Melbourne has so much to offer. I love experiencing new places and events and sharing them with you. I have an interest in gluten free, vegan and vegetarian diets so I will let you know if you these can be catered for in my reviews.

Worth stopping for a peak

[ADVERT]Cafe La Hoot really does have coffee to hoot about! Made with freshly ground beans, and served with a smile that make it a definite stop if you are out Winchelsea way.

Winchelsea is enroute to the Surf Coast or the Otways from Melbourne (or Adelaide). A reasonable sized country town established in the mid 1800s. A nice spot with the Barwon river flowing through near Cafe La Hoot.

Be aware though, you might feel like you are being watched. There are owls everywhere! They won't harm you though so you need not worry.

The seating is mostly outdoors.. It's cute and friendly for children and dogs. There is a playground and park opposite too.

Inside you will find a display cabinet with lots to tempt you with. From cakes and sweets to light lunches such as focacias, pies and pasties. They use local produce wherever possible and there is usually at least one gluten free option.

Back to the coffee. It is fairtrade and organic. I ordered one with soy milk and was pleased to see they used a premium brand. I have to say all soy milks are not the same, what cafes save in cheaper milks they probably lose in patronage. It was what I had been missing on the surf coast, very surprised to discover such good coffee here. I understand the iced coffee (with regular cows milk) wasn't bad either.

Cafe La Hoot is a little known treasure to tourists, but we did notice the locals frequenting and familiar. Although we were not there for a meal, the location was so special away from the other shops, the food looked so fresh and the coffee was exceptional enough to share this gem with you.
