Frankston has been longing for a taste of the iconic Melbourne café scene for some time. In 2016 – that all changed when The Milkman Café launched on Kananook Creek, bringing with it a commitment to speciality coffee and the ultimate food lifestyle experience!

The best. design to life multidisciplinary design team were approached in early stages of the project to provide end-to-end designed experience services. This included site selection and assistance with lease negotiation, interior design, construction project management as well as operational model consultative advice.

It also extended to total brand development that integrates seamlessly with the interiors and every touchpoint was considered by our team. best. design to life continue to provide branded content services through management of all Milkman social media.

Sitting on Watersedge below the South East Water headquarters, The Milkman Café has struck a chord with fans since its opening in December. The fully transparent inside, outside space in its idyllic location overlooking Kananook Creek (with direct access to the beach) is the new place to be around town.

Food, family, coffee, sun, the outdoors and the peninsula… this sets the equation for how The Milkman was dreamed, designed, built and now a place for everyone on the Mornington Peninsula to enjoy.
