You've probably taken a spin around Albert Park's gorgeous lake and sunny streets. But did you know the area is buzzing with outdoor parklets and dining areas too? Here's our guide to wining and dining in Albert Park.

Kick off your Albert Park graze with some world-class coffee and divine brekkies. Find a perch at under the pink umbrellas at Lenny and enjoy a robust brew with one of their creative breakfasts, like the spicy prawn omelette, in mood-lifting pastel surrounds. For Instagrammable breakfast plates and a relaxing morning in a lush parklet hit up Fat Albert Café. And for a coffee that rolls into brunch into afternoon wines try the classic fare from Albert Park sleek Dundas & Fausett.

Enjoy the open air over lunch or dinner at some of Albert Park's wonderful restaurants. Fill your tummy with delicious bistro fare from Pony Boy who serve parmas, burgers, tapas, seafood and more from 11am every day. If you're mad about seasonal ingredients you'll enjoy the freshness of Lord Cardigan's ever-changing menu. And for a casual pizza or pasta with accompanying wine hit up Riccardo's Trattoria.

Unwind with a pint or cocktail at one one of Albert Park's historic pubs. For a drink with a side of architectural grandiosity head to The Vincent, you'll find classic counter meals, cocktails and more in the beautiful archway peppered and parquetry-floored interiors. And cap it all off with a brew outside at the chic Albert Park Hotel, the updated historic pub has al fresco dining and drinking and some super-special dumplings to graze on.

More businesses around the City of Port Phillip are open for outdoor dining this summer. Check it all out via the Support Port Phillip page.
