I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.

Looking for a Place to Catch up with Friends?
One of the places where we eat out very frequently is in Berwick, called The Main. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and morning/afternoon cuppa or desserts and coffee.

The restaurant recently underwent a management change and the result has been a significant improvement in the quality and variety of food, service and general atmosphere. They only use the best ingredients in the preparation of their meals and it is obvious in the taste of their food. Even on a weekday breakfast/lunch time, the place is often busy if not packed. The indoor area is large enough to accommodate small and large parties of people and often I have seen friends catching up for a birthday lunch. The outdoor area is covered and on a sunny day, the perfect place to sit and have a meal. I am happy to say the place is child and baby friendly.

The menu is extensive with a wide variety for breakfast, sandwiches or mains. The omelette sounded like a great choice, and it came out with beautiful ciabatta.

I love their Mediterranean focaccia, which comes with a generous portion of delicious French fries, although the staff has obliged with an exchange of fries for equally delicious salad.

Their shakes are definitely worth a try too, but to die for is their gelato which comes in a whole range of flavours and each one of them is delicious. Our favourites are pistachio and hazelnut.

Our experience each time at The Main has been nothing less than amazing and each time we visit there, we plan our next one. Based on our personal experience, we highly recommend their wood-fired pizza and gelato. If you are in the neighbourhood, choose The Main as your preferred place to dine. You will not regret it.
