A fresh new face for a local, Italian family café and of course our famous vanilla slices.

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN ITALY TO A MT MARTHA CAFE

In the original corner store known as MPH Café, and now three generations on, 88 Craigie Road, Mt Martha is the new home to Donato est. 1980.

A fresh new face for a local, Italian family café.

We have created a unique meeting place for our local community and regular visitors to the Mornington Peninsula.

Coffee has become part of a daily routine for so many of us and we are proud to have Coffee Mio as our supplier of choice – of course, every cup being made with a whole lotta love.

We continually strive to deliver food, service, and coffee of the highest standard, offering all day breakfast and lunch served daily.

So, if you are planning a trip to our beautiful backyard on the Mornington Peninsula and looking for a change of pace from Mornington Main Street  –  imagine this…. A bustling, red brick café, light streaming in through the floor to ceiling glass sliding doors overlooking the lawn.

And if you can’t decide on just one dish from our menu try our house speciality Breakfast Tower to sample a selection.

Spacious indoor and outdoor relaxed seating areas to enjoy our food & coffee.

Pooches welcome (on a lead of course!) and room for the kids to run on the grass.

House Specialty – our popular Breakfast Tower.

Fresh local produce – all grown on site.

We are a little different here, (in more ways than one!) providing weekday workers and tradies convenience and access to grab a coffee or a bite on the run and a more chilled relaxed weekend approach for all day brunch or a wine while lazing on the lawn.

And don’t forget to grab your fresh local produce – hydroponic lettuce, herbs and tomatoes grown on site, free range eggs, Baker Boys breads, take away lasagnes, sauces and Italian groceries before you head home.
