New Royal Stacks store shares some brekkie love

Kaylah Joelle Baker

Since its beginnings in 2016, Royal Stacks has been the go-to place for everything you expect to come from a funky, classic ‘90s American diner.

After selling the city on a stack of burgers and their unique frozen custard desserts, the burger joint has opened its eighth store at Melbourne Quarter. Never doing anything by halves, the recently-opened store on Gunpowder Walk laneway is offering an exclusive breakfast menu until 11am each day, something unheard of in their other stores.

From filtered coffee to breakfast sliders with egg and cheese, sausage or avocado to potato hash browns and pikelets coated in maple syrup or chocolate fudge, Royal Stacks is proving burgers are not just for lunch or dinner.

“We are excited to launch our very first breakfast menu at the Melbourne Quarter store, serving state-of-the-art V60 coffee and tasty brekkie items,” owner Dani Zeini said.

“We wanted to create a space where people can escape their daily rituals, eat great food and enjoy the best of the ‘90s. We love the CBD atmosphere at Melbourne Quarter and the precinct’s outdoor dining options.”

As the first Royal Stacks store to tap into the city breakfast crowd, the burger joint is ultimately expanding its reach.

It’s a move Mr Zeini said they were excited for, as they were wanting another location where they could serve “the best burgers in town”.

Continuing to stick with the elements of nostalgia that makes Royal Stacks special, the new store has set-up a mini blockbuster video store in the corner and an outside retro Telstra phone booth customers can order from.

In a time when city businesses are discussing scaling back or advancing their technology to leave the good old days behind, Royal Stacks new store is a welcomed change for the area.

Royal Stacks opened on May 20 in Melbourne Quarter located between Flinders and Collins streets and across from Southern Cross Station. •

The $2.9 billion Melbourne Quarter project seeks to connect the CBD with the Southern Cross Station and Batman’s Hill precincts.
