Well here is a REAL hidden treasure. A round shaped treasure! The Bagel Store is a little slice of heaven in the side streets of Wantirna. As the name suggests, bagels are what these guys do best. The menu may be simple, but the combinations are endless, as you choose your bagel base and then your toppings. You might stick with the simple or classic combinations of jam or even Vegemite OR you might pimp your toppings and go with pizza, the salmon or a smashed avo variety! Don't forget to leave room for a sweet dessert at the end. The rainbow bagel topped with sprinkles are the kids favourite.
The cafe is a converted milk bar and there are still some groceries on the shelves. They do a mean coffee, have some more pastry and cake treats in the cabinets, and takeaways are nice and quick. Ticking more boxes is the kids zones. An indoor play corner with toys, plus a backyard complete with outdoor dining plus a trampoline and swing set. Mamma is guessing the kids will wanna be back here REAL soon!
Mamma's special mention: There are a handful of great little street parks in this residential area, but for a more substanial play, head to Templeton Reserve.
