Best Coffee Spots in Phillip Island
While you may come to Phillip Island for some much needed rest, relaxation and wind down time, coffee is still a necessary for many. Located just 2 hours from the coffee capital of the country, Melbourne, Phillip Island is stepping up their coffee game with a huge range of local cafes to choose from. We’ve put together our favourite coffee spots around town, make sure to stop by a couple on your next trip to BIG4 Phillip Island Caravan Park.
The newest spot in town, G’Day Tiger is set on a corner of Cowes’ main street only 30 seconds from the beach. Wanting to give locals a taste of the Melbourne coffee scene, the owners have decked out the place with concrete benchtops and plywood walls, setting it apart from Phillip Island’s longer-standing shops and restaurants.
You will find weekly rotating beans sourced from guest roasters across Melbourne, our favourites are Seven Seeds and Wood and Co Coffee.
If you’re feeling peckish, they offer a delicious range of freshly made sandwiches featuring their signature “Tiger” sauce. We can’t go past the Reuben!
