Melbourne is abuzz with New and Noteworthy Good Eats!

Sugar Shack Donuts

Sugar Shack Melbourne Strawberry Glazed Donut

Melbourne is a charming area and a favorite spot to spend time exploring locally owned restaurants and shops. The tree-lined streets and shopping arcades offer a variety of interesting and one of a kind boutiques and restaurants. You won’t find chain restaurants and big box type stores. Strolling the streets is like taking a step back in time. Established in the early 1800’s the community is nestled along Crane Creek and the Melbourne Harbor. Many of the original buildings are restored, repurposed, and house thriving local businesses.

Take a walking tour of the downtown historic.

Downtown Melbourne

Gateway to Historic Downtown

Historic Melbourne offers an opportunity to experience some of the best fresh local food. There are plenty of restaurants to satisfy even the pickiest pallets, and we’ve got a few new additions (favorites) we’d like to share. If you’re going to leave the beach and travel to the mainland, the destination ought to be:


  • Sugar Shack Melbourne: Donuts and coffee made the right way sourcing local fresh ingredients, hand rolling and cutting donuts in small batches. Too many yummy flavors to chose just one.
  • Roots Hashery & Boutique: Comfort food on steroids. Breakfast lunch and dinner and the perfect spot for brunch! Shop and dine satisfying two wonderful passions.
  • The Mansion (updated with a twist): New owner, new chef and new line up of wine and spirit tastings. The historic Strawberry Mansion is an iconic fixture just off main street. The view from the deck overlooking the Indian River will take your breath away.
