Le Café Deli


With a name like Le Café Deli, I was expecting croissants rather than scones in the cake cabinet. Located on the main drag in Burnt Pines, but on the edge of the commercial centre, the freestanding cafe is convenient if you’re popping up from Emily Bay for lunch. Like many other daytime establishments on the island, it shuts up shop by 2.30pm, making it an ideal morning tea venue. The fumes from the fryer sit heavy when we first walk in, but after ordering, keep heading out to the lovely shady garden where you can easily spend a few lazy hours lingering over a meal. The scones are better than average, but with such stiff competition from other cafes, they need to lift their game. Out of the microwave, my scone has a soggy bottom, and the super light cream and very average strawberry jam have a hard job to improve it. Don’t let the scones put you off as this cafe is worth a visit by the looks of the rest of the food coming out of the kitchen.

Scones: teapot3teapot3teapot3

Jam: teapot3teapot3teapothalf

Cream: teapot3teapothalf

Tea: A small selection of tea bags served in a good-sized pot.

Price: $$

Overall: The inviting shady courtyard is a real draw card.
