my mum was nice enough to take the kids and I out to a birthday lunch today at Miss Marple's in Sassafras. For years I've been wanting to go there, imagining this grand cafe serving a variety of teas and cakes however it is actually quite small, seating only around 40 people in a kitchen/dining sized room. Along with the space, the menu was also quite limited but there were a couple of yummy sounding items to choose from and luckily they also served kid's meals (nuggets & chips) which kept the littlies happily anticipating the arrival of their order. Mum and I shared some Welsh Rarebit (my first time and not all that exciting), some ham, chutney and cheese toasties and coffee. For afters, we all shared a piece of chocolate pecan fudge cake and it was absolutely scrumptious!
After the initial shock of its quaintness and the surprisingly prompt arrival of our order, the handy phone cam came out and I snapped these pics to share.

And another thing - you have to get there exactly on 11am to get a seat or go on a waiting list! Although we weren't overly impressed with the savoury dishes, the coffee was great and that chocolate cake was a winner so I would definately head back there for morning or afternoon tea.
