The dynamic blackboard menu at Merenda is derived from the very best produce that is available that week, either from local farmers & producers, our own garden as well as the highest quality ingredients from around the world.
Our local farmers and producers are small in their scale, and mighty in their dedication to best agricultural practices with a focus on land regeneration, biodiversity, eschewing the use of chemicals and (most importantly) deliciousness. We are extremely proud to work with the following artisans & farmers:
Mt Franklin Organics
Dairy Flat Bakehouse
Wombat Forest Farm
Long Paddock Dairy
Chooks at the Rooke
Butterfly Factory Cheese
Gung Hoe Growers
Pig & Earth Farm
The beating heart of Bar Merenda is a carefully curated collection of wines that has been amassed by owner Andy over his many years in the world of wine. The collection starts with a large selection from some of Victoria’s finest artisan wine producers both established and emerging. From here there is a wide range of bottles from the great regions of Australia, France, Italy, Germany & Spain.
In addition to the wine list, we also offer a constantly rotating selection of wines by the glass, beer, cocktails, aperitivi and digestivi.
