Top cafés in Yarra Ranges

June 14th 2017

As voted by the Fletchers Yarra Ranges office

Well known for the wineries and spectacular views, Yarra Ranges attracts people from all over Victoria, whether it’s for a day trip, country getaway or a real estate move. Putting aside the views and wineries, the cafés in the suburbs surrounding the Fletchers Yarra Ranges office also hold a special place in the staff’s heart, with the friendly small-town-feel and delicious food that is sure to satisfy the fussiest of food cravings.

Fletchers Yarra Ranges director, Scott Allison explains, “Yarra Ranges has such a variety of cafés and restaurants. From fine dining at Wild Oak, to pub meals at the Pig and Whistle, Kellys, Dudleys, or Micawber Tavern, while getting breakfast and coffee at Brunch, Ranges or Mount Dandenong Deli – this area has everything you need!”

Although it’s hard to pick one, the staff at the Yarra Ranges office have each narrowed down their favourite place to eat or grab a coffee, and what they love to order when they’re there!
