Lavender and Berry Farm Pemberton is the place to go for casual, family friendly dining set among a picturesque location.
On arrival, we headed to the gift shop and café. There was a selection of jams, soaps, candles and other lovely knick-knacks to buy in the shop, as well as the café counter to order food. I had read about the famous “pemby pancake” served with icecream and homemade jam, so ordered a small one to share, as well as a breakfast roll, coffees and babycinos for the kids. The pancakes take about 15 minutes to cook for the small and 20 minutes for the large. While we waited we took a stroll around the grounds of the farm.
The farm has some beautiful gardens with lots of roses and lavender, as well as some friendly alpacas and ponies to pat (but remember not to feed the animals!).
The café has seated alfresco dining that is sheltered from the wind, rain and sun and offers high chairs and colouring-in for the kids. However, you can also choose to eat on the picnic benches right next to the kid’s playground.
With young kids who
don’t like to stay still for long, we chose to sit next to the playground. I
love this type of dining, it makes it so much easier to keep an eye on my 3
kids, as well as enjoy my food without having to scoff it down before anyone
gets too cranky.
The playground is
pretty simple with some sand, a fort, a slide and a see-saw, but it was enough
to keep my kids entertained for at least an hour. The playground also overlooks
the onsite dam and the surrounding Karri forest – a lovely spot to while away
Our food was brought out to us (just mention when you order that you will be sitting at the playground) and everything looked and smelt delicious. The Pemby pancake was different to a typical pancake. I think it gets baked in the oven, which gives it a crunchy outer, but a soft and fluffy centre. It was so good! The breakfast roll was also a good choice and our coffees were on point.
The kids had lots of fun on the playground, and hubby and I got to enjoy a relaxed breakfast. I will definitely be back the next time I’m in Pemberton.
