"Aspendale- The place to be in Bayside Melbourne that has the country vibe"

Having grown up in Aspendale especially near Taylor Avenue, I got to say it is amazing of what you can get living in Aspendale when it comes to summer days nothing beats heading down to the beach for a dip before coming out and enjoying a late dinner most of us locals would go for Fish N Chips down at Laura St or Pizza Boys down at Station Street for pizza....or even Gracys Cafe in Laura St for brunch Aspendale's unknown secret when it comes to best sandwiches and coffee
