Squeezed in between Brunswick, Preston and Pascoe Vale, Coburg is actually kind of amazing. Though Brunswick gets most credit for Sydney Road it actually continues through Coburg and into Coburg North. And, not meaning to brag or anything, but Coburg now receives Uber Eats.

Cornerstone Pizzeria 

A local secret that has spread like wildfire. Cornerstone Pizzeria specialises in Italian cuisine with wood-fired oven pizzas and freshly made pastas. The seafood linguine and prosciutto pizza are definite crowd pleasers! We just hope you have enough room left for a dessert of Nutella pizza or pana cotta. We recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment. PS. The service is always amazing.

Coburger and Co 

New kids on the block Coburger and Co have certainly settled in nicely on Moreland Road, with their new and spacious venue. This cafeteria feeling vibe with beer and wine on tap will have you feeling like the cast of ‘Saved By The Bell’ in no time.
