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.
Little Olive Café Mt Eliza.
Currently located at Eden Garden Nursery in Mt Eliza.
204 Canadian Bay Rd, Mount Eliza VIC 3930
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 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!
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!
