Tonic gets my vote opposite the beach at the bottom of HMAS tower. Where else can you get your hair washed at the basin while sitting in a massage chair overlooking the beach. Saw a dolphin from there once.
Great mags, coffee, even a glass of bubbly from next door if they are open. Oh, and great staff and haircuts - a hidden gem off the main drag, so don't tell anyone!
Imperial Crest on Bay Street is fantastic. They serve not only coffee on arrival, but a frosty beer as well for those who want to relax even more. Fantastic service.
Marlene at The Mane Man is wonderful and so well priced! 397 Bay St, Port Melbourne - 9646 1201
