Coffee is hero a Café Meccanica, a tucked away café that  can proudly claim to brew the best caffeine in Warburton. Genovese Coffee is the preferred bean and perfect crema the fuel of the day.

Once a garage, owners Sam and Kyall have created a light airy space that is unique for its range of motorcycle memorabilia – from café racer to dirt bike, with an original Evel Knievel pinball machine adding to the cool nostalgic air.

Fill up the tummy from the range of light snacks – toasties feature local artisan bread and ‘Fat Mumma’ condiments – all reasonably priced from $4.50. Succumb to sweet treats with panforte, biscotti and home made muffins and loaf cakes which go the extra mile.

The sun-filled outdoor seating area, also known as the ‘driveway,’ boasts a northerly outlook over the pristine Yarra River and the natural beauty of Mt Donna Buang. It’s a wonderful place to linger and check out the steady stream of motorcycles that drop in before tackling favourite rides such as the Reefton or Black Spurs. Café Meccanica has a friendly vibe that has everyone talking. And the locals love it.
