It's local favourite with rich pastries and great coffee. You can also pick some ready made meals if just want to come home and relax. There are a few seats but it's mainly grab and go bakery style with some take home meals. It’s a lovely walk just up the road if you feel like getting out for a stroll. Located just up the road at 284 Main Creek Road, Main Ridge

Wombat cafe is off the main beach-side part of Dromana but close to the mountain-biking Mecca along Boundary Road. It's fantastic to have a vegan and raw food cafe that's local. Everything is prepared fresh on site. Given the cost of ingredients and manual processing the prices are quite reasonable. The food is fantastic! A good sized variety of food options are available.They have a take away meal fridge so you can pick up a meal so you can dine in later if you wish.

This new kid on the block only opened mid December 2017. "Our venue at St Andrews Beach Brewery is what we believe to be a truly unique part of the Mornington Peninsula. What was once a Freedman family horse training facility has been transformed into a remarkable local brewery and beer garden. After a significant facelift, the centre of the old horse training facility is where you’ll find our beer garden and brewery. The stables, that were once home to some incredible racing pedigree have been converted into sitting areas. Our visitors can relax in a past Melbourne Cup winners box while enjoying freshly brewed characterful beers, something to eat and even better conversations"

Walking the secluded and peaceful Red Hill Rail Trail offered me a great opportunity to get away from it all – or get back to it all, depending on how you look at ‘it’ – if only for a few hours. The track, suitable for all walkers and riders runs between Red Hill South and Merricks Station Ground, mostly along the route of the old Red Hill Rail Line. The trail has a distinct local feel, being tucked away from the nearby tourist stops and taking you past the back of stunning private, rural properties, and vineyards. At other times tall pine trees provide shelter from any outside distraction. It is an informal walk with little obvious signage. Drinking water is also not available.

If you're looking for some great scenery this is your walk.Leaving the Cape Schanck Visitor Area car park, follow the sealed Cape Schanck Road for 600m back towards Boneo Road. Turn left onto the dirt track which leads into the national park. Follow the walking track through coastal Moonah woodland towards Fingal and Gunnamatta Beach. A detour circuit walk provides access inland to Fingal Picnic Area car park, drinking water and toilets. Further north a side track leads to secluded Fingal beach via a long path of steep stairs. If you visit the beach, be sure to return to the high track as through access to Gunnamatta is difficult along the beach, especially at high tide.
