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.
Tea: A range of Highland Merchant loose-leaf teas served in a teapot.
Overall: A sweet garden centre with a French inspired cafe.
