Just back from a gorgeous lunch at the Old Mill Cafe in Millthorpe, this establishment has been taken over by new owners who (unlike the old ones) seem to be doing everything right.
We walked in and the place was humming, luckily I had booked a table and high chair for baby Charlotte and the staff had reserved a spot in the corner for us. The decor of The Old Mill Cafe has that nice quaint feel without being over the top country. The first thing to grab our attention was the array of magnificent (and I mean jaw dropping) cakes, all of which looked delicious and were certainly generously proportioned!
The menu had a good mix of main courses ranging from fish and chips to homemade pies, sandwiches or scallops. I was fully checking out everything that came out to neighbouring tables and in truth, nothing looked bad.
The cafe is licensed so the ideal spot if you fancy a long lunch with friends, we just had hot chocolates which were very good.
I opted for the smoked salmon salad (got to squeeze into a dress this Sunday for the races) whilst Kate had a homemade beef and shiraz pie with handcut chips & salad.
I finished lunch off with a berry and chocolate muffin whilst my friend tucked into a stunning lemon meringue pie that looked like a piece of artwork. This place is a big hit in Millthorpe full to the brim with happy customers, people grabbing take away meals or coffee and those buying cakes for later.
The service was excellent, ambience spot on, music was nice and relaxed and made me want to buy the album and the food was very good and well priced.
Highly recommended for lunch especially as you can browse the shops in Millthorpe afterwards and walk off some calories. Recommend booking to avoid disappointment. Open 7 days - 02 6366 3188.
