Elephant Boy Cafe

DT@The Elephant Boy-Bowral#2

I’ve always wanted to go to the Elephant Boy Cafe in Bowral, as it looks intriguing through the window – all those books! Feeling like a library with a cafe embedded within, it has a definite den-like masculine vibe, cosy even. What it has in ambience certainly doesn’t transpire in the Devonshire Tea. The one large scone is more like a bread roll, but what it has going for it is that it’s fresh, light and fluffy. The sachet of Zoosh strawberry jam is not only appalling that it is a sachet, but also that there is only one. Ridiculous considering that the scone is so big. The whipped cream is quite runny and again, not particularly appealing. Although the teapot is a good size, the cup and saucer is more basic than what most cafes have these days. It goes to show that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
