Monica’s Pizza & Monica’s Dine In

Monicas diner


Jason Yarak opened his first store Monica’s Pizza at the Blakes Crossing Shopping Centre 5 years ago. Two years later he followed with Monica’s Dine-in. In fact, Jason loves the Blakes Crossing community so much he also bought an ex display home in the Lendlease development too!

Jason has chosen the Blakes Crossing community for his home and two businesses because he could knows that Lendlease build quality developments, so as the development grew, so would his business interests. It is very important to him and his family to support the local community and local businesses. Even his four children Chris, Monica, Paul and Elias, all attend Hope Christian College in Blakeview.

Jason loves the village feel of Blakes Crossing, where everyone knows everyone. This welcoming feel goes well with his Lebanese heritage and he likes that you know people’s names as you walk down the street.

Indeed, the entire business is a family affair. Both the Monica stores are named after Jason’s daughter. And his wife Mireille, her sister Carole and her children Johnny and Charlie can all be found pitching in to help out in store.

The best-selling favourite at Monica’s Dine-in is the Chicken Fillet A La Monica. These are chicken breasts fillets cooked in a creamy wine and garlic sauce, served with rice and vegetables for only $18.90. 

Monica’s Pizza and Pasta is one of the best in Northern Adelaide. If you have not meet all the local staff, make yourself known to Paige, Abby, Kayla, Taylah and Rebecca. Matthew, Ryan, Ben, Jordan and Wade twirl and swirl the dough to make a wicked delicious pizza.
