I was waiting at the traffic lights when something caught my eye - the restaurant overlooking the park had transformed into a very inviting café, with outdoor tables under chic awnings. It had my name written all over it!

Later that day, someone posted a photo on Facebook, then I started noticing some reviews. This was definitely a sign. So a week later I headed down for a cozy light lunch.

I'd planned to enjoy the sunshine outside, but the room is so delightful, we decided to stay inside.

The Pig and Pastry Cafe offers full breakfasts as well as homemade bread and muffins. There are proper meals available for lunch, as well as lighter sandwiches. I went with the homemade chorizo, fennel and manchego quiche. I eyed a large and tempting burger enviously when it arrived on the next table, but when the quiche arrived, I was not disappointed. The pastry was delicious, the chorizo adding a dash of spice to the egg and fennel filling.

My partner in crime teamed the housemade sausage roll with the cabbage and carrot salad with a sweet mustard dressing.

We both washed it down with a Daylesford and Hepburn Organic Ginger Beer, however it's worth noting they have a small and refined wine list, with a beer and cider offering too.

They source locally for coffee and tea, and make a lot of their menu items themselves. Their website lists where a lot of the outsourced items come from, and it's quite interesting to see how local some of the providers are.

Had I known they make their own ice cream, I would have somehow manage to eat a dessert. A quick look at some of the cakes and pastries means that I will be returning. Soon.

Fortunately for me, there's plenty on the menu to work my way though.
