Born in Madeira, raised in Sydney, living in Melbourne and dreaming of Bali...

Like something out of a movie, Harrietville is a sleepy country town littered with quaint wooden homes, complete with porches out the front, overgrown gardens and broken wire fences.

Apart from smoke from the fireplaces floating up into the sky, it mostly appears abandoned and there is no reason to drive through or even stop here - if it wasn't on the way to Hotham Alpine Resort...

Sure, there's a HOYS ski equipment hire shop in Harrietville, which is a good place to pick up your snow chains before making your way up the mountain.

But the real find was the little cafe directly opposite HOYS, where we stopped in for brunch coming back from our weekend ski trip.

The cafe itself is tiny - so luckily for us, it wasn't busy but it was also a lovely warm morning and we could sit outside and enjoy the sun on the adjoining patio. It's a cute wooden house, that blends in with the surrounding town and emits a nice relaxed vibe.

Being inner-city Melbourne millennials, we ordered coffee and the smashed avo on toast, and were pleasantly surprised to find that this small country cafe had added their own twist to our favourite dish - a sprinkling of dukka AND an extra poached egg! #winning

Brunch at Morries

At just over $20 each for a meal and beverage, we were pretty happy. The coffee, served in a rustic mug and was good, the food was fresh and delicious and the service was friendly.

I recommend stopping in on your way up or back from Hotham, or if you happen to be in the area for some other reason! They have ice cream too...
