There are still a bunch of classic American-style diners dotted around the countryside going by the name of Paragon and Niagara. The Right Bite Cafe is not one of these, although it could be if it still retained its 1954 grace. There are plenty of nostalgic photos lining the walls displaying the good ole days, or you can read about their story in the menu while you wait! When I first arrive at the cafe and enquire about the scones, the barista is quick to point out that they are baked on the premises. Does that mean the other cafes along the Windsor Street strip serve scones that aren’t? The scone arrives way before my weak pot of tea, and I feel a little silly staring into my plate waiting for liquid refreshment. Although, it does give me time to inspect and I find the scone a bit dry and heavy, like it’s made from wholemeal flour. It’s not bad, but not what you would expect from a homemade scone. The corn syrup inspired strawberry jam has a few chunks of fruit, and although the cream is fresh, it’s whipped in a cream canister, which means – super light!
Tea: A small range of T2 loose-leaf teas served in a small teapot with a piece of shortbread on the side.
Overall: The history of the cafe is an interesting read.
