The best thing about coffee shops is that they’re popping up everywhere.  With a little strategy, there’s an option on almost every route.  And the more that pop up, the easier it gets!

Much to my delight, my childhood milk bar on Beleura Hill Road in Mornington now has a café attached.  Once the lower grocery section, where I’d park my bike while returning empty lemonade bottles for the 10c deposit, is now host to great coffee and healthy food.

It’s got plenty of parking in a nice little pocket just out of the world’s eye.  Take five on your next drive!  Beleura Hill Café, naturally, it’s on Beleura Hill Rd in Mornington.
