Soak up the local village atmosphere in cosy cafes dotted around the region's historic towns. Watch the roasting at work at Bendigo's Brewhouse Coffee Roasters, go Mediterranean at El Gordo and find your favourite corner in Percy and Percy. In Ballarat, get your Axil coffee fix from Yellow Espresso or go retro at Eclectic Tastes. Get serious about small-batch micro-roasted beans at Castlemaine's Coffee Basics or nab a rooftop spot for the best views in town at Togs Cafe.

At the wineries

For a different type of outdoor dining experience enjoy a meal overlooking the vines at a local winery restaurant such as Merindoc, Balgownie Estate and Flynns in the Heathcote region, or Bress Wine Cider and Produce in Harcourt.
