Went here yesterday for breakfast but unfortunately the food did not live upto expectation. The menu tries to be different and quirky as does the cafe it's self. I had ordered an iced milk drink hoping it would be similiar to a milkshake but it...More

Starting your day here for breakfast ensures your day won’t get any worse. The “milk drink” is literally just milk? Bizarre place.

Took a friend here for breakfast with my wife and our 2yr boy. Please explain why the farmhouse breakfast cannot have poached eggs (fried only) when others have the option? My other 2 adult guests had dishes with poached eggs, but poaching 2 more eggs...More

Let the atmosphere, friendly staff but burgers were very average. Came out cold and not very tasty. Coffee good, they roast on premises.

Absolutely beautiful food, great atmosphere, love the mixed and matched seating. Great idea to have the shop just there too, not so great for the wallet, but there is amazing local products.

Ideal for a breakie/brunch on your way to Portsea. Only artificial light inside that may be a bit disturbing for some. But the unique atmosphere of the Blue Mini highly overcomes it.

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.
