Whether you are entering or leaving the Southern Highlands via Robertson, it’s worth to stop and poke around this unassuming village. The revamped Three Creeks Cafe now trades as Rockabellas Roadside Diner and I’m happy to report that they are still pumping out killer scones. The large corner cafe has a slight 50s rockabilly theme, with some fun vintage furnishings – think Formica tables, an old ice fridge etc., and some vintage fittings. The diner is part cafe and part shop, and has a corner of shelves dedicated to vintage kitchen collectibles, and in another section, new rockerbilly-style clothing and accessories. Rockabellas rock cool 70s and 80s tunes, but don’t expect booths – it’s a booth deficient diner! The scones are still insanely fluffy and feather light, and the rich mixed berry jam and double thick cream are perfect accompaniments.
Tea: A few varieties of loose-leaf teas served in a pot and with a china teacup and saucer.
Overall: Funky vintage hangout with a rockin’ theme.
