Anyway.. apart from the weirdness of the road, the cafe is housed in a charming heritage home, it has a whimsical, old-world, rustic charm about the place. The front yard is packed with chairs and tables all different shapes, sizes and style. We were given one of the ones inside. There were 10 of us. We had a large wooden possibly jarrah but definitely vintage design dining table. One side of the room's wall was filled up to the ceiling with a collection of red wines from around Australia. The whole room felt like a family dining room, perhaps minus the collection of wines and possibly more deco and better lighting in a family's home.
The service at the Harvest wasn't brilliant as the waiter mixed up our coffee orders, was a little flustered and the food didn't come out until at least 45 minutes after we ordered. We forgave them as they were rather busy and we were happy to keep on chatting, that was until we got really hungry.
But the food, when it came out, it was beautiful, well worth the wait (to a degree). The aroma was fantastic, the serving portion decent (if not the healthy portion you should be consuming), the presentation was as nice as possible for breakfast food.
Avocado, tomato, spinach and fetta on toasted bread
- looked deliciously fresh and healthy
The Huevos Ranchos - a spanish breakfast
The tomatoes were refreshing start to your day. The eggs done to perfection.
Souffle cakes, poached quince, chocolate mousse
- Deliciously sweet and the perfect fluffy pancakes
Creamy corn, polenta hashbrown, poached eggs and silverbeet
Good mix of creamy corn, perfect eggs, cheesy hashbrown with a hit of zest.
B's “The Freo” scramble, mushies, spinach, tomato, breaky potatoes with extra bacon
- delicious traditional breakfast
Everybody was so happy with the meal and completely satisfied and with it being on the entertainment card, the food being fabulous, the problems of finding the place, parking and somewhat absent minded waiters (although he was so pleasant), it was a great start to the weekend - a hearty satisfying breakfast (and coffees/teas) with great company (the two most important things - food and company!)
