Wake up to country-fresh breakfast spreads and lazy morning coffee from family-owned cafes and bakeries in interesting settings, such as a cave-like café located in a gem shop, or a dining room in an iconic old brick former flour mill built in 1881. For parkland views with your brunch, take a short stroll from the Albury Botanical Gardens to the River Deck Cafe on the banks of the river.
Award-winning bakeries abound in The Murray region - try a locally-sourced Bunbartha beef black angus gourmet pie from Brereton's Bakery and Coffee Lounge or a famous Wagon Wheel from Holbrook Bakery, which has been feeding locals from the same spot since 1899.
Visit Strathy Hot Bread Bakery in the heart of small-town Stratherton, serving up baked goods for the last 30-odd years, or pick up award-winning packaged coffee beans or a reviving cup of freshly roasted espresso coffee at Coffee Mamma.
Time your visit right at That Little Place to try out a craft workshop, or simply browse local artisan produce and one-of-a-kind crafts while you're waiting on your sweet treats. For a healthy meal or snack, head to Modern Natural in Swan Hill to fill up on salads, soups and salted caramel smoothies. Or, cool down by the river at the Mildura Docksite Café after some fun on the water in a pontoon boat, paddle board or pedal boat.
