The Hillcrest Berry farmstall and restaurant is amazing where their own products from their farm are made /and or processed using handmade, old-school labour intensive methods, thus maximising local employment (which I believe is fabulous).

The menu is great; with lots of choice - made to order using fresh produce (as far as I know).

I loved the hazelnut hot chocolate, but their coffee is great too.

Their homemade to order scones are fabulous and as they come with a choice of 2 of their
many jams, cannot easily be beaten.

Whether its a gorgeously sunny day or a chilly wet winters day, this place will suffice.

Service is not at the most desired standard, but is fairly good.

A place worth the visit.

We invited a friend to lunch at Hillcrest Berry Orchard recently. The fire in the quaint stove made the place even more inviting. We ordered hamburgers and were served high towers topped with crisp onion rings and fries, all accompanied by their signature condiments in little jars. (Another patron passed by and remarked that she should have ordered it too!) Our waitress overheard the word "birthday" and when we asked for the bill, our friend was surprised with a complimentary sweet treat that absolutely made his day. It turned an ordinary day into something quite special for him. Well done!

Went here for lunch with my wife and one of her primary school mates. Lovely venue with beautiful views and an outdoor terrace. Book ahead for the best seats.

We had lunch here on Sunday. It was a cold afternoon and the restaurant was warm and cosy. We wanted to order brie cheese and asked if it was ripe. The waitress had no idea what we were talking about. In the end we had bread and pate as well as some of the antipasti options on their menu. The food was good but not outstanding. The prices were fair.
