If you’re searching for the archetypal, relaxed, Australian beach suburb café then the re-emergence of South Beach Project, opposite Mount Martha South Beach is a stand out. With first-rate food, top-notch coffee and thoughtful service, it’s no wonder this café has made a big splash with many locals’ ecstatic that breakfast and lunch for this iconic spot is back on the radar. Going out for a brunch of avocado on toast and a perfectly brewed flat white is a weekend ritual for many down Mt Martha way but the eclectic menu also includes dishes such as Fried Noodle Omelette, Mexican Grain Salad, Cauliflower Cous Cous & Korean Fried Chicken Burgers. As a region, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to exceptional cafes and South Beach Project fits neatly into this bracket.
