Highlands Merchant


The best seats in the house at Highlands Merchant are definitely the two comfy lounge chairs in front of the picture window. The timing is right and we slide into still warm seats, thankful to the friendly folks who notice our look of despair when faced with a full cafe. This prime perch is an envied position as it gives and all round view while retaining exclusivity of the window. There are a few outdoor tables if the weather is fine, otherwise hope for the best at this popular cafe. The feel is modern and fresh, with clean lines and white and blue decor. There are some lovely features, like the round wall mirrors hanging from leather straps and the water fountain at the back. If peckish, order a couple of scones, as they are divine; crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside – perfection. The tart berry jam is coupled with rich double thick (and then some) cream and comes together in the same bowl, like the yin and yang of condiments. Shop for Ovvio teas and Southern Highland condiments while you wait.




Tea: An unusual and refreshing range of Ovvio organic teas served in a good-sized pot.

Price: $$

Overall: Elegant and ‘oh-so-Southern Highlands’!
