Why have I always driven past the Rhyll turnoff?
Cake, cafe, coffee, Rhyll
These were delicate and unique.

It was a winter's day when I arrived early at Rhyll on Phillip Island, but the sun was unexpectedly shining. This was a relief as I was about to head out on a boat to pick up seal researchers from Seal Rocks. Little did I know that there was plenty of wind out there, which gave me an interesting trip. At one point, my behind was air-borne as I reached for my camera.

I nervously arrived early to ensure that I was not going to hold up the very esteemed researcher. To my delight, Temuku Soul Food Cafe was open early too. I love an open kitchen and it was nice to find that although I had planned to not have cake for breakfast, I could not resist trying something I have never seen before and made on the premises.

Temuku Cake Counter
Love the open kitchen.

This pistachio, date, chocolate meringue cake was so delicate it was surely healthy and I wasn't going to let the time of day persuade me otherwise.

Fixated on the food, I realised this cafe was in a lovely position and I had a chat to the owners, who told me they inherited this interesting name: Temuku Soul Food. I relaxed and read the paper and enjoyed the peaceful view with the last of my good coffee.

Thank you Temuku Soul Food for a wonderful start to a most interesting day. For those of you wondering what on earth I was doing with Australian Fur Seals, you can see the rest of my adventure here.
