The Vale Cafe


The sign on the wall reads, “There’s no Wi Fi, talk like it’s 1994”. I love it, but I guess not everyone would see the humour in it. Decorated in French provincial style furnishings, The Vale Cafe has a warm fresh feel and is an ideal spot to catch up for a chat, but a nightmare for those looking to use free Wi Fi. The scones are baked fresh this morning and are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The quince and apple jam is one of an interesting selection of housemade jams on offer, and is perfect in consistency and flavour. It’s splendidly served side by side, in the same dish, with super thick cream. The only downfall of this pairing is that it’s designed for one, not for sharing, so we have to ask for a refill. The teapots are small and don’t hold much water, and we barely siphon out two cups of tea. You know the service is good when you don’t have to ask for a refill.




Tea: A varied selection of T2 loose-leaf teas served in iron Japanese teapots.

Price: $$

Overall: A bright corner cafe serving quality fare.
