Peach Cafe Milton
"Life is sweeter, it smells like roses and you're comfy here. Welcome to Peach." (snippet from Peach Cafe About section, via their website).
In the heart of Milton, a charming country town just over three hours south of Sydney, lies a relatively new kid on the block, Peach Cafe. At just two years old, Peach Cafe has established itself as the greatest cafe in Milton - at least according to my boyfriend and I. You can trust us, food is our love language, and we both have high standards.
First impressions last. And Peach provides glorious ones.
Founded by entrepreneurial sisters Jazz and Amber, Peach has a unique and funky style. Tropical meets urban in this trendy space. The decor shows glimpses of a glorious Mediterranean influence, and it isn't hard to imagine yourself halfway across the world, despite our current lockdown. Jazz and Amber have created a space that transports the dreamers among us on a mental vacay across the globe and enables diners to simply immerse themselves in the beauty surrounding them.

The abundant greenery is the most excellent showcase on display in Peach. Plants large and small, line the counters and shelves, interspersing between the products for sale such as the milk, coffee beans, jams and sauces that line the shelves to the right of the counter. Plants also fill empty spaces, hanging from the ceiling and walls in a beautiful assortment of planters. You will often also find flowers for sale here and various practical yet gorgeous gifts like keep cups.
Exposed brick and fruity tables.
Wooden tables adorned with plants line the sidewalk out front, shaded by giant Peach and white umbrellas. Inside, tables are wrapped in, what appears to be, vinyl fruity printed plastic coverings such as strawberries on a pink background, and oranges atop of bright, cheery blue. Every table has a vase of flowers, adding to the green living vibe of Peach. While my boyfriend found the table coverings a bit tacky, I absolutely adored them. They are retro reminders to the roadside diners of days gone by and add a playful ambience to the space.

An exposed brick wall runs along the length of the cafe and wraps around to the left while remaining walls are painted a beautiful creamy peach and a charcoal grey. The indoor seating areas are divided into sections by an internal wall. While there are steps inside, the cafe is still pram and wheelchair accessible, and various doorways can accommodate this. With COVID, Peach has established COVID safe practices such as one entry and a separate exit, though the friendly staff will accommodate those needing alternate arrangements.
Immerse yourself in the dreamy decor at Peach Cafe, Milton.
I fell in love with Peach when I first stepped inside. Tantalised by the atmosphere, the decor, the cheery and friendly staff and the beautiful aromas of delectable food and coffee. Not only does the cafe offer the promise of delicious food and coffee, it delivers this -above and beyond expectations.
Cold Brew coffee and a Beige smoothie. As delicious as they look.
A glass display cabinet showcases an array of scrumptious baked goods. Think sour cherry & cream cheese tart, peach & maple macadamia slice and raspberry coco balls to name a few.
The menu is filled with creative and enticing dishes such as the Fried Chicken Shawarma Burger filled with apple & fennel slaw, sweet cucumber pickles and served on a potato bun at $18. My boyfriend informs me that it is as delicious as it sounds. Having a dairy allergy myself, I began discussing modifications to the Avocado on Sourdough, $18. Usually accompanied with avocado, chilli, pickled beetroot, feta, fresh herbs, toasted seeds and sumac yoghurt, the staff liaised with the chef and were more than happy to accommodate, when I noticed the Coconut Waffles for $20. Vegan coconut waffles with baked cinnamon peaches, roasted nuts and dairy-free ice cream, I substituted my savoury order for the sweet. The waffles are mouth-wateringly delicious. I am calling it. The next brunch phase to sweep the nation, after smashed avo and all its variations. My boyfriend's chicken, finger-lickin' good. Coffees are deliciously smooth and velvety. My boyfriend and I also share the Beige smoothie which is filled with banana, coconut, peanut butter, cinnamon, dates and almond milk for $10. As I relive this experience through writing, I am finding myself drooling.
The infamous drool-inducing Coconut Waffles, $18.
Our experience was so overwhelmingly wonderful that we dined here again the next morning. After spending a night dreaming of coconut waffles, I indulged again, while my boyfriend tried the Breakfast Plate for a very reasonable $18 and added a hashbrown for just $2.50. The breakfast plate consisted of two fried eggs, toasted pita, homemade hummus, spiced chickpeas, pickled onion & cabbage and coriander. Again, Peach Cafe lived up to the incredibly high standards set the day before, and my boyfriend and I smiled at each other. Content that we had found the greatest cafe in Milton. I would go as far as to say the best cafe on the South Coast. Peach please, try it for yourself. Think of the endless wordplay you can enjoy with the name while you brunch.
The Breakfast Plate. A very reasonable $18.
So beautiful in fact, is the experience at Peach Cafe, that I will be back on my upcoming trip to Kangaroo Valley for a few nights. An hour's drive is day trip achievable and I am salivating at the proximity I will be to those coconut waffles once again.
Instgrammable food, decor and drinks await you. For the love of brunch, if you haven't already, get Peach(ed).
