After cycling part of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail into a strong head wind, I’m ready for a Devonshire Tea. Slipping in to downtown Wangaratta’s Hahne’s Kitchen is easy as there is plenty of parking nearby even though the town is bustling. The cafe interior is simple and the shady outdoor area on the footpath is pleasant in fine weather. The scones sitting on the counter look scrumptious. They are fresh (even at 3pm) and have a creamy texture. There’s are a choice of apricot or mixed berry homemade jam so I choose the apricot, which reminds me of the apricot jam I make at home. The cream is whipped thick, which makes the whole combination delicious. If you have time, it’s worthy of a diversion from the Hume Freeway.
Tea: A basic range of Madura tea bags served in a small teapot.
Overall: A simple cafe in downtown Wangaratta serving killer scones.
