Tucked away inside Aminya Nursery off the Newell Highway, The Next Grind Coffee and Gallery is quite a find. With bakers on site there are lots of goodies baked daily and when we arrive there are racks of pies straight out of the oven and yummy looking cakes. Ladies will enjoy the opportunity to pick up some gifts from the range of nic nacs or art on display, or there’s always the nursery outside. I want to try most of the cakes, but opt for the Devonshire Tea, which surprisingly ends up being pretty average. The scone arrives looking like a muffin and also tastes more muffin than scone. The jam is good enough and the cream is freshly whipped but quite light. Closed Mondays.
Tea: Liptons tea bags served in a good-sized teapot.
Overall: A chilled out cafe with a range of tempting goodies.
Location: (Inside Aminya Nursery) 3 Castlereagh St (Newell Highway), Gilgandra NSW 2287
