I first visited Wayzgoose Cafe four years ago to try their infamous flower-pot scones, and I’m happy to say that today they’re still on the menu and as popular as ever. The 1950s vintage inspired cafe, booths and all, has a prime spot on the main drag in Leura’s busy shopping precinct and does well to offer something a bit different in a place oozing with cafes. Wayzgoose Cafe is housed in the former home of the Federal Printing Works which operated until 1980 when it was subsequently fitted out as a cafe. Its quirky name represents roots to the buildings printing past and to food, but I’ll leave it to you to read about the rest. The scone is baked and served in a mini ceramic flowerpot and is ginormous, but I reason it’s like eating two ‘classic’ scones. The scone is a bit heavy; my buddy saying it tastes quite floury. The berry jam is slightly runny and the cream errs on the light side, but it definitely deserves a five-out-of-five for its cool presentation and you’re crazy if you don’t give it a try – it really is something quirky.
Tea: A good and interesting variety of loose-leaf teas.
Overall: A funky flair to the classic ‘Devonshire Tea.’
