There’s nothing we love more on an autumn afternoon than going for a cruisy drive into the Hills, and exploring all the cosy cafes the area has to offer. Here are seven of our favourites:
Cafe Mojo has all the quirky charm you hope to stumble upon on your next day trip. Eclectic furniture and artwork fill the homey space, plus there’s a charming garden you can enjoy. Just picture yourself, perched under the shade of a Norfolk pine, making use of that free wifi if you need to catch up on emails. You can even bring your dog! The menu has plenty of gluten and dairy free options as well, so you can rest assured there’ll be suitable snacks for everyone.
The Packing Shed
Situated on the picturesque Lawnbrook winery in Bickley, the Packing Shed ticks all the boxes. The standout, seasonally rotating menu is worth the drive alone, but when paired with the gorgeous setting, it’s worth its weight in gold. In winter you can get cosy next to wood heater, but if the sun’s out you can also make use of their picnic blankets and spread out on the lawn. Next thing you know, you’ll be staying for a wine tasting.
Taylors in the Valley
Converted from a family homestead, Taylors oozes artsy charm. Also home to an art gallery and studio, their rustic grounds are the perfect spot to while away an afternoon. The menu not only features heaps of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-friendly options, but also champions local producers, with a strong focus on sustainability and waste-reduction. Family and pet-friendly, kids can explore the gardens while you relax under the shade of the gum trees with your pooch. What’s not to love?
