Saturday Outing

Today Mr SE and I went on a mini road trip.

We went south of Melbourne to the lovely Mornington Peninsula area (about 50kms out of the City) and on the way back up stopped at this lovely cafe called Lilo in Mornington, near the coast.

Such a great place. I believe it has only been opened since late last year. Lots of accents of green in the cafe. It really worked.

We had a pot of tea each (REAL tea leaves btw! - as Faux Fuchsia would say - 11/10) and shared a sandwich. Great friendly service and lovely little touches - for example the the teaspoons - look - all little vintage ones... so cute..

Photograph below shows our afternoon tea - I love the little milk bottles too (although they may have cribbed this idea from me - see this POST - ha ha!)

The sandwich was DELISH too - very fresh (Mr SE had already started his half before I whipped out the camera!) and I would thoroughly recommend this cafe - gorgeous little vintage touches in a modern setting. We will definitely be back. www.lilocafe.com.au.

  1. Beautiful teaspoon. Wonderful picture.

  4. What a lovely place, love the simplicity of it and the freshness of the food comes across in the pictures, it's making me want to go and make a sandwich.

  5. You two have the loveliest life. Next time I'm going with you.

  6. Oh, I love a proper tea, with sandwiches, heaven!

  7. Now that looks like a cafe I would enjoy myself in. Love the interior and the green colors.

  8. Would love to visit the Mornington Peninsula. Recently my husband and I visited Victoria and did the Great Ocean Road drive for a couple of days. I know realise it wasn't long enough as I would have loved to see Mornington and maybe up to the mountain ranges. Is it the Dandenong Ranges? I will note the cafe down as a must visit when we finally get down there from Sydney again.

  9. Sorry, should have read "I now realise..." My spelling is shocking when I need coffee!

  11. Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work?
    I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

  12. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to
    prevent hackers?
