Delightful Afternoon’s!

To-day, after Farmstay activities, Farmer Ken and I took a delightful drive for lunch. We planned on going to The Bee Keepers Inn at Vittoria, half way between Bathurst and Orange, but it was a spur of the moment thing and we didn’t book! – no room in the Inn!  so we continued on to Millthorpe, and were very lucky to get a table at The Old Mill Cafe.

I love these quick little getaways, beautiful short country drives to hidden little gems, with the most delightful food, deserts are definitely the specialty at The Old Mill Cafe.


5/5 for the Apple Pie and  Carrot  Cake – Presentation and service is as good as the food!!

Watching a few families there got me to thinking, what a great thing to do with kiddies between activities, a long enough drive for the kiddies to have a nap, (about 40 minutes), some very special food for parents to enjoy, and a scenic country drive. PERFECT.

For mains we recommend the Beef or Chicken Pies with chips and salad. You are not going to be wanting much for dinner!

Last weekend we zipped off the The Universal Cafe at Tarana.  This is a wonderful little Cafe with the most delightful food, also specialising in deserts! – The flavor, presentation and the size of these deserts are going to make you go “OOOOH!” – AND, another scenic country drive, just the right amount of time to fit in a return trip with scrumptious lunch between activities, and for little kiddies to have a catch up nap. Another 5/5 cafe in the country.
