CoCoa MooN CaFe - a capital experience
This smallish café is open for breakfast every morning and offers a large range of early morning options. An International Breakfast, a House Special Breakfast, a Classic Breakfast and a Light Breakfast.

That is how they write it.

The International Breakfast is intriguing, Mexican corn fritters, American pancakes, Cuban sandwich and a Philadelphia cheese steak.

The breakfast menu is available all day. Their lunch menu is mainly burgers and salads, offering four different options of each.

They can cater to any vegan requests and offer gluten-free options.

My visit was for an early afternoon coffee, and a selection from their display of slices and macaroons which they specialise in.

Slices display
The refrigerated display of goodies.

First impression was good. Nicely decorated, a bottle of water and cups on every table, menu doubling as a place mat, and friendly staff.

Louise cake
Four Louise slices, there were five when I arrived.

My coffee was hot, as ordered and I was taken by the Louise cake. When asked, I was informed it was a layer of shortbread, a layer of berries and a layer of moist coconut, in that order. It was delicious and quite filling.

Coffee & cake

Other customers ordered a late lunch and their choices looked very appetising.

The café is fully licenced for you to enjoy a beer or wine with your meal. Perhaps not for breakfast.

Lee, preparing the next coffee.

The café is on a corner and alfresco dining is offered in front and at the side of the café. Several external heaters make the area comfortable when a bit chilly. It is dog-friendly, as several of the alfresco diners had their canine friends with them. They were well-behaved, particularly the dogs.

There are many cafes and restaurants in Warrandyte, but this one would be my first choice for breakfast as their breakfast menus are certainly intriguing.

There is a lot to see and do in Warrandyte and eating is one of them.
