The term ‘Mother Earth’ conjures up thoughts of lentil burgers and carob brownies so when I turn up at Mother Earth Cafe; I find a pleasant cafe and small plant nursery. The yurt type building that houses the cafe is supposedly made out of mud brick and is covered with dirt and grass and a spectacularly placed strip of glass allows a rush of water to constantly flow over the roof dumping its contents in to a pond. Definitely want one of those! It’s Sunday so the outdoor seating area, although extensive, is almost full and I am told that there is a bit of a wait for food. My scones are the last serve available and they come out of the freezer. I should have ditched the mission and moved on then and there but decide to give them a try. The service is friendly but my scones aren’t great, having a slightly unpleasant taste. The jam and cream are very ordinary and the cream light and watery. I must admit the Paddington Tea green tea is lovely.
Tea: A small variety of Paddington Tea (bags) served in a good-sized pot.
Overall: Lovely outdoor setting but I love the grassy roof and waterfall over the mud brick building.
