Two Beans and a Farm

Today we drove out to Mernda for lunch at a lovely little cafe / restaurant called Two Beans and a Farm. It is an old restored blue-stone homestead, on a property just next to the Plenty River that is also a community garden.

The food was beautiful (I had a chicken, mushroom and leek pie with a char-grilled vegetable salad, followed by a bread-and-butter pear pudding), the coffee was good and the waitresses were delightful. I was very impressed by the way they looked after the little girl of some other customers who had been running around bare-footed on the grass and got stung by a bee.

Suburbia is definitely encroaching, but “the mob” don’t seem to mind.

So, if you’re looking for somewhere nice for lunch in the north-west, I would highly recommend “Two Beans and a Farm”.

Still not feeling like running or riding, but raking all the leaves off the front lawn, and mowing and edging the front and back was enough exercise for today.

    You made me want to go there. Actually, I forgot, for a minute who’s blog I was reading and was thinking this was near Seattle and making plans to go next time we’re out that way! Now I’d love to come to Australia, but it’s not in our near plans! Glad you had a lovely day. Hope you feel better soon.
