TRAM ROUTE MAP EAST BRUNSWICK – ST KILDA BEACH:

On Monday, the 17th of August, 2015, we were still in Melbourne.

After Peter and I  had seen the movie “Last Cab to Darwin” in the KINO in Melbourne, it was our plan to get to the Monarch Cafe. We knew that TRAM 96 would take us there to ST KILDA.

Somewhere in the city we got unto the 96 tram. We soon found out it was not going to St Kilda but to Brunswick. This meant we had to get off the tram and catch a tram into the other direction. The trams come along every six or seven minutes. So we were soon on our way towards ST KILDA. There are several stops within ST KILDA. We were not sure where to get off. Somehow the Canterbury Road stop looked to us like the right stop. Wasn’t that the corner where Acland Street was with the Monash Cafe just around the corner. we thought. It turned out we were wrong. There was no Acland Street. It took us quite a while and a lot of walking before we found Acland Street and the way to our chosen cafe. When we finally made it, we had some yummy cake and coffee. Next time we know we have to get off at Belford Street, just one stop before the terminal.

In April 2013 we were in Melbourne. Martin and his daughter Lauren went with us to ST KILDA.

    I bet the unexpected exercise gave you an edge to your appetite so the coffee and cake were even better!

      Oh yes, Cat, we were very happy and exhausted when we finally found this cafe. That yummy Polish cheese-cake and coffee were very welcome indeed.
      When you go to the Monash Cafe link at the top of this post you can have a good look around this curious little cafe. Their cakes are famous and baked on the premises behind the cafe. 🙂

    Do they sell herrings too at the Monarch Café? 😉 We are back from our Queensland journey and the warmer weather was lovely. Now we are back and brrr.

      It’s strictly a cafe for coffee/tea and home baked cakes. 🙂 No herrings, Gerard. Welcome back from Queensland. I am sure it is soon going to warm up a bit in Bowral.
