I don’t remember Bulahdelah looking so slick. I swear the town is looking better every time I visit, which is random and not very often. It’s abuzz with travellers stopping to stretch legs and grab a bite to eat. With several cafes to choose from as well as the pub by the river, I can understand why it’s so popular. I’ve only got time for one Devonshire Tea so I choose the attractive Myalla Magic that is in fact a handsomely renovated timber house with a verandah and shady garden out the front. The interior rooms have been kept intact as to give it a cosy vibe, and privacy if you have a big group and want to take over a room. It’s a warm day so I sit out on the shady verandah that wraps around part of the front of the building. Tasty and fresh date scones are on the menu today: crispy on the outside with a perfect soft texture on the inside. The jam and cream are quite average, and the cream is so light (it’s a hot day) that it melts before settling on the scone. If you need a break, Bulahdelah is the place!
Tea: A selection of teabags served in a small pot.
Overall: Gorgeous renovated timber house with a lovely garden.
