Fabulous Food At The Peninsula Pantry

Looking for a fabulous cafe with great coffee and fresh, healthy food?

We love the Peninsula Pantry located in Wondaree Street –  a residential area in Rye.

This converted general store has been open since 2007 and is tucked away off the tourist path – but it’s well worth a visit!

Choose from the muffins filled with custard, vanilla slices and pastries with your Gravity coffee.

Then give yourself a night off cooking and grab some of their take away salads, lasagnas and pies.

With everything made on the premises (except for the bread) the Peninsula Pantry offers a huge range of gluten free and vegetarian options.

The Peninsula Pantry’s breakfast and lunch menu has locals and visitors packing the small cafe.

There’s a couple of tables out the front with fresh bowls of water for dogs.

The friendly service and welcoming staff make the Peninsula Pantry a must-visit cafe when you’re on the Mornington Peninsula.
