Dynamic duo, Pino and Josie Ballerini, have breathed new life into aptly named, Full Turn Kitchen Bar in Sandringham. This husband and wife team are the previous owners of such successful enterprises as Lava in Balaclava and Bella Sistas in Camberwell and know how to provide customers with a moreish dining experience. Pino makes you feel right at home, greeting you with his fun and energetic vibe and Josie ensures that your food is delicious!
The Sandringham cafe at the bottom of the Sandy Hill complex on Bay Road offers a delectable menu with generous portions. The Panzanella, a poached eggs and house-made ricotta concoction, and the Mexican Bean Bowl, are among the most popular dishes, and daily specials like the Sweet Potato Scramble don't disappoint.

Interiors are warm and cosy with artwork by local artists on display, staff are warm and friendly, and the outside deck is a must when Melbourne weather is in good form. And importantly, the coffee is great!
