Road trip breakfast

Stopped here before doing the Great Ocean Road for some breakfast. Good coffee, good food and lovely wait staff.

Pros: Adjustable menu, Range of dairy free milk, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Could do with more exclusively vegan options

A great find on the Great Ocean Road, Australia

We were travelling along the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay and nearly missed this cafe restaurant, so glad we didn't miss it.
Common Ground Project is a great initiative and their food is freshly cooked with ingredients from their farm.
We enjoyed the best potato pizza we have ever had which was a daily special - very thin crust, very very thinly sliced potatoes, feta (but you could ask to omit the feta if vegan).
We sat outside in the sunshine (under the shade of an umbrella) but there are also plenty of tables inside.
Staff are welcoming and attentive and obviously committed to the ethos of the restaurant.
A great find!

Pros: Great location between Geelong and Anglesea/Aireys, Excellent vegan and veg dishes sourced from farm

Cons: None but maybe could stay open later in pm?
