Port Fairy: Part 1

We visited Port Fairy on a weekend in the middle of the Winter, when it was too cold to go to the beach or hike through the nature parks. We did some sightseeing by car, but the rest of our time was spent eating. Not a bad way to spend a weekend!

Our favourite foods that we tried were the pizzas at Coffin Sally (see below), as well as the desserts at Clonmara Tearoom (Part 2 of this blogpost will be about the Tearoom). Brunch at The Farmers Wife was alright. The takeaway Thai curry from Lemon Grass was decent, but we didn’t get any photos of that because takeaway curry isn’t photogenic.

The Farmers Wife Harvest Cafe

Smaller towns don’t have the same competitive brunch scene that Melbourne has, so their options are more limited. While there are definitely better brunch places in Melbourne, The Farmers Wife was enjoyable enough. The brunch dishes were around the $16-19 mark which is pretty standard, but the sizes were not that big. The service was friendly.

Adventures around Smith Street: South of Johnston, Pop Up Scroll and Gelato Messina

South of Johnston

We were very excited to visit South of Johnston because there were lots of things on the menu that we wanted to try. We ended up getting a pumpkin omelette and the burger of the week (pulled pork), but we look forward to going back to try the French toast, corn fritters and chorizo baked eggs!

Soy iced chai

Wendy ~ I was happy about the strong tea flavour in this iced chai, which meant it had been brewed with chai tea rather than artificial chai latte powder. The soy milk of course wasn’t as creamy as normal milk, but the scoop of ice cream helped to make up for this and to sweeten the drink. Continue reading
