Rodney’s Garden Cafe

DT@Rodneys Cafe - Plants Plus, Piliago ACT

Rodney’s Plants Plus is your typical 21st century garden centre. There is plenty to peruse including a vast selection of plants, flowers and herbs, basically anything green and living for the garden is on offer. Let’s not forget everything needed to help the garden thrive and of course, the cafe. Garden shopping is hunger-inducing work, right? All comings and goings is through the home and giftware store, and good luck in leaving empty-handed! Rodney’s Garden Cafe has indoor, outdoor, and shaded eating areas, and a plethora of nooks and crannies for diners. During inclement weather indoors is recommended, as shade cloth doesn’t hold back the rain. The scones are sensational: delicate, and oh-so-fluffy and feather-light. The miniature jam jar of strawberry jam is cute, but the jam is nothing better than the average jam served in cafes. Additionally, we might like our scones super light, but the cream? It’s a definite no-no. The fresh cream from a cream canister looks tidy, but is way too aerated for the DT Guide. The sprig of fresh mint leaves is a fitting garnish, considering we are at a garden centre.
