As distinctively Melbourne as a laneway wine bar or winter football match at the ’G, Stalactites is one of the city’s oldest and best-known restaurants.
Who hasn’t dropped in for a midnight souvlaki or slice of spanakopita, taking advantage of Stalactites’ 24-hour licence? Or dined in with friends, sharing dips, platters of grilled meats and rustic home-style dishes from the Peloponnese region of Greece?
An essential stop-off in Melbourne’s Greek precinct, Stalactites serves Greek breakfast to early birds – scrambled eggs with fresh tomato, feta and toast – or a breakfast souvlaki with bacon and eggs.
In the evening, share a banquet meat platter with lamb and chicken giros and homemade Greek rissoles. And to finish? Homemade baklava and galaktoboureko, of course.
