The old-school take-away corner store is where most of us venture for some fish and chips when those cravings hit. But what if your local store is not just your average fish and chippery? The lucky locals of Carnegie have exactly this in their neighbourhood. Locals are spoiled with At The Catch Carnegie where the only things old-school about them is their exceptional service and recipes!
CONVENIENCE, lifestyle and lattes. That could be the catchphrase for Carnegie, a small suburb in Melbourne’s south east that is punching well above its weight — and the state’s average — when it comes to location and livability factors.
Roule Galette is a little piece of France where you will find French staff, speaking the language of Voltaire who will serve you in a warm and intimate setting reminiscent of Montmartre in Paris.
Music, whether Breton or French songs of the last century or more modern times will accompany your meal along with authentic Cider from the Pays d’Auge in Normandie, or Cotes du Rhone or Burgundy wines. Not to forget the inimitable Orangina.

WHO says there’s such a thing as the wrong side of the tracks?
Sure, it’s over the railway line down the Dandenong Road end of Koornang Road, near the Rosstown Hotel and away from the heart of the shopping strip that is home to some of the area’s favourite eateries, such as Huff Bagelry, Figjam, Auntie’s Dumpling and Shyun, but it’s already making a case that going that extra (figurative) mile will be worth your while.
The Rosstown's Award Winning Bistro and Restaurant have received accolades from within the industry and the media. The Restaurant was the winner of the "The Best Hotel Restaurant" in Victoria. The Bistro was the winner of the "The Best Hotel Bistro."
