3 Mornington Peninsula Coffee Haunts That Are So Convenient, They’re Practically Drive-Thru.

Caffeine equals life. Am I right?

There’s nothing I love more than chilling in a café with a coffee and watching the world go by. But with two kids and those pesky “Don’t leave your kids in the car alone” laws, that is now a rare occurrence. Enter, drive-thru coffee from fast food joints at 8am on the school run. But fear not! You no longer have to sacrifice quality for convenience (unless you are a bit hung over and need a hash brown) Try one of the three cute cafes listed here instead and get your caffeine fix stat without having to unstrap the kids.



Cutest coffee cart in the business: Little Olive Café


Little Olive Café Mt Eliza.

Currently located at Eden Garden Nursery in Mt Eliza.

204 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC 3930

6.15am -9am

This coffee cart is as cute as a button and being positioned in a car park makes it perfect for a quick coffee dash. The coffee is great and you can grab a baked treat while you are there.

Hot Tip: You can purchase really cool reusable coffee mugs here. Think ceramic, glazed and arty.

Coffee convenience in Baxter


Coffee hut outside Tipples Backyards in Baxter

167 Moorooduc Hwy, Baxter VIC 3911

This little spot is literally on the highway so there is no excuse. It sells toasties and is right next door to a petrol station so you can pretty much get all your morning shiz sorted.

Hot Tip: This place has Eftpos. Winning!

Muffin and a latte at Apple Espresso in Mornington


Apple Espresso at Tully’s in Mornington

630 Moorooduc Hwy, Mornington VIC 3931

Imagine this scenario: You’ve dropped the kids at school and 5 minutes into your drive home the baby falls asleep in the car. Don’t waste your life away sitting in the driveway scrolling Facebook and fearing the transfer wakeup! Head to Tully’s and grab a coffee underneath a pear tree while bubba snoozes a metre or two away (obvi with the windows down and in full view and all those other legal/ethical/perfect-parent-patrol things.)

Hot Tip: If you have time to eat in, head out the back into the courtyard and grab a coffee and cake. Delicious!

  1. @ Merricks General Store – The Verandah for take away coffee – if you use the back car park can see you car with ease & it has some of the best coffee & muffins iv had on the peninsula (just leave the car parking spot next to the verandah empty its mine at 9:03 each morning 😜😂)

  2. @thecornerpantrycafe
    Shop 1/70 mountain view road, Mount Eliza.

    Tucked away on a quiet suburban street. Once I became a regular there my coffee order was memorised by the baristas and generally it’s ready by the time I walk to the counter

  3. Phone your order through to Higher Ground Mt Martha, park in the 5 min spot right next to the door and the staff will run your coffee out to you!

  4. Cafe del sol safety beach! The best they set up in the Cato ark next to the playground and beach! Perfect 👌🏼

    Little Rebel Dromana, can park directly out the front and see the car through the big glass windows at front! They also don’t charge extra for almond milk and the coffee is amazing!

    Conscious cravings at the cool stores next to endota, can park out front and see car.

    Cocobango Blairgowrie, amazing strong coffee and can see car easily when parked out front!

    Can you tell I have 4 little ones and LOVE my coffee 😂
