Feel-good Eatery in Berry NSW
If by chance you are on a road trip or a simple day trip to any suburbs down the South Coast or Southern Highland regions of NSW, then Berry is a town you should take a detour to, and for good reason.
There is a little gem at Berry and this place is called the "Berry Sourdough Bakery and Café". After a 2 hour drive from Sydney you may want to consider a little break for a good breakfast or lunch.
Old Charm Building of Berry Sourdough Bakery and Cafe
This café is located just one block away from the heart of Berry town. From the outside, it is an attractive rustic barn-like building. The inside space has a homely and cosy feel to it. I really like the décor, the native flower arrangements and how they present their fare in such a fine way. Everything just coordinates so well with one another.
As the name suggests, Berry Sourdough Bakery and Café is also famous for artisans of handcrafted and organic sourdough. I could see many locals stopping by to get the freshly baked bread with supplies running out rather rapidly. By lunchtime, the shelves are almost bare, but never mind, as you can order the sourdough bread from the menu as the side dish to compliment your meal.
The food on offer is absolutely delicious and on taste, you can feel that the chef is paying particular attention to his ingredients, their freshness but more importantly the overall palate experience provided to the customer is guaranteed. The main menu has a number of European inspired dishes which may change from season to season.
On my latest visit, I went with my family so we were able to sample a wide selection of food from the main menu as well as the savoury pastries and cakes that we chose from the cake display area. We loved the food so much we ended up going back to Berry twice within a month!
Recently, they have introduced their sister shop called "Milkwood Bakery" at 109 Queen Street, the main street of the Berry. The Milkwood Bakery is more like a place where you can get a great take-away coffee and some sweet and savoury goodies to take home. Milkwood Bakery opens 7 days a week from 7am to 6pm.
