Second visit to New Norfolk last week and I thankfully remembered this place from our travels last year. It didn’t fail to impress the second time around!
We stopped for some coffee and cakes, our son had a colossal strawberry milkshake - my only wish here would be that a child-size portion could have been provided as $5.50 for a three year old’s drink is a bit excessive, but alas I didn’t mind helping him to finish it! It’s value for money for the portion size but would be nice to have a half size for $3 or something, just a suggestion. I did ask but was told only one size available.
Our cakes were divine, my latte coffee served in a huge glass as it should be and amazing quality.
And then the decor! This needs a review all of its own as it’s incredible. A step back in time to numerous eras - there is a kitsch and eclectic collection of vintage sewing machines and 70’s sideboards. 60’s mixers, and aprons from the 50’s. The furniture is so funky throughiut! A great selection of reading material too - I picked up a great book about Herbs (which I’m now trying to buy online as I only glanced a page or two!) and the Mr found some good mags. Each seating area is divided into a quirky section and I wish we’d been staying long enough to try each one!
We sat by the window, being that it offered a retro little high chair seat for miss 5months and she adored playing with the beads on the chair which, at a guess, was made in the late 60’s, maybe even before! So cute!
There was even a basket of toys for our toddler which always goes down well, thanks for that Mrs Cake Lady!
I used the restroom to the rear of the property and found yet another exciting area of seating, I can imagine it being beautiful to sit outside with a book in the summer surrounded by all the fascinating oddities :)
Hope to revisit the next time we’re New Norfolk way, I could spend a day just shooting all the artefacts and thoughtfully set out space.
5 stars all the way! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 See less
