About Lady Bower

Lady Bower is a cute café that feels like home with a friendly atmosphere welcoming to all members of the family, including kids and canines. Our menu uses fresh seasonal produce and nods to the multi ethnic surroundings of it’s home in Reservoir. Join us for a pulled pork belly roll or killer gluten free vegan breakfast and delight in the artwork or fresh Banksia flowers that decorate the tables.


Lady Bower's Renee


I grew up in Epping nearby, and always wanted to find a café in my area that was quality without having to drive to Collingwood or Fitzroy. After years of being a customer here, through kismet the café became mine and we renovated it and overhauled the menu.

I am excited and passionate about creating fresh and healthy food using local suppliers. Along with my highly experienced team, we are developing and creating seasonal menus using quality ingredients and our bread is baked at Ed’s Bread, in a kitchen nearby at (you guessed it) Ed’s house where he bakes bread with his own hands.

We have local artists displaying works on the walls, and our regulars appreciate that we know their order before they arrive at the door. Lady Bower feels like a home away from home, a place you want to hang around in, and read the newspaper as the sunlight moves across the table.
