Coming Soon: Colac’s newest eatery Babil is set to have you drooling

Words by Mackenzie Pennycook

Colac is about to have a brand new, very exciting new restaurant.

Meet Babil, the new dining destination set to open on Colac’s Gellibrand street in the Oddfellows restaurant boasting a super cute exterior with great food to match.

The beautiful heritage building – built in 1891 – is set to the backdrop of Lake Colac, only two hours’ drive from Melbourne, and is on the doorstep of the Otways and Great Ocean Road.

With a private function room, capacity for 100 inside, 40 outside, and has a private carpark, Babil will be serving up hearty Turkish and French cuisine in the centre of Colac. Think huge Turkish breakfasts, mouth-watering kebabs and hearty soups for the cooler months – all things well worth the drive if you’re thinking of making a day trip out to Colac.

Fresh cheese, fresh bread and Turkish deserts are also all on the cards, as well as an extensive range of both gluten free and vegan options ensuring Babil is catering for everybody. That’s all of the info we have at this stage, but take a peek at their Instagram below. You’ll fall in love with the food – we promise.
