G’Day Tiger is a new cafe set on a corner of Cowes’ main street only 30 seconds from the beach. The owners are wanting to give locals a taste of Melbourne’s coffee scene. It s clear just from looking at the place. Melbourne-style concrete benchtops and plywood walls set it apart from Phillip Island's longer-standing shops and restaurants.
You will find weekly rotating beans sourced from guest roasters across Melbourne. Filter coffee is served both hot and cold, while those seeking espresso can choose from a Seven Seeds blend or Wood.
More than just coffee, there's a host of sandwiches. Look out for the Reuben: beef pastrami, sauerkraut, pickles, swiss cheese and “Tiger” sauce.
