Brewer's Table is a 'foodie-jewel' of Seymour, located opposite the train station on the main street. I had been to Brewer's Table a few times before and had never been disappointed by the creativity, freshness and presentation of the meals.
We were welcomed by a warm smile. There for a Friday luncheon, our meals were delivered quickly. My Roasted Pumpkin, Feta and Walnut Salad was enriched with high-quality ingredients and was neither over-flavoured or over-complex. The colour of the roasted pumpkin was a vibrant testament to product-freshness as well as to the artistry of salad creation. Brewer's let the quality of fresh and locally grown produce speak for itself. I couldn't resist tasting my companion's Creamy Prawn and Scallop Fettuccini which again was delicately balanced so that the fresh, succulent and perfectly cooked melt-in-your-mouth scallops and prawns were the heroes of the dish. At $15.50 and $19.50 respectively, Brewer's is a cafe-restaurant combo-style eatery, with plenty of cheaper meal selections if all you want is a snack or pick-me-up lunch on your way through Central Victoria. There is always a soup of the day for around $12.50 and entrees and side dishes start from $6.50. All main meals are priced under $25.00.
Carmen Fifield, Brewer's owner-operator, has designed a modern and varied menu and everything including the popular cakes and biscuits, is made onsite. For dessert, I couldn't go passed the Lemon Tart ($8.50) which was full of home-made 'zing', although other fan-favourites such as the Raspberry Custard Tart pitched hard for a return visit! There are gluten-free cake alternatives, as well as biscuits if you just want a sweet note to compliment coffee. A latte starts at $3.80 and there are other hot drink options which do not exceed $4.50.
