Farewell St Kilda Rd

We’ve been privileged with the hard work of our teams and the committed support of thousands and thousands of customers to have experienced remarkable business growth in the opening of now nine kitchens across Melbourne. 

With the growth opportunities of our expanding city store network, we moved into our current catering and commissary production kitchen in Cremorne 4 years ago. Since then, our former much smaller support kitchen at the corner of St Kilda Rd & Toorak Rd has been operating solely as a reduced format EARL store, building a solid group of EARL fans that are based outside of the typical EARL CBD locations. 

With a renewed focus on the consistency of our offer, our store experience and pursuing the best for our teams we are closing EARL St Kilda Rd for Christmas this week and saying good bye after 5 years, as we will not be reopening this store next year. 

A new cafe will open at this site and we wish the team that take over the very best wishes and hope they continue to service your coffee, breakfasts and lunches. We hope you support them as you have supported us here.

2020 sees the opening of EARL Melbourne Airport in April/May, the continuation of our growing catering offer and the continually record-breaking seven EARL Canteen locations, plus our upcoming 10th birthday!

We’re planning on taking some beach time to dream up the necessary celebration that will happen late April, you’ll be invited to the party, watch this space. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year break.
