Located in Blackwood near Wittunga Botanic Garden, Hillbilly's Café is a good place to grab delicious Australian-style café foods. This restaurant is very popular with the locals. There was a large crowd present when we visited during the lunch hour. We were lucky to be able to get a table.
While the Hillbilly's Eggs is technically one of their breakfast dishes, you can enjoy it at any time of the day. The scrambled eggs were light and fluffy and the chorizo imparted its smokiness to the dish. The addition of tomatoes and a topping of rocket leaves helped to add a bit of freshness to the dish. Served with the eggs were slices of toasted Turkish loaf.

One of the various hot dogs available, the continental smoked Frankfurt Sausage in their Mexican Hot Dog had a delightfully smoky taste. The generous amount of the café's bean salsa and chilli topping gave the dish a wonderful spicy hit. Balancing out the spiciness of the salsa was a drizzling of lime aioli. While the dish normally comes with cheese, we were able to order it without cheese since my father does not like the taste of it.

We ordered a serving of their Sweet Potato Chips to complement our meal. The chips were fried to golden brown and had enough salt to complement their slightly sweet flavour. If you desire to add another layer of flavour, you can have aioli dipping sauce for a bit of an extra cost.

Aside from their main menu, Hillbilly's Café also has some specials listed on a chalkboard close to the counter where you place your order. The décor of the café gave it a rustic feel. The space is tight with the tables placed pretty close together.
