Located along the Princes Highway, Bunyip, it's easy to miss this unassuming cottage. I had passed it several times on the way to Philip Island before I finally made a reservation, bringing visiting friends for lunch recently. We love the overall experience, from reasonably price delicious food, friendly service and old world charm ambience. The tea room is decorated with lavender inspired theme, from the table cloths, curtains and menu.
Do note that they have a strict 'No Pram' policy in their tea room due to majority of their customers are elderly/disabled, an unobstructed passage to toilets and walkways must be kept clear at all times. They have highchairs and a bassinet available upon request.
I've been to Lady Lavender several times and it's always a pleasant experience. The food is delicious, fresh and beautifully served. The decor is very pretty, too, right up to kitsch and past it - but don't we all like a bit of kitsch once in a while? Good stop for a break if you're going further into Gippsland. Look out for the Gumbuya Park sign on the left because it's the best marker before you get to the Lady Lavender sign.
