Stretched out along the beach front road you’ll find a stunning range of captivating shops, there’s quirky opp shops, mouth-watering eateries, little boutiques, and must I mention the IGA supermarket – voted as the best in Australia. (Trust me, it’s worth the visit). And most importantly, cute little coffee shops where you can immerse yourself in a delicious short macchiato or soy iced latte.

Tucked away in a back street in Dromana, you’d need to be in the know to stumble upon
Wombat Café. But can I tell you, once you’ve found it, you’ll be returning time and time again! This vegan café brings a whole new light on food; veggie- sceptics take note: this place doesn’t sacrifice on the flavour. Their menu is as large as their servings (which will keep you full all day long), from tofu scramble, burrito wraps, banana pancakes and vegan nachos. Plus if you fall in love with any of their food and wonder how they made their amazing vegan feta, you can purchase the products in store from their mini grocery store. Bonus!

If you’re a late riser and love a cruise morning, take yourself down to Bass Surfboards, located in the Dromana industrial estate.

And best thing is they’ve added a little coffee shop as well! So you can sip on a warm brew while you stroll around the store admiring the brands or joining in on one of their craft days.
