I'm an Adelaide comms professional and I love to share my dining experiences. Although I'm a vego my husband isn't so my reviews often include his meaty meals.

Harvest Mylor Cafe, in the Adelaide Hills, is housed in a quaint cottage filled with the owner's charm and warmth, which extends from her hospitality to her food.

We sat by the fire in one of several humble rooms and chose from a small but appealing menu of all-day-breakfast offerings plus about five lunch specials on the blackboard.

The waffles with strawberries, honeycomb and cream were tempting but in the end two of us chose the ancient grain salad from the specials, while the other two selected egg-based breakfasts.

I expected a rustic bowl of salad but was pleasantly surprised by the modern plating. The thick line of grains and greens down the plate covered soft and sweet caramelised pears and was studded with raisins and crunchy almonds. Served with a paddadum plus small quinells of yoghurt dressing, the dish had a middle-eastern flair and was moorish and just the right size for me. My male counterpart could have eaten more though.

The coffee was good too, with Veneziano beans and Tweedvale milk producing a strong and creamy latte.

My breakfast-eating friends were very pleased with their dishes too, enjoying perfectly cooked eggs, Mylor Bakery sourdough toast and other tasty trimmings.

A table of homemade cakes couldn't be overlooked after our main meals. We shared a moist and fruity lumberjack cake and a rich, chocolate cherry tart. So many other slices looked alluring that we'll just have to return soon.

The Adelaide Hills are really just a stone's throw from the big smoke but in the distance you travel there, you are transported to such a different setting - peaceful, leafy, clean-aired and scenic, with delicious produce and so many great little spots like this one to enjoy it all.
