Awkward Jeffrey Cafe Daylesford
Daylesford has long been one of my favorite spots in Victoria. I dream of moving there and writing books in the back room of my old farmhouse in between cooking generous Country style dinners for visiting family and friends.
I guess I would occasionally need to pop out for company and caffeine and when I did, I think I would visit Awkward Jeffrey.
Housed in a gorgeous, timber window framed, narrow, two story building Jeffrey’s charms include a black spiral staircase, an open fireplace, a gorgeous mural and many house plants.
The Espresso syndicate coffee was very good and food from the small, thoughtful menu was delicious and included a selection of local produce. La Madre vine fruit sourdough bread , cultured butter, Dele Foodstore jam ($7) or buckwheat pancakes, ricotta, chai custard, orange jelly, almond, mint ($16).
I ordered the luscious orange cake that was on display on the countertop and it was cake-y perfection.
Housed in a heritage building Awkward Jeffrey is a cosy and very visually beautiful cafe to dine in. I enjoyed the gazing out the window into the Daylesford streetscape beyond as much as I enjoyed the array of house plants and art work creating an inviting space inside.
If you are visiting beautiful Daylesford, and why would you not, then be sure to pop into Awkward Jeffreys for a meal.
