Le Jardin Cafe

DT@Le Jardin Cafe - Tahrmoor

The Tahmoor Garden Centre is tucked away off the Old Hume Highway and unless driving past or actually looking for it, you wouldn’t know it was there. It’s a compact garden centre with the attached Le Jardin Cafe a real treat. Sit out on the timber deck or inside where decorations lean toward a French influence. The scones are stupidly fresh and fluffy, and I am guessing not long out of the oven. The good quality raspberry jam is tart rather than sweet and my only gripe is there just isn’t enough to go around and I could do with a smidgen more. The whipped cream is super thick, bonus, but has a strange texture, almost like mock cream, although I’m assured it isn’t.

  1. We are regulars to this cafe, the scones are a favourite. The cream is fresh double cream, can’t understand why you think they have a mock cream texture. Mock cream feels slightly gritty to me.

    As a fan of Devonshire Teas, I always enjoys your reviews – great suggestions for stop offs during my travels.

    • Hi Gary,

      Thanks for letting me know. On the day I went, it definitely wasn’t double cream (like a smooth dollop cream) but a super thickly whipped cream. It was so thick it reminded me of a kind of mock cream – that’s all.

      Anyway, the Devonshire Tea there is fabulous!

      Cheers and thanks for reading.
