Located in the heart of Geelong on one of our liveliest streets, Backyard Cafe has become a local favourite, renowned for their silky house brews and a colourful all-day menu that builds on the classics.
Boasting fresh local produce sourced from Geelong and the Surf Coast, Backyard Cafe pride themselves on creating dishes with seasonal fruit and vegetables to provide high quality, delicious, and affordable meals, with all-day breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner available.
Picks include their mouthwatering hot and spicy Portarlington Blue Mussels (with your choice of garlic, chardonnay or napoli sauce), the Beast Breakfast, complete with bacon, sausage, Grilled tomato, hashbrown, spinach, mushroom and avocado, and the special Backyard waffles with white chocolate ganache, berry compote, and ice cream.
With the vegan dining scene exploding over the last few years, the Backyard has earned a reputation for serving up some seriously delicious eats for those that are true blue vegan or a veg-inner. Highlights from the menu include their Vegan Kentucky (made with Faux Chicken, vegan cheese, vegan mayo, sweet chili, red slaw and Smokey BBQ sauce), Vegan Smashed Avo (with Pomegranate molasses, smashed avocado, dukkha, balsamic glaze, cherry tomatoes & Sourdough), and even a Brunch Bowl boasting Quinoa, grilled Tofu, Broccolini, spinach, cranberries, Almond, Dukkha and lemon dressing. Our favourite is the healthy and completely vegan Granola served with fresh strawberries, coconut yoghurt, berry compote and almond milk. Mmm, yum!
There’s even freshly made chocolate bliss balls (which are completely vegan and gluten-free) which you can pick up on the run.
With a fresh and flavoursome menu, this joint truly embodies comfort food goals so grab your friends and tuck into some backyard goodness.
Backyard Cafe is located at 188 Ryrie Street, Geelong and is open seven days from 8am.
