Doughbox Diner

Cafes, Eat, Sydney / 15 September 2014

Take a short stroll down Enmore Road and a skip back in time to enjoy the all-American diner experience at the Doughbox Diner.
Above the door reads a warning, “Lost in the 1950s.” Sandwiched in a peppermint coloured booth, surrounded by snaps of Buddy Holly and Marilyn Monroe and with Elvis playing on the loudspeaker, we begin to see why.
Ordinarily the domain of burgers and fries, the Doughbox puts a whole new spin on traditional diner fare. It’s all about the ‘Crepe Cone’ at this joint. Originally a gourmet pizza and crepe cafe, the owners, husband and wife duo George and Fiona relocated to a spot amongst the stretch of vintage stores in Enmore. They scrapped the pizza, embraced their passion for crepe making and capitalised on Sydney’s craze for all things red, white and blue.
With a menu that offers over twenty sweet and savoury crepe varieties, placing your order at the vintage cash register can be a touch overwhelming. Our advice? Ditch the cutlery and go all out with the double-meat bacon and chicken combo served with avocado and cheese, or order the classic PB combo; peanut butter, banana, choc chips and hazelnut spread. If crepes aren’t your thang’ checkout the freshly baked sweet waffles. With only five options to choose from including caramel, chocolate, cookies and maple syrup ordering from this menu is a little less-overwhelming.
Thickshakes are essential. Enjoy slurping cinnamon doughnut flavoured milky richness through a classic red and white striped straw. And with names like “Jailhouse Rock” and “Choc Around the Clock,” the speciality sundaes deserve a special shout out.
Doughbox Diner serves delicious 1950s nostalgia with a cherry on top.
