Broken Egg Cafe is closing its doors in Melbourne’s inner north and is opening a bagel cafe in Melbourne CBD.

The Melbourne Bagel Cafe will be open from 3pm on Friday to 6pm on Sunday, with a menu of sandwiches, salads, cakes and muffins.

It will also have a full bar.

It is a break from the usual fare for the café, including sandwiches, muffins and tea.

“I’m not going to be here until there’s some closure,” said owner, Chris Dutton.

“We’re going to put on a show.”

Mr Dutton says the cafe’s closure is a “moment of truth” for the industry, and a sign of the times.

“There’s a lot of people that are not going [to] go to the shops, so there’s going to have to be some change in the way people go to their food.”

The Broken Egg cafe opened in the inner north of Melbourne in 2010 and has been serving up fresh bagels and sandwiches since.

Mr Dickson says the closure is “good for the community” and the community is “doing well”.

“People don’t come to the shop for the sake of buying a sandwich, they come for the vibe, for the people to hang out and hang out,” he said.

“If we don’t do it, then the people that go to this cafe won’t come.”

The café will reopen on Saturday.

A spokesman for Melbourne’s Department of Health said the department was aware of the closure and was investigating.

“While the establishment’s closing, staff are able to continue to serve the community through the bagel, salad and sandwiches and have plans to bring them back in the future,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.

“In the meantime, we are encouraging the community to come and visit the shop and share their love of the food.”
