Far enough away from the traffic banking up on the Princes highway and close enough to the Riverside Park and Moruya River, The Blue Heron Cafe is easily missed if you don’t leave the highway. A block or so from the riverside, its handy position and quiet surrounds make it an ideal rest stop. There are only a few tables outside, so it’s first come first serve, otherwise there are enough inside the split-level cafe. The two country-style scones are a bit burnt on the bottom today, but nonetheless they still have a robust wholesomeness about them. It’s always a pleasure when a cafe has made an effort and served some homemade style jam, and although the raspberry jam is on the runny side it’s much appreciated. The fresh cream is meltingly light, out of a whipping cream canister I suspect. The cafe gets busy when the Moruya Country Markets are on, literally right across the road, every Saturday from 8am.
Tea: A range of organic loose-leaf teas served in a pot.
Overall: Tucked away cafe conveniently located near the Riverside Park.
