Our Food Philosophy

Healthy Food | Delicious Food

Our menu is inspired by the tastes of home – so each dish tastes just like Nonna’s. Celebrate the best of Australian ingredients and the traditional cuisines of the Mediterranean.

The Cafe

We serve local roasters Proud Mary Coffee alongside freshly squeezed juices and signature cakes made onsite. Our dishes are created from scratch, cooked to order and unapologetically flavoursome as a menu appealing to every appetite, palate and dietary requirement. Let the flavours of our house-made dishes and pasta take you to the Mediterranean. Guided by the healthy eating lifestyles of the Mediterranean, we unite fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and olive oil on the plate with farm-fresh produce. Matched to coffee & teas, we also pair our dishes to our signature gelati creations for the ultimate taste sensation.


Recreate 1565 at home with ingredients from our very own pantry. We source unique Mediterranean and Australian products from staple items to cheeses and cured meats for you to grab, take home, and add 1565 flavour to your table.  


Adriano rolls out gelato, strong on Italian techniques and skills of the past with modern twists and an unbarred attitude. Crafted in-house and inspired by seasonal produce with fruits stewed on the premises, Adriano produces exciting spice and flavour combinations 
such as Kiwifruit, Prosecco & Rose Water. Seasonal flavours include Prickly Pear, Watermelon & Mint or Poached Peach, while regulars such as Coffee, Pistachio, Tiramisu, Ricotta and miele (honey) and more are signature standouts. We proudly avoid flavour enhancers and colouring for the trademark natural tastes of 1565’s artisan gelati.
