Best Coffee Spots

  • Kremma - In sleepy Tennyson Street, this great cafe does the BEST coffee in Elwood.
  • Jerry's Milk Bar - this is an iconic milk bar that has been around for four decades.  Highly recommended!

Boutique Shopping

  • Ormond Road: the main shopping strip in Elwood has everything you need from boutique shops to local supermarket and lovely cafes and restaurants..

Dining Delights

  • Repeat Offender: with a little bit of a Latin vibe Repeat Offender is vegan friendly and gluten free.

  • Elwood Bathers: One of the few waterfront restaurants Elwood Bathers has views of Port Phillip Bay and exceptional food.
  • Figo Pizza: A classic Italian fried food "friggitoria" combined with pizza and great desserts.

Parks and Recreation

  • Elwood Park and Foreshore: Its all about the beach! Elwood Park runs along the foreshore and includes BBQ and playground along with a picnic area and dogs are welcome on leash.

  • Elsternwick Park: - once part of an extensive swamp area, it is part of the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrung clan of the Kulin Nation.

Arts and Entertainment

  • Astor Theatre: Although not officially in Elwood (but close enough), the Astor Theatre is a grand old cinema that mixes classic film with new releases.

  • The Sunset Cinema: Again not in Elwood but nearby St Kilda and located in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens, The Sunset Cinema is a lovely outdoor experience in the summer months.
