About the Diner

Since 1994, Soda Rock Diner has been serving authentic American diner food to Melbourne.

Originally opened as Johnny Rockets, Soda Rock occupied the historic Capitol Bakery building on the corner of Chapel St & Toorak Rd, South Yarra.

Now open in the iconic Jam Factory. Our classic menu of burgers, hot dogs and milkshakes is here to serve a new generation.

American Desserts

Best milkshakes in town! Made the old-fashioned American way, with three scoops of quality ice cream, they're deliciously chilled, thick and creamy!

Have a sweet tooth? Indulge in Soda Rock's divine Cherry Pie, a rich, chocolaty American Brownie, a traditional Banana Split or a classic Hot Fudge Sundae.
