victorian wine centre

about us

Owned and operated by father and son, family is at the essence of our cafe. Dad and I have shared an interest in culinary delights for many years and the VWC is an expression of that passion. Our cafe in the Middle Park Village is not only the home of food, coffee, wine, and music, it’s become quite an institution in our sun kissed slice of Melbourne.

Our vision is to share a little piece of us with our patrons and it’s our pleasure to welcome you into our ever growing family.


Daily breakfast and lunch, our menu is designed around fresh and seasonal produce. Ease the morning hunger with our very own toasted muesli and yoghurt, creamy scrambled eggs or our dukka inspired house eggs. Journey into lunch with a thai green curry that will tantalise your palette, a duck and mandarin stack that is extraordinarily popular or a world famous ‘Middle Burger’ that is certain to fill your belly. The wine list is extensive and our sommelier is eager to offer his suggestions.

casalinga friday

Filled with music from the Sicilian streets, Friday evenings indulge in all things Italy. Experience the heart of our family with a culinary journey of our culture. Engage your appetite with an aperitif of Aperol, Proseco and soda. Nibble on assagini and allow us to share with you the provincial dishes of our past. Designed weekly according to seasonal produce, our menu features pasta, risotto, veal and more. Buon Apetito!!!

wine bar & bottle shop

Heathcote Shiraz, Mornington Pinots, Tuscan Chianti and Sparkling from Champagne are but a few in the selection from our boutique wine store. Each bottle is hand selected by Joe and Peter after it survives a Friday night wine tasting with our VWC family. Enjoy a bottle in our cafè or wine bar, or take it home to grace your cellar.
