This gorgeously sweet Templestowe cafe opened its doors in December 2010 to locals’ delight and has been proving a hit ever since. The focus is on fresh, organic, green food (ie, environmentally friendly, not mouldy!) and the cafe has a homey, country-style vibe to match, all fresh flowers, neutral tones and natural materials. Owner Lisa Crawford has made sure everything about the place is as organic as possible and prides herself on it leaving the tiniest carbon footprint it can.

The leafy terrace is a lovely spot for a morning or afternoon cuppa, and the breakfast menu is hard to pass up, with goodies like Brookfarm muesli with natural yoghurt and fruit compote, Zeally Bay fruit toast with specialty jam and a pretty amazing crepe with hazelnut spread and berries. Wow.
