Having spent a few days recently in Healesville, I visited Harvest Cafe on a couple of occasions. Its a regular stop for me when passing through for take away coffee in a hurry. The coffee is always good, staff friendly (although can be a little less friendly when busy) and the place has a great atmosphere. Breakfast on the first day was fantastic. Perfectly cooked scrambled eggs, nice toast, hot, arrived quickly, everything that you want in a breakfast. A great start to the day....lingered over a 2nd coffee and enjoyed the sunshine in the garden.
Breakfast on the Wednesday was less successful....Zucchini fritters....barely warm, raw in the middle, cold grilled zucchini and the poached egg i requested with the dish was well and truly boiled and hard. Not enjoyable at all and such a let down following the previous day. They were busy and seemed understaffed. The staff were obviously not enjoying themselves. No sugar, salt or pepper on the table, coffee took forever and then arrived with no crema and looked as if it had been sitting for a while before it reached my table. Luckily for them, its hard to be in a bad mood when you are sitting soaking up the sun! This place has all the ingredients to be wonderful....its a shame that it can be so great one day and so poor the next.
