Two Oaks Cafe

dttwo-oaks-cafe-somerset

The Two Oaks Tea Room sign grabs me as I hurtle along the Bass Highway, which is named after the waterway it hugs. However, when I arrive, I find it’s no tea room, but a cafe with a large extension that caters for events such as weddings and the like. The lack of tea room cosiness aside, the cafe does have a lovely garden and the Somerset Caravan Park that it fronts doesn’t interfere with the ambience. Bass Strait and the Australian mainland are on the other side of the highway, so not too far for a stroll to a beach. Choose from plain or date scones, which are served with rich raspberry jam and thick whipped cream that tastes more mock than fresh cream. I go with the plain scones. They are large and have certainly reached their microwavable limit erring on the chewy side. No doubt more raspberry jam would help mask this. Open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
