A great little coffee shop in what is now a tram stop in Middle Park.  Tricky to find when you first go there.  It is adjacent Albert Park so there are plenty of walks, they have fresh water and they welcomed dogs.  Really good breakfast and coffees.

That damn cat - T'Gallant

While I wasn’t able to sit beside mum and dad as it is more of a bar outside with the restaurant inside, I was still welcome to wait outside between the cellar Door and the restaurant.  I was quite relaxed about it getting lots of pats until the owner’s cat began taunting me, so towards the end of lunch I was getting a bit stressed.  As mum and dad enjoyed a really good lunch with good wines.

A little hard to find out on Thistle Place but I was given a nice spot to look out over the ocean near where Mum and dad sat in the restaurant.  It was too windy for them to sit outside that day.  I loved the view and we went down onto the beach after lunch for a walk.

What a great view - Time and Tide - Port Fairy

This is ranked as one of the best restaurants in regional Australia and we have been here a couple of times now.  http://www.royalmail.com.au/ .  I get a place near a window so I can keep an eye on things.  The sommelier on both occasions brought water out for me.  3 paws as they didn’t fawn over me but mum and dad loved it.  We stay out at the sheep station about 3 kms from the restaurant.  The accommodation that we stay in is a blue stone cottage that looks out to Mt Sturgeon in the Grampians.  Great walks.

Such a great outlook to Mt Sturgeon
