"A hidden village gem, and great coffee!"

Were St Montmorency, is the local shopping village. It is hidden away from the main roads, you have to look to find this gem. It is only a short street, but one which contains a great collection of shops.

For great coffee, try the Were Street Food Store about halfway down the hill. If you are lucky, you will get a great piece of art on the top of your coffee. A great barista is in residence, ask for a special piece of art! MUDD at the top of the hill has great pastries, as well as lunches available.

There is a newsagent in the old cinema building, a supermarket which has all you need, and a fantastic butcher at the bottom of the hill. Fruit shops, clothing, party supplies, several bakeries, and multiple takeaway shops abound.

If you are into beadmaking, there is a great shop at the top of the hill. Also a Thai Restaurant, a bank, Post Office, Hairdressers, Dentist, Milk bar, kids clothing and toys, and a Video store.

At the bottom of the street is the station, with good access to Melbourne CBD. Have a look at the new landscaping on the corner, which combines water storage with a simulated dry creekbed.

A great place to enjoy lunch or a coffee, and you can sit outside on a sunny day. Come and enjoy!
