakfast, coffee and sandwiches for the hungry business crowd of the new Wesley precinct. Located on the ground floor between Lonsdale and Little Lonsdale Street, Operator Diner is set to be your new go-to.

Designed with nostalgia and comfort in mind, the space draws from the imagery of the classic American diner, evoking the mood of a place you can visit at any time of day where you will be greeted with great coffee, a tasty sandwich and a smile.

Cosy pockets of seating are framed by low walls and work to define the dine in and take away zones. The warm orange and brown colour tones are inspired by a retro 70’s palette, adding an undeniable warmth and nostalgia.

Kick start your morning with one of your favourite breakfast classics, sweet or savoury. For lunch you can expect a mouth watering array of American diner style sandwiches, salads and soups that are guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds, and top it off with Melbourne’s best coffee, provided by our long standing partner, Code Black Coffee Roasters.
