Marysville Patisserie

One of my favourite daytrips is to Marysville but strangely enough I had never been to Marysville before the bushfires devastated the area. The scenic drive from Healesville through the Black Spur is so beautiful and lush with foliage and tree ferns. This time we thought we would have lunch at the Marysville Patisserie. The patisserie was rebuilt after the bushfires and is bright and cheerful inside with outdoor seating also available under the wide verandah. Unfortunately no table service is provided here so you have to get up and down a lot. Most things on the menu are $18.50 and there is a wide range of cakes and fudge available too. Menu items include ‘Homemade gourmet pie with salad and chips’ ($18.50) and ‘Grilled Scotch fillet steak sandwich with caramelised onions served with lettuce, tomato and seasoned chips’ ($19.50). We started with some lattes. At $4 you would think that the coffee would be brilliant... but sadly it was pretty bad. They were both boiling hot and had a strong burnt taste. Our food took a long time to arrive even though it was pretty quiet. I decided to have the Homemade Salmon and Leek Quiche with salad ($15.50). This was a generous wedge of plump quiche that had a delicious filling. The accompanying salad of leaves and tomato had a very yummy wholegrain mustard dressing.

My friend chose the Angus Beef Burger with lettuce and tomato relish, salad and chips ($18.50). He thought the burger was a bit on the bland side. The chips were spicy but lacked salt.

Although our lunch was hit and miss, I think next time I am in Marysville I will try Fraga’s Café...
