Perk up, this Bellarine cafe is celebrating two years in business with $2 coffees on Friday

The Grove Coffee Co is celebrating its second birthday with cheap, expertly brewed coffee.

If you’re looking for an excuse to hit the road and explore Ocean Grove, The Grove Coffee Co has you covered with its second birthday celebrations this Friday, October 28.

Renowned for its great quality coffee, simple but quality-driven food, and an ethos of friendly, light-hearted service driven by a want to please, this little gem is slinging $2 coffees and birthday cake all day on Friday to commemorate two special years. We recommend heading in early though if you’re after the cake as this down to earth coffee shop is a clear favourite for locals and travellers alike.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting The Grove Coffee Co before, now might be the time.

Two years ago, Dominic Rushton, originally from Hobart, pieced together a space and hub for locals and passing travellers to slow down and experience a slice of community in his newly born café just off of The Terrace in Ocean Grove.

After studying law for two years in Geelong, Dom says he was after a life change, and following his passion in quality coffee, decided to open his own space, where he could offer what he loves, to the community he loves.

“For a long time, coffee has been a passion of mine….and we are so privileged here in Victoria, to be surrounded by such an amazing café culture, that it seemed like a natural step to take.

“Being born and raised in Hobart, I’ve always felt most comfortable in small tight-knit communities, and with my love for the ocean, Ocean Grove seemed like the ideal fit for me.”

The Grove Coffee Co: The new local spot for great coffee in Ocean Grove

Brought together by DIY hard work and  passion for the little things, Dom has cemented The Grove Coffee Co as a staple within the community, offering fast, delicious coffee and gourmet toasties in the heart of Ocean Grove. The coffee and food that Dom supplies is largely locally sourced, a product of being in an area with such a vibrant food culture.

What’s better, all your four-legged friends are more than welcome here, with hooks in the ground for leashes, bowls and house-made dog treats at the ready.

Swing by and wish Dom and his charming cafe Happy Birthday on Friday. With Mikro Coffee on pour, you won’t regret it.

The cafe is located at 2/85 The Terrace, Ocean Grove and is open from 6:30am Friday to Tuesday.
