If you’re in a mood for something unique, consider Cornerstone & Co., which combines traditional Japanese dishes with some beautiful Italian flavours.

There are some Asian influences like chargrilled Wagyu beef with sweet potato or beautiful daikon tuna rolls. Guests can also sample freshly roasted coffee served in 50’s style cups.

The Farm Cafe is an excellent choice if you want to enjoy a hearty meal with some sunshine. This rustic cafe offers flavourful but simple dishes like a plate of bacon, pork sausage, eggs, roasted tomatoes, potato cake, mushrooms, and toast. People who prefer lighter meals can enjoy fantastic foods like thyme-roasted mushrooms on polenta or caramel banana bread with baked eggs. The Farm Cafe is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a dog cafe in Melbourne because it has open space for your pet to run around.
