Old Fashioned Food, Old Fashioned Prices
I have a personal fondness of country food and charm and Rosewood Cottage and Historic House in Kinglake certainly lives up to its promises.

On Black Saturday, in the Kinglake fires, it was burnt to the ground, however the owners have lovingly rebuilt another historic house and Rosewood is open for business again.

As you enter the historic house you can choose from a selection of rooms to dine in, some are cosy and quaint, all are filled with antiques, curios and knick knacks, many of which are available for purchase, including crochet and art works.

If you venture straight down the hall, you will come to the back room which has sweeping and magnificent views over the now regrown Kinglake hills. For the children there is a small garden maze at the back to explore after lunch and a little play area.

We chose lovely steaming hot pumpkin soup, little individual hand made loaves of bread, savory scones and a house blend tea and iced chocolate. The food and drinks were great, the prices refreshingly reasonable.
Devonshire tea or something more substantial
I loved the tiny little cake cabinet on the counter where you could choose from some of the delights that granny may have previously made for you. Chocolates begin from $1.50 and some cakes are $4.
On the day I visited on offer were: Passionfruit sponge, jelly, trifle, chocolate mousse along with the a la carte menu items also.

I have taken a photo of the Rosewood Cottage story for your perusal here as it explains their history beautifully and from their own hearts.
The Rosewood Story
Rosewood Cottage is located in Kinglake. If coming up from the St Andrews or Yarra Glen direction, go past the tourist office, through the Kinglake township and it will be a little further out on the left hand side.
My husband and I went for a drive a couple of months ago and dropped in here and it was a beautiful old world charm experience. Thanks to the owners for this great place for us to visit. Highly recommended. Anna
Glad to hear there back in. business we have been their many times in the past
but we're told by one of there locals that they didn't rebuild, I. think a trip with the grandkids is looking pretty good on Sunday..many thanks for the post.
