Cafe with a view in Melbourne
The fact that I could munch on a decent, inexpensive sandwich while absorbing the scenery was a bonus. To be completely honest, I don’t even remember what kind of sandwich it was! It simply dealt efficiently with my hunger while I admired the sea.
The cafe is located in a cream puff of an Edwardian building dating back to 1904.
As well as sandwiches, it serves milkshakes, tea, pastries and other light snacks. But don’t expect to enjoy your cheap meal and a summer sunset, too: the cafe closes at 5:30pm on weekdays and 6:00pm on weekends. (If sunsets are your thing, check out the somewhat fancier Little Blue restaurant in the same building, where dishes include classics like risotto and chicken Kiev.)
And here’s the best part: behind the building, a long breakwater shelters a colony of little blue penguins. Ask the regulars sunbathing on the rocks to point them out to you. I took a million photos, but due to poor lighting and meagre skills, this was the best I could manage.
