Went to Montania two nights ago after not going for a couple of years due to poor menu choices. I'm glad we gave it a chance again and happy to see a new chef and a new menu with variety more suitable to all tastes. I had South American chicken and hubby had fish of the day which was lemon...

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.
