2Blondes Cafe

DT@2Blondes Cafe - Springwood#

I know it sounds strange, like something from an American mid-west movie, but I swear the people of Springwood are a happy bunch. This is only the second time I have bothered to divert the two minutes it takes from the Great Western Highway to this lower Blue Mountain hub, and I am pleasantly surprised. It feels nothing like the upper mountain towns, which are equally part tourist and part local, and nothing like from the plains of Sydney down the road, well at least not where I live on the lower north shore. It’s hard to describe, but I feel such a happy vibe that it feels kind of weird for me, everybody seems to be ‘smelling the roses’ rather than rushing from appointment to appointment. There are quite a few cafes in town, but it’s best to find them on foot as they are tucked away, like 2Blondes Cafe. On a drive by, I would have missed it as Michel’s Patisserie overshadows the cafe. I take a seat outside in the arcade, although there are a few tables inside, so I can enjoy the warmth. The scones aren’t on the menu, nor are they on a cake stand, and it’s just by chance that I notice ‘scones’ scribbled on the blackboard. They arrive slightly soggy on the bottom (I think they are from the freezer) but taste creamy and are soft and made of good quality products. The strawberry jam, a bit more please would be nice, has junks of real fruit and the huge pot of thickly whipped cream is superb!

Jam: 

Cream: 

Tea: A selection of loose-leaf teas served in a decent-sized teapot.
