Description: EATERY... Fresh, Handmade and Full of Flavour Follow the trail through our sunny café atrium to reach the Blue Mini Eatery, offering a delicious range of breakfast and lunch choices either indoors or in our landscaped al fresco dining area. Our Eatery is the perfect place to bring family and friends for a lazy, all day breakfast or to unwind with colleagues over a long lunch and a glass of wine. Soak up the retro ambience of our spacious, iconic location in the heart of Rosebud. Our menu features fresh, locally sourced ingredients which we prepare ourselves to ensure our flavours capture the essence of the Mornington Peninsula. Take the time to have a chat with the friendly Blue Mini staff about other great local attractions, or pick up a clever and quirky gift from our upmarket emporium, which features rotating market displays by local artists, craftspeople and food and wine producers. Free WIFI available. Our outdoor garden area is doggy friendly and features an edible herb garden where we grow fresh ingredients for our kitchen. Enjoy a cold beer or perhaps a refreshing herbal tea from our own unique range of blends. EMPORIUM... Retro, upcycled, imaginative and clever - you will find a distinctive range of unique giftware and market products at the Blue Mini Emporium, to make your trip to the Mornington Peninsula a memorable one. We have carefully selected our range of kitchen and culinary themed giftware to complement the menu and ambience of the Blue Mini. We seek out unique, eclectic gifts for our upmarket emporium which you won't find anywhere else. From your table in the eatery you can browse through our giftware or talk with local market exhibitors. EVENTS... Blue Mini is the perfect meeting place for your next event on the Mornington Peninsula. With seating for up to 100 guests we can provide professional service and a tailored menu for business events, group functions or weddings. See our website for more details.

I enjoy Blue Mini.

We can always get a table. I have always managed to find a spare paper to read.

The service is quick. The coffee is good. The meals tasty.

They have a children's menu which the children can colour in,

There are a couiple of couches in the back for a comfy seat while drinking your coffee with friends.

It can get a bit noisy when it is full.

I always try to give people the benefit of the doubt when I first experience average service, but upon returning, the staff were still very stand-offish and unable to have a banter, the coffee lukewarm at best (despite asking for a hot latte after experiencing the temperature at the first visit), and a very simple lunch turned complicated when, ten minutes after ordering, I was informed that I couldn't have a salad, because they didn't have the ingredients, despite three floor staff working, a near empty restaurant, and a Safeway less than a 2 minute walk away.

Disappointed.
