Having driven past this café on several occasions I figured it was time to take a chance on it.
From the outside it's deceptively nondescript and easy to miss, but this is a pleasant place to pop in for a meal in Dixons Creek, even if you're in Yarra Glen or Toolangi.
I noticed the place was very clean, which was naturally a good sign. Service was pleasant, and the atmosphere inside was nice, with a little fireplace in one corner of the dining area. The general ambience wasn't very cosy or "country" but effort has definitely gone into the place. I liked the outdoor dining area out the front, though it was quiet & the heaters weren't on when we arrived so we sat inside.
Pricing was a bit mixed, soup was $9 for a small serve but I guess it's probably home made. The chicken parmigiana was around the $20 mark, so good value and definitely good quality. It couldve done with a few more chips to fill up the plate, I wasn't completely full once I'd finished my serve.
Beef lasagne was around $19 but the serving size wasn't much bigger than what you'd get for $6.50 at a take away shop.Again, good quality but guests shouldn't leave hungry.
Their signature burger was indeed also big, and the steak was cooked just right, but $29 is pretty steep!
All in all, if you're not a huge eater then it's certainly worth popping in to for a good quality, tasty meal. I'll probably come back, and most likely to try the Parma and Pot deal which looks like great value, I think it's on Thursday nights from memory.
