Kalko commercial frappe machine part of the Grand opening of iconic Melissa cafe in Oakleigh
Melissa, Melbourne’s iconic Greek cafe, has finally come to Oakleigh.
The first cafe of this chain was first started in 1969 by Nick and Soula Katsakis in Collingwood. They pick Melissa name for the cafe, which means honey bee.
For more than 43 years, the cafe and cake shop has been a place for clients to enjoy delicious Greek pastries, cakes, and other sweets from baklava to galaktoboureko washed down with the coffee.
This business has had many high-flying visitors, from Bert Newton to Graham Kennedy, Duran Duran, INXS, and cast members from Prisoner and Cop Shop.
These days, George and Angelo, Nick and Soula’s sons run the cafe but the original founders often pop in for a smile and chat.
There are several Melissa cafes around Melbourne and the fact that there was no one in Oakleigh was a huge oversight. Finally in Oakleigh, the cafe was inaugurated on the weekend and hopes to create a ‘Buzz’.
