Making donuts rebellious since 2018
Donut bars have started cropping up around Melbourne and I'm not here to complain. The Mornington Peninsula is the home of many, many tourist attractions, and Rebel Donuts is now setting themselves as not only a local favourite but the perfect spot for 'out of town-ers' that need to try a taste of the Peninsula.
After a much-anticipated opening in January, 2018, Rebel Donuts has since teamed up with local businesses on the Peninsula such as Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm, and another local favourite dessert connoisseur, Peninsula Cookie House, for one of the best dessert collabs this side of the bay has ever seen.
Rebel Donuts is a fantastic place to take the whole family. While the seating area is relatively small, there is a children's area of the store, so you can enjoy a coffee and your donut in peace as your child enjoy's a donut (they have special novelty donuts too - the unicorn is a favourite in our house!)
Rebel Donuts has also taken it even one step further, with Donut Cakes available at the store, taking celebrations to a whole new level. And there are not just sweet donuts either - they offer a selection of donut inspired food, such as the 'breakfast donut', which is filled with bacon, Japanese mayonnaise, and your choice of Chilli Jam or Relish.
If you check out their website, donut decorating classes are held throughout the school holidays - but be quick, because these book out fast! Donuts can also be delivered around the local area, so there is no need to miss out if you can't get into the store!
