Still loving the west

Businesses in Melbourne’s west continue to inspire us with their ability to adapt and meet our community’s changed needs.

Our friends at Western Melbourne Tourism know that we can uncover some tasty gems simply by exploring new businesses in our own backyard.

You can help your local community get through COVID-19 by buying local when possible. In doing so, we support our neighbours and contribute to the livelihood of local families.

Here are a few more suggestions, from Western Melbourne Tourism’s long list of favourites in Wyndham, to get you started.

The Social Sutra, Werribee
Have brunch delivered to your door or save 15 per cent when you pick up your order. The mixed berry and ricotta pancakes are our top pick.

The Coffeeologist, Point Cook
Head to this drive-through café window for quality coffee and homemade treats. The Coffeeologist has also started selling a Breakfast Essentials pack for $20 which includes a fresh loaf of bread, 2 litres milk, half dozen free range eggs, two muffins of the day and one coffee. Add 200g bacon for $5, yes please!

The Park, Werribee
You just can’t go wrong with craft beer and delicious pub grub delivered to your door. Pick-up is also available.

Sprinkles Ice Creamery, Lollies ‘n More, Tarneit
Did someone say doughnuts delivered? Yes and sweet treats galore. There are more than 60 ice cream flavours to choose from and local barista, Andrew from 92 Degrees, is stationed outside for your takeaway coffee fix. Indulge your sweet tooth, pop in-store or order for delivery. 

Junior Rangers, Parks Vic
In more normal times, Parks Victoria provide a great range of events for kids to get out in nature and learn exciting new things. For now, they’re providing a range of online resources and DIY activities for kids to discover plants, bugs and critters in their own backyard. 

Wolf on Watton – Werribee
Local brothers James and Nathan opened Wolf on Watton last year with a menu all about enjoying, celebrating and sharing good food. Nowadays, when you and your family are hungry like a wolf, enjoy free delivery (within 5km) or pick up daily from 9am – 8pm.

Quest Apartments, Werribee
Anyone needing to keep safe and self-isolate away from home, can consider the comfortable alternative of Quest Werribee. They provide a self-contained apartment with a customer service team ensuring all guests have consistent access to everything they need, at their door.
