12 Queen Street‚ Goodna

Big by name and by nature as it turns out, at this Goodna café!

Big Belly is a café by day serving breakfast, coffee and lunch, then transforms into a restaurant, Indian Belly, at night and the menus are indeed big!

With loaded cake cabinets and a pleasant ambience, it’s the perfect stop any time if you’re visiting this part of the world.

Preeti and Navi Mahendru opened the business in October 2020 with two talented chefs in the kitchen, Rakesh and Abhi.

It is hard to know where to start with the menu because it really is so diverse. You can order breakfast fare taken to new heights such as the avo on toast served with beetroot hummus and grilled pumpkin, or the Big Belly Omelette with ham, spinach, tomato, mozzarella and tomato relish. Or classics like the Eggs Benedict or French toast with caramelised banana, pear, ice cream and maple.

Lunch ticks a ton of boxes too, from a Bulgolgi Bowl and Katsu Curry to a steak sandwich with chips and loaded burgers, or choose from a separate menu of Indian dishes and naans.
