In sleepy south coast Ulladulla; The Treehouse Cafe is so much more than a cute shack under a couple of ancient shady trees. Brightening up a bland concrete corner in a shopping centre car park, The Treehouse is more Byron Bay than south coast NSW, and is a true stand out. The menu has a healthy spin with lots of fresh juices and wholesome food, and healthy raw desserts and treats. ‘Byron style’ cafes (as I like to call them) typically don’t go down the scone alley, so I am thrilled that The Treehouse caters to everyone from vegans to DT loving folk. And just like the rest of the cafe’s menu, the DT errs on the unique side. It’s a scone meets a muffin in a flowerpot, filling and always a novelty. It’s paired with superb tart mixed berry jam that tastes homegrown, and chilled thick Chantilly cream with just the right hint of vanilla. A big tick for the proper teacup and saucer, contrary to popular belief, tea drinkers do appreciate it and tea tastes so much better. Pick up herbal teas and eco-friendly products, and maybe a vegan treat for the road.
Tea: An unusual range of health orientated teas.
Overall: Wholesome food with a south coast spin, and the novelty of eating scones from a pot, and the garden…and…and…need I go on?
