About Us

We are a small locally owned café that opened March 10, 2020. Melanie Pitcher, the owner is from Barbados and moved to Melbourne on 2017. In Barbados she owned an operated a surfer Bed and Breakfast from 1996-2004 and then started a new business Barbados Surf Trips from 2005-2020. After relocating she was looking for a new opportunity and had an idea for a Poke Bowl restaurant. There was a small breakfast café for sale, she went to take a look and everything fell into place.  Mel's Tiki Café was born. Breakfast and Poke Bowls!!Her son Darian cooks and Daughter Kelsey serves on the weekends. Along with other amazing staff members. Come visit us soon!!
