I recently passed through Berry on a road trip down the South Coast of New South Wales. Before making the trip, I scanned the blogging world for any pit stops worthwhile along the way and there were plenty of good reviews for the Berry Sourdough Cafe.
It was clearly a popular spot judging from the constant line at the door and after stopping there for a long lunch, I think its popularity is well deserved.
The cafe itself is in a cute cottage like building off the main street of Berry. There is both outdoor seating on the verandah and indoor seating in the spacious interiors. We were happy with our seats outside on the cool summer day. I was feeling a bit lazy and didn't take many pictures - here are just two photos of our mains.
We also had the lemon thyme and honey panna cotta served with local rhubarb and pine nut praline for dessert, washed down with coffee.
By the time we finished eating and wandered inside for a peek at the bakery counters, we were disappointed to discover that pretty much all of their baked pastries and cakes had sold out for the morning. As it turns out, they have a sister bakery located on the main street of Berry ("Milkwood Bakery") which we also popped into and there were many baked goods available there.
The Berry Sourdough Cafe was a fantastic find and I am so grateful to the internet and other bloggers for leading me there!
