In Ballarat, get your Axil coffee fix from Yellow Espresso or go retro at Eclectic Tastes. Nab a rooftop spot for the best views in town at Castelmaine's 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.
