I’m a huge fan of Shannon Bennett so Piggery Cafe has always been on my list for a while. Finally having a chance to go on a hike with Ms Traveller, I suggested Piggery Cafe to refuel. Oh just an FYI, we couldn’t get reception up here so download your maps offline in case your GPS cuts off like ours did (we managed to find our way though). Anywho, there’s ample parking spots and we arrived on a chilly Sunday morning and as you reach the cafe, there’s a map to show whats around (we tried looking for the emus but they must be on vacay now). There are piggies here so definitely go say hey to them! Finally reaching the cafe, we found a huge queue. Since we opted for either inside or outside so we could get food in our bellies quicker and that definitely paid off. Within 5 minutes, we got a table outside next to the heater (SCORE!).
To warm us up, I got a soy latte which was smooth, warm and a great caffeine hit.
Soy Latte – $4.50
We both went for the wagyu burger with extra bacon and chippies on the side. The chippies were super crunchy but needed a touch more seasoning. The wagyu burger? We found it to be a touch dry and needed more sauce. The wagyu patty was not juicy at all. The bacon was awesome sauce though. It was soft, supple and oh so succulent.
Wagyu Burger – $18
David Blackmore Wagyu, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, BB sauce, fries
+ bacon $5
The cafe is beautiful and it’s very kid friendly with a playground and even a croquet pitch. The estate also contains tree truffles to fresh veggies and it’s just a very homely place to be. However, the food itself was very disappointing. The coffee was great and that would probably be the only thing I’ll get if I ever come back.
