Willows Lounge Grill & Cafe

DT@Willows Lounge Grill-Tradies Gymea

Of the three Tradies establishments in the southern reaches of Sydney, Tradies Gymea is the second location I have visited for scones. It’s the south Sydney answer to an RSL and with all the usual; restaurants, gambling, kids play areas, and even an Endota Spa! Willows Lounge Grill & Bar is your typical ‘club-style’ eatery. Cavernous and generic, the cafe is open throughout the day. However, outside of the main dining hours, it feels more comfortable to sit in the more slightly ‘cafe-style’ section that’s outside of the main dining room. This section overlooks reception and has glimpses of daylight from outside. It’s a basic spread with the large scone more bread roll than scone. The strawberry jam is passable, and the whipped cream from a canister, feather light.

Scones: teapot3teapot3teapothalf

Tea: A small selection Sir Thomas Lipton’s teabags served in either a cup or a small teapot.
