For breakfast on Sunday, we went to Beaches Café in Queenscliff. It was so good that we also had breakfast there again on Monday!
Their lattes ($3.50) using Jasper coffee were the perfect way to start the day. The first morning I had the ‘Pancakes: two pancakes with maple syrup and ice-cream ($10.00)’. They had the perfect ratio of ice-cream to maple syrup. The fluffy pancakes were cooked evenly and the bonus sliced strawberry added some tartness.
My dining companion chose the ‘Toasted Egg and Bacon Focaccia ($9.50)’. This was also a wonderful breakfast option.
The next morning I was ravenous so I picked the ‘Vegetarian Breakfast: Free range eggs, tomato, mushrooms, spinach on thick toast ($13.50)’. This was a very generous breakfast indeed.
My dining companion opted for one of their specials. The ‘B.L.T. with chutney and cheese ($10.00)’. This was even better than yesterday’s breakfast apparently...
Beaches Café is a fantastic cafe to try if you are down in Queenscliff...

Dinner: Day 2
We booked a table for dinner at the Couta Boat Café at the Queenscliff Inn. The beautiful Inn was built in 1902 and looked very warm and inviting. Well, it was rather on the cool side actually...

I washed down my fish scales with a Flying Brick Original Cider ($8.00). It was the highlight of the night. It was nice and dry, which I always prefer.

My dining companion went for the ‘Bouillabaisse: fresh local seafood in a tomato and saffron broth with roasted red pepper rouille croutons ($28.90)’. The dish was quite nice but the mussels were tiny and overcooked.
