I am an academic living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne has to offer. You can also follow me on What's my DNA at https://travelfamily65.wordpress.com/author/travelfamily65/

Excellent coffee in Gippsland

This cafe which sits in the sleepy village of Meeniyan is definitely worth visiting if you are in the Gippsland area, perhaps on the way to Wilson's Prom. You will not regret it and your stomach will be thanking you for quite a number of hours even after you have left Moo's.
Moo's at Meeniyan is a restaurant and cafe located in the picturesque, small township of Meeniyan, South Gippsland, just 10 minutes from Leongatha and 1.5 hours from Melbourne. If you travelling to or from Wilson's Prom, you will appreciate a stop here to enjoy great coffee, delicious food, local wines and hospitality at its best.
From the moment you walk into Moo's and past the big spoon, you will feel welcome and very much at home. Moo's has that effect on people.There are tables of various seating configurations, both inside and outside. There is also a bar where you can look out, sip your coffee and inspect the gifts on the shelves opposite the small bar. Whether it's for a big group get together or a romantic breakfast for 2, you will most definitely find just the spot to stay a while and enjoy all that Moo's has to offer.
The menu, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, offers wholesome, local food with an emphasis on Gippsland produce. Farm eggs with bright yellow yolks, Gippsland cheeses, farm fresh salads will give you enough sustenance to tackle some of those more challenging Wilson's Prom walks. You can find breakfast and lunch dishes here and dinner(Friday and Saturday nights) specials here.
Please note Moo's is taking a well-earned holiday and will reopen on September 1st, 2017, just in time for lovely spring weather and food.
I've visited a few times and whilst I loved their food, the cafe always seems to be plagued by flies. I spoke to the owner about it and he just shrugged and said there was nothing he could do, and that all cafes in the town had the same problem. We haven't been able to bring ourselves to eat there again.
