The Penny Drop

OUR STORY

YOUR DESTINATION FOR BOX HILL’S BEST EATERY

The Penny Drop began as a little coffee pop-up in Box Hill, where hundreds of bleary-eyed commuters dropped by every morning to get their freshly prepared coffees. After seeing their customers’ enthusiasm for the brand and realising that there was a gap in the market for a vibrant all-day eatery in Box Hill, the penny metaphorically dropped for the owners.

Today, The Penny Drop is a permanent 100-seater restaurant sitting on the ground floor of the newly refurbished ATO building on Whitehorse Road. Designed by We Are Huntly, the space effortlessly combines high ceilings and muted earthy tones to create a warm and inviting oasis – perfect for diners wanting to escape the daily Melbourne grind.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Penny Drop’s modern Australian menu offers a range of exciting dishes such as breakfast classics through to unique share plates with an Asian-inspired twist. Fully licensed, The Penny Drop is open seven days a week; bookings are warmly accepted for dinner and walk-ins are available at all other times.

We have been featured in some of Melbourne’s most loved publications including Good Food Guide, Broadsheet, Urban List and Weekend Notes. We hope to see you soon!
