Whether you’re commuting into town or suburban bound, there are plenty of food and coffee options surrounding Moorabbin station.

During peak hour, join the queue of caffeine seeking office workers and tradies at Caffe Locomotiva. Grab a coffee to go or one of Peter Nguyen’s specialties; fresh Banh Mi. Peter says the popularity behind Café Locomotive’s Vietnamese pork rolls lie in a secret ingredient – a scattering of pork crackling.

Following the morning rush, the café keeps busy serving lunch to the locals and preparing afternoon snacks for local school kids. Peter’s family also runs a popular bakery in nearby Mordialloc.

If you’re in the area a little longer, the very popular Sandwich Point on Station Street serves a broad selection of lunch. Think Turkish rolls, stuffed capsicums with pine nuts and fetta and spinach triangles. You can even borrow a charger for your tablet or phone while enjoying a Duke’s coffee from the cherry red La Marzocco espresso machine.

Across the highway, Café Sana keeps the locals happy with a steady supply of caffeine and smoothies on Saturdays while directly opposite the town hall, you can find retro-inspired fish and chip shop, City Hall Fish and Chips. It’s the kind of place that evokes memories of the fish and chip shop you frequented as a kid and you know it’s good when they throw in an extra potato cake.
