Here are our recommendations for the best bakeries on the Mornington Peninsula. We have selflessly tried and tested cakes and other gorgeous baked goods, just to be sure haha.
If, like me, you are a complete sweet treat addict, then this may be for you. I have a friend who tours around Victoria, with her family, testing out all the bakeries and rating them...and she's a nutritionist, so I feel vindicated in sharing these suggestions. Here are just a few of the bakeries we have tried on the Mornington Peninsula! We will keep adding as we try new ones...it's a tough job!
The Butcher's Daughter - Mornington
37 Main Street, Mornington, VIC, 3931
Hannah is The Butcher’s Daughter!
As the name suggests, her Dad is an expert in scotch fillets and sausages, but my passion is for all things SWEET!
Her Dad's love of fine food inspired Hannah to take her practice of perfecting the humble cupcake, to become a qualified patisserie chef.
Hannah has worked alongside some of Melbourne’s best cake makers and shared my desserts in top cafes across the Mornington Peninsula.
For the past four years Hannah has been one busy baker creating stunning sweets, unforgettable wedding cakes and layers upon layers of birthday delight.
Hannah's cakes are boutique, designed for you, then baked using the best local produce and decorated oh so pretty and oh so scrumptious!
Johnny Ripe - Red Hill
284 Main Creek Road, Main Ridge, VIC 3928
The creators of Johnny Ripe, Adam and Michelle, are both trained chefs originally from a seaside town north of Sydney. After working overseas and running successful businesses in Sydney, they yearned for a quieter pace of life and started searching for an area that would fit the bill. The Mornington Peninsula had a lot to offer and it was here that they found what they were looking for…and a small orchard was the beginning of their well-loved apple pie. There are so many scrumptious, yummy things on the menu, but the cronuts (above) are my absolute favourite x
The Vanilla Slice Cafe - Sorrento
23 Ocean Beach Road, Sorrento VIC 3943
Nestled in main street Sorrento with a limestone façade and old-fashioned charm, the Vanilla Slice Café looks like it’s straight out of the Edwardian era. But the vanilla slice? It’s completely out of this world. One taste and you’ll think your grandma was behind the counter (well, if your grandma made a completely kickass vanilla slice).
