If you are arriving in Glen Innes from the south, its hard not to miss the giant Super Strawberry sign on the right hand side of the New England Highway. The little cafe/giftshop sells all things strawberry and then some. The trays of fresh strawberries laid out on the counter smell wonderful and make you want to buy kilos of them. If you’re in the market for some jam, there are shelves of them plus chocolates, free-range eggs and trinkety giftware. Sit inside in the cosy cafe or outside under the trees in warmer weather, or do takeaway. I’m a little disappointed when my Devonshire Tea arrives. The plastic plate and knife, and the paper takeaway cup is a dead giveaway that visitors drop in and stay just as long as it takes to pick up strawberry supplies. A shame for those who want a more permanent experience, as the cream and jam are top-notch. They are so good that I could happily just eat the two mixed together. The scones are better than average but with more inferior jam and cream the slightly over-microwaved flavour would be more evident.
Tea: A small variety of teabags served in a large takeaway paper cup.
Overall: A handy stop to pick up super fresh strawberries.
