Pickers Cafe & Collectables

DT@Pickers Cafe & Collectables-Rutherglen VIC#

A former gold mining town, Rutherglen now sits smack bang in the middle of award-wining wine country. Easily accessible, it’s just over the border from New South Wales, therefore handy to the Murray River and Albury/Wodonga, and easy enough for a diversion off the Hume Highway. The town centre is lined with mid 19th century heritage buildings, which is typical of many towns in country Victoria. Picker Cafe & Collectables is down one end of Main St. Look for a few umbrellas and tables set up out front for fine weather dining, and there are several more inside amongst the collectables. Although the scones are large you may not be able to stop at one. They are oven fresh and slightly crispy on the outside. The rich raspberry jam is excellent, and the divine double thick Chantilly style cream has just the right amount of vanilla bean folded through it. While waiting, be sure to check out the second-hand goods and vintage collectables. Closed midweek.
