You can’t miss Flamingo’s Cafe on the main street of Murwillumbah. The huge blackboard sign on the footpath advertises their homemade scones and is a surefire way of attracting scone lovers. The pink interiors and little flamingo statues outside are a nice touch too. The weather is balmy on the NSW north coast so take advantage of the outdoor seating. To be honest I didn’t expect much, but I am so surprised by the quality of the scone that I don’t even mind the average jam and cream. Brownie points to the tea cup and saucer, the better than average teapot and the lovely little strainer for the tea.
Tea: A selection of loose-leaf teas served in a good-sized teapot.
Overall: An unassuming café in downtown Murwillumbah.
Location: 91 Murwillumbah Rd, Murwillumbah NSW 2484 Ph: 02 6672 5492
