Cafe review: Doughbox Diner. Enmore Road, Enmore.

If you have ever watched the tv series happy days you will get a glimpse of the fabulous rock and roll 50s culture.

With Music starting with Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. It was an era of growing prosperity where the youth could enjoy life and really let their hair down.

Ambience: 5/5

The decor is on point. From red vinyl booths to baby pink and blue, right down to the black and white checkered floors. You half expect the food to be delivered via a roller skating waitress or waiter.

Food: 5/5

The hands down best thing about the food at Doughbox Diner is the free popcorn.

It really is the perfect start while you are waiting for the main food to arrive.

The menu at doughbox is extensive. Think buffalo wings, crêpe cones, hotdogs and burgers. Then there is dessert; pancakes, waffles, sundaes, oh me oh my. We must say it was a hard choice but we though we would stick with an american classic. The hamburger.

Enter the Dixie Cheeseburger and the Chilli Cheeseburger complete with fries and a mini American flag.

Drinks:  4/5

We cheated and changed the heading to drinks as opposed to just coffee. Because you do not come to a 50s diner for the coffee. You come for the overly sugary drinks.

A classic and one of our favourites is the Spider or rather ‘soda float’. Take a can of soda and some ice cream and you have a drink that will have you bouncing off the walls in no time. Top that off with the sherbet popsicle and wowie you hit another level.


Value for money: 4/5

The prices generally start around $10 for food and do go towards the higher end. But when you factor in the chips it really is even with other places in the area. And you definitely don’t leave hungry.

You can really tell the live the owners put into this place and the thought they have put in to every detail. It is definitely worth a visit or two or three. You get the idea.
