Some come for the coffee, some for the light. Others come with the kids, the paper, the dog, sometimes all three. But they all come for the view. We’re lucky, because Parkdale Beach Cafe & Kiosk, on the site of the former Parkdale life saving club, has one of the most beautiful beach-side locations on Port Philip Bay. Whatever you come for, or whoever you bring, you will enjoy good food and friendly service, sharply priced. The view, which changes with every tide, every sunset and sunrise and is never less than breathtaking, comes free of charge.
