With a name like The Shaggy Cow, why wouldn’t you check it out? The Shaggy Cow is another bright and light quality Mittagong café endeavoring to entice travellers making a beeline for Bowral or Berrima. It’s buzzing the lunchtime I drop in, but there’s plenty of room in the large space, including the seating out the front and in the alleyway for warmer days. There’s no set Devonshire Tea on the menu, so you can order as many scones as you like. My scone is delectable: soft, fluffy and with a creamy texture. Just as well, because coupled with the rich double thick cream, you barely notice the very average strawberry jam. Brownie points for the warm and friendly service, as it keeps out-of-towners feeling warm and fuzzy.
Tea: A good range of loose-leaf teas served in a teapot.
Overall: A vibey cafe.
