Who’s Open Over The Easter Weekend II

We hope that everyone is having  a great Easter Weekend! Now that we’ve rested, we’re hungry and keen for a browse of the shops, but what is open?

Broadsheet have published their list of Who’s Open Over The Easter Weekend. As a public service, here is a list of BusiChic’s additions. Not a means by which to encourage consumerism but to settle arguments with friends over what is opened and what is NOT! If you’re a proprietor and are opened, drop us an email at info@businesschic.com.au or list your business in the comments below.



The European | CBD | open breakfast, lunch and dinner – serve honest, tasty and consistently ace European fare.

Friends of Mine | Richmond | Prettiest cafe website we’ve ever visited, go here if you want delicious breakfast/lunch/brunch in a cosy setting of non-twee gorgeous. There might be a line, but it’s worth the wait.

Ganache Chocolate | CBD | South Yarra| chocolates and  sweet treats made fresh on the premises, every day. Savoury options also for those needing a ham & cheese croissant, salmon bagel or roast beef baguette. Our pick is the swiss truffle mousse cake – do it!

North South | South Yarra | for those who want a coffee on the run or to stay on for breakfast or lunch delicious.



New Kum Den | CBD | reliably tasty yum cha from 11am – 3pm on weekends & public holidays; we like the Five mixed dumplings (perfect for singles & couples!).. Also open for a la carte dinner.

Golden Dragon Palace | Lower Templestowe | Traditional yum cha in an opulent setting, in our opinion, well worth the drive.

Oriental Tea House | CBD | South Yarra | Chadstone – not open dinner | Yum cha in a mod setting.


lunch and dinner:


David’s | Prahran | Upmarket shanghai fare open for lunch and dinner

Omahs | Port Melbourne | we haven’t been here ourselves but the proprietor of this Malaysian Nyonya fare venue responded to our tweet.


Feel like a drive? destinations we like

Pie in the Sky| Olinda |  There are few things we love more than a whole shop full of freshly made pies…

Miss Marples | Sassafras | scones & tea, the old fashioned way, open from 11am!

Leura Park Estate | Bellarine Peninsula | Feel like a drive? This is one spot we like to stop at for a feed. We liked the hot rocks and yum cha basket, potato pizza also tasty.


Sadly we don’t have time to list individual boutiques and chemists so we’re taking the mass approach here:

Tuesday Public Holiday 26 April 10am-6pm


Easter Sunday – 24 April 10:00am – 5:00pm
ANZAC Day – 25 April 1:00pm – 5:00pm
