Million dollar views with your coffee
If you're looking for a drink, a snack, a casual meal or just a good coffee with a sea view then the South Eastern Bayside suburbs of Melbourne could be just the place as they offer quite a few cafes that are either right on the beach or within metres of the sand. Starting from Beaumaris in the South and travelling North, here are some of the venues where you can enjoy coffee and affordable eats on the beachfront.
