A first-class café experience

Zelena Cafe Bar & Restaurant is the complete experience: delicious food, coffee and friendly service in an A-grade setting. 

Ask anyone in the world, and time and time again you will get the same response: Melbourne is synonymous with its cafe culture. And slowly but surely, that culture is starting to sprawl beyond the inner city to the outer suburbs, and the next in line to benefit are the lovely people of Croydon and surrounds, who are full of joy thanks to the latest addition, Zelena

Great Atmosphere

Do yourself a favour and venture out the back for a summer escape in the cafe’s outdoor al fresco area, perfect for that get-together with friends and family.

Exceptional Service

it’s easy to see that Zelena − a name derived from a combination of their beloved daughter’s names, Zena and Elena – is more than just a business for the couple. More so akin to their home − and a very classy one at that − where all are welcome.


“Our inspiration was to provide people with quality food and desserts all made on our premises.”

To achieve our goal, we have established relationships with local suppliers around Melbourne and country Victoria to produce a seasonal menu that caters to all tastes.


What People are Saying

“Amazing Quality”

Staff were very friendly. Food looked very appealing, fresh & was all that & some! Cafe was clean, modern & inviting. Mint & Lemon crusher was fresh, loukamades were delicious & the yo yo cake was divine (like a baked cheesecake)! Beautiful

I go here for mothers group for coffee and the owners are easily the nicest of all cafes in Croydon. Great customer service and consistent good coffee. Even though we are annoying with prams sometimes they are always nice and accomodating. Cakes look amazing, will do lunch next time.

Excellent service – will be back
The manager was very kind and gave us 2 free small cakes – they were the best
