As far as plant nurseries go, Wyee Nursery is up there with my favourites. Ignore the mostly kitsch giftware in the shop; the cosy nursery is big on personality. Not here are the sterile rows of greenery, but a collection of exotic (does a Venus Flytrap count?) and native plants, flowers of every hue, and healthy herbs. The open-plan cafe is virtually embedded within the nursery, which adds to the convivial atmosphere. I hear some talk of a bird aviary, but I leave that to a bunch of kids who trots off down to the bottom of the nursery. The date and plain scones are fresh, wholesome and more-ish. I choose the pain, but stop at one. Sensational: fluffy with a creamy texture. The Chantilly cream is sweet and slightly overpowers the vanilla beans, but it’s truly an added bonus. The only downfall is the strawberry jam – nothing more than average – but with scones and cream this good, I’m happy to overlook it.
Tea: A small selection of Pickwick silk tea bags served in a small pot.
Overall: A quirky plant nursery serving sensational scones.
