Description: The multi award winning Montania cafe bar restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Nestled right on the edge of the Dandenong Ranges with a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a reputation for great food, service and coffee. Our Chef brings to the table an extensive menu with a twist on classic Italian, complimented by a fantastic beverage list. In the mornings kick back with the daily paper, a creamy latte and perfectly poached eggs. What a start to the day! Best news is on weekends we refuse to penalise late risers, offering an all day breakfast menu, with 2 dining areas to choose from.

Visited here for dinner passing through the area. Started off with the seared Tasmanian scallops which were interesting on the palate served with the cauliflower puree. I moved on to the Argentinian prawns which have a good spicy undertone but are not overwhelming and have a mix of capsicum and onion along with clams . My husband had the Hellenic baked lamb which was cooked perfectly and fell apart when a fork came near it. The feta stuffed peppers were a good accompaniment to the lamb. Dessert was churros which were dripping in chocolate sauce. The staff were friendly and not intrusive and the service was quick. There is a fairly extensive drinks menu as well as some favourite cocktails. We will definitely return if we are in the area.

We decided to have brunch here as we had heard such a lot of good things about Montania, we were not disappointed, the tables outside were lovely , the staff were friendly and charming, the food was well worth the drive , and the owner (George) is a fantastic guy who loves what he does.
I would recommend that you make the effort to go eat here as it is well worth it.
We will definitely go back (next time we are over from the UK)
What a brilliant place

This busy little cafe is one our favorites for brunch or lunch. Food is always beautifully presented and equally delicious.
It can get very loud inside but there are plenty of outdoor tables as well. Great if you have a pooch, and you can even grab a doggy treat at the nearby pet store.
