This project report provides tales of the country Greek café, offered by those who owned, ran and frequented this twentieth-century Australian phenomenon. Greek and non-Greek Australians reveal the positive and negative aspects of the institution in their lives and their rural communities, but perhaps more importantly, what emerges is that the Greek café was a dynamo generating change within Australian popular culture – part of a process of Americanisation, affecting Australian eating and social habits, commercial food-catering ideas, products, technology, cinema, architecture and popular music.
