What People are Saying

“A great find”

Beautiful views on the water and excellent service. Our meals were served promptly and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Great stop after a morning walk on the beach.

“A must visit”

Visiting Melbourne? This is a fantastic place to right on the waters edge. Have coffee or buy one of the many delicious hot or cold food items sitting in a nicely furnished cafe by very nice people.

“Best beach dining in Middle Park”

Perfect place to pop in for a drink, meal or coffee – lovely staff, food and amazing setting, you can spend a few hours or the day on the beach then pop in for a drink or something to eat.

“Awesome views great food”

Went back to Sandbar for breakfast and once again it was fantastic. Coffee is great and service is exceptional. Perfect setting on a lovely day and I can imagine it would be just as nice on a rainy day. Highly recommend.
