Piggery Café

For the ultimate farm-to-table experience, escape the city and head to the Piggery Café in the Dandenong Ranges. Start the day with a big breakfast of free-range eggs and freshly baked bread, then grab a coffee and wander outside for a game of lawn bowls with your mates.

The Sassafras Sweet Co.

Looking for something sweet? Satisfy your cravings at The Sassafras Sweet Co. where you can pick up a pack of your favourite lollies to snack on during the day. For an extra treat, grab a scoop of ice cream to go – after a few free samples, of course.

Heide Café

After checking out the latest exhibitions at the Heide Museum of Modern Art, head over to Heide Café for a bite to eat by the garden. Shake things up with an aperitif in the courtyard before indulging in a hearty main from their Modern Australian lunch menu.

Levantine Hill

If you plan on spending a day in the Yarra Valley, be sure to stop by Levantine Hill for an unforgettable dining experience. From the cellar door, find a spot by the wall-to-ceiling windows and settle in for a full course meal with a front row view of the vineyard.

Hanoi Hannah

During your travels beyond the CBD, stop off for some street food at Hanoi Hannah in Windsor. Take a seat in the sun and fill up on fusion finger food as you sip from a freshly cracked coconut or, if you're on the move, pick up a Banh Mi to enjoy en route.

Gin Palace

Following your epic food journey across Melbourne, wind down with a night cap at Gin Palace. Find a cosy spot in the basement bar and indulge in one of their signature cocktails or, if gin isn't your drink of choice, ask one of the friendly folks behind the bar to shake up something special.
