The Quirindi Coffee Pot

DT@Quirindi Coffee Pot#

Quirindi, a quiet country town west of the New England Highway is even quieter on a Sunday morning. But, the most important business in town for me, The Quirindi Coffee Pot, is open for trade. Sitting on the pavement enjoying what little traffic there is, is a tad more interesting than the narrow cafe inside. There are plain and date scones on offer, and you can choose between half or full serves (1 or two scones), which is a great idea if you are after a snack rather than a meal. I go with the date variety, and it is surprisingly good. The scones are tasty, with chunks of dates and are fresh and fluffy. It’s so good that I wish I had ordered the full serve. Unfortunately the let down is the packet of jam, and although the cream is freshly whipped it’s pretty light. Love the tea cosy. I’ve tried 250 plus Devonshire Teas and this is only the third place that puts tea cosies on their teapots. Daggy for some? Maybe so, but it tops it off beautifully! Be sure to check out the quirky coffee percolators in the window.
