FOOD?

Homely food made with organic produce results in tasty meals. All items on the menu looked appetizing but I thought it would be a good choice to try the ‘Award winning pie’ which was definitely a winner. I could not get enough of the tomato relish and was contemplating purchasing some to take home with me. We found the pork belly on the ‘Specials’ board and it was cooked well but probably not that substantial it would have been more filling if it came with something more than beans.

We were spoilt for choice with the variety in the cake display, it took me several minutes to decide what to choose. Loved the muffin soaked in lemon syrup, we devoured it!

SERVICE?

Even though the restaurant was busy, the service was quick and attentive.

AMBIENCE?

A small cafe which appeared very popular with the locals as well as passersby. Customers are busy chit-chatting, reading the paper and sipping on their coffees.

VALUE?

Good value for quality food. There are also products for sale in-store such as the Mount Macedon Kitchen relishes, chutneys and preserves (prices from $10). These can also be purchased online as per below.

BOOKINGS?

You probably don’t need to book if you’re just going with one other friend but if you’re planning to go with a group then it’s best to call beforehand as the restaurant is quite small. We were on our way to visit Hanging Rock and when we walked into the restaurant it was at capacity but we were lucky as a table vacated just in time.
