West Beach Bathers Pavilion

A tearoom with a modern twist
The West Beach Bathers Pavilion occupies one of the most desirable locations in Melbourne: right on the sand at St Kilda's West beach. Advertising itself as a restaurant, bar and tearoom, the Pavilion is casual and laidback, with the main drawcard being the proximity to the shore. Beach chairs, loungers or tables on the wide shady deck are often crowded, while the large indoor seating area is much quieter.

Its relaxed atmosphere and big open spaces make it popular with families. Kids can play in the sand in full view of their families, instead of having to sit quietly at the table. The off-leash beach also draws plenty of dog-owners.

[ADVERT]Open from 10am til sunset Monday to Friday and from 9am to sunset on weekends, the menu offers breakfast until midday, then an all–day menu with a Mediterranean influence. Light meals include dips with Turkish bread, saganaki, grilled prawns and baked sardines, (around $14 – $17) while larger meals include standard Aussie beach favourites like fish and chips, beef burger and seafood linguine ($24 - $28). A kids menu includes grilled chicken or fish and chips.

The 'Tearoom' offerings hark back to the building's 1920s beginnings, with old-school desserts made on the premises. Selections change daily but might include bread and butter or sticky date pudding, vanilla slice, lemon tart, scones with jam and cream, apple strudel or passionfruit cheese cake, all around $9-$10. Milkshakes, spiders, smoothies and hot or iced chocolate or coffee are also on offer, along with a gelati bar.

The Pavilion lends itself well to a relaxed, sunny afternoon with kids, grandparents or even your four legged friends.
