I’m surrounded by sketched pictures of John Wayne, Ned Kelly, Clint Eastwood, Elvis Presley and a whole bunch of other famous folk I fail to recognise, while watching a group of 60-somethings huddle around the life-like Elvis statue in the corner for photos. Mountain Blue Cafe Springwood, attached to a gift shop and real estate agent, is relaxing quiet today, apart from the Elvis fans. Although I’ve tried their other property in Glenbrook, I’ve decided to see how the Devonshire Teas rate here. I’m not disappointed with the scones as they are simply amazing! Soft and fluffy with a creamy aftertaste, even the slight crumbling doesn’t bother. The jam is average and the cream, although fresh is a tad too light for me. A convenient stop off on the Great Western Highway if you are heading down from the mountains towards Sydney.
Tea: A small selection of teabags served in a small teapot.
Overall: If you’re feeling a little nostalgic for Elvis…
