Rowena Parade Corner Store

Posted by


An established Corner Store since 1956, the Rowena Parade Corner Store’s interior is a mix of old style furnishings and retro décor. One wall is adorned with a fresco of the Greek Islands and another has its own sliding wooden ladder to help to reach the groceries that cover the wall.

With all the regular milk bar essentials available, the RPCS also serves up some top-notch food. Serving breakfast and other small meals, the Greek theme is continued on the menu with a few specialty options.

As Melbourne had turned down the temperature gauge to freezing on the day my sister and I visited, we started off with hot drinks. I ordered a peppermint tea ($4) and my sister ordered a chai latte ($4.50).

To eat, I stuck with the Greek theme of the day ordering Plaki ($9.50) a traditional Greek dish of Lima beans baked in a tomato reduction with vegies, served on organic toast. The rich creaminess of the beans blended wonderfully with the tangy tomato sauce, all combined atop some buttery toast, it was a hearty meal. My sister ordered the Aussie Burger ($13.50), which she was pleased with, but would have preferred perhaps some more condiments like mayo, sauce and relish.

Overall the food was tasty and well priced and if you don’t have time to stop, there is also plenty of take home meal options in the deli fridge.

So if you need to pick up some milk and have a craving for some authentic Greek food, pop on down to Rowena Parade Corner Store.
