Kid-friendly dining along the Mornington Peninsula coast
Heading down the coast to the Mornington Peninsula with your family this summer? Wise choice. The stretch of beach between Mornington all the way down to Sorrento is stunning and there are plenty of little towns to stop over and spend the day. Dromana is one such hot spot.
Dromana is a small town with a lovely beach. Home to one the remaining few Drive-In Cinemas and plenty of cafes, you could easily spend a day in Dromana soaking up the summertime Peninsula vibes.
With any summer hot spot, you'll find most of the cafes and restaurants bustling with people along Dromana's Point Nepean Road. Head into Pier Street just around the corner from the main strip and you'll find Pier Street Kitchen, a Middle-Easten influenced eatery that is exceptionally welcoming.
Pier Street Kitchen has a modern-contemporary feel yet is very much kid friendly and offers an interesting and varied menu.
Menu choices include all-day breakfasts with zucchini & chickpea fritters, ham hocked baked beans and "bashed" avocado on sourdough. Lunches include falafels, lamb sliders and Middle Eastern fried chicken. Although my son opted for a very simple vegemite on toast, kids can choose from lasagne, falafels or mezze boards if their tastebuds wish.
Pier Street Kitchen is a delightful stop for a lazy breakfast or lunch. Please do pop in if you're in the area.
