Family-run Middle Eastern venue Oasis currently holds a firm place in a whole lot of hearts. It's been 21 years since Emad and Marwa Makool first launched their pint-sized bakery and grocery store in Murrumbeena, and its popularity has spurred plenty of expansion along the way.

In fact, the cult favourite has grown so much, it's opened the doors to a second outpost. This month, it has unveiled its new cafe, food store and cooking school in the heart of Fairfield. Marking an exciting new era for the long-running favourite, the Station Street space is a contemporary food-lover's haven, complete with a restaurant, an all-day wine offering and a sprawling retail selection.

The restaurant space boasts room for 170 people across two levels, its contemporary fit-out cheery and inviting. Here, you can settle in over coffee and hearty breakfast plates, such as the orange blossom hotcakes with blood orange syrup, honey labneh and rose petal katifi, and a classic shakshuka eggs starring house-made tomato sauce and cilbir yoghurt.

Lunch and dinner might find you tucking into one of Oasis's famed shawarma wraps, a salmon burger showcasing its legendary 'yalleteef' spice mix, or maybe a share plate of roasted chicken wings elevated with chilli and pomegranate sauce. To match, there's a lineup of craft beers, wines from both Victoria and Lebanon, and classic cocktails available all day.

Venture through to the grocery section to find a hefty range of Oasis's signature Lebanese pita bread, pizzas and pastries, baked at the original outpost in Murrumbeena. The rest of the shelves are stocked with a tidy curation of pantry staples, regularly adjusted according to what customers are loving.

Find Oasis Fairfield at 92–96 Station Street, Fairfield. It's open from Monday–Thursday 7am–7pm, Friday 7am–9pm, Saturday 8am–9pm and Sunday 8am–7pm.
