By the looks of it, Mogo Ice-creamery & Outdoor Cafe seems to have established itself in a former retro service station. With a lick of paint and lots of shady seating in the front garden and where once vehicles pumped fuel, the cafe is a comfy spot and a handy people-watching podium. The blackboard at the entrance announces what flavour of scones are in the house and today it’s plain, apricot and ginger – impressive, although I don’t know why I have to pay an extra dollar for the privilege of having two different flavours. Maybe it’s due to the extra jam as the plain scone arrives with strawberry and the apricot is matched with apricot jam. Sweet. I love the creativity in alternate offerings (it doesn’t happen enough), and apricot fans will love the chunks of dried apricot. In saying that the scones are a bit floury and heavy, and the cream fly away light.
Tea: A variety of loose-leaf teas served in a good-sized pot.
Overall: Nice shady outdoor area to watch the world go by.
