|I found this little place a while back when I went for a walk around the parks of Melbourne. It sits on a beautiful, quiet corner of the Yarra River; an two-story, old-fashioned weather-board building with a balcony looking out to the Yarra River.Next to this is the fairfield park, which is huge with a couple of sport fields for a soccer or football match as well as great scenery for those who one to take it easy and go for a Sunday strode. For those who are a bit more adventurous, there are conoes and kayaks for hiring, which I believe is about $15 and ducks to be fed for 50 cents, just ask Bil. He loves it! With BBQ facilities here by, it is a great place for a relaxing day out.It is open for breafast, lunch and dinner as well as morning and afternoon tea.
|I must admit the only thing we have tried at this place is the devonshire tea/coffee, but it is one very good scones. This coupled with homemade cream and jam, bring warmth to any Winter day.Drinks:
The cappuccino is not too bad, it is nice and strong, leaving the taste in your mouth. The tea, what can I say from a British establishment.
|Honestly I have no idea because my wife pays for it! hahaha… But it is a little pricey though it is not over-bearing, I think it will probably set you back about $10 for Devonshire tea with two scones.|
|No problems here. You walk in to a counter, put your orders in and wait for the order to be made. Simple isn’t it? The service is quick and prompt, so there is no problems here.|
|The Taste Factor Verdict
|Definitely a place for lazy Sunday afternoons, with a nice cuppa of tea and scones, great conversations with friends. Magic afternoon!|
|Last Shout||Definitely one of the best chill-out place for me!|
