1. Carrot cake and cream cheese icecream:
Leeuwin Estate’s cream cheese icecream and walnut dukkah are the perfect accompaniment to the traditional carrot cake. This mini muffin with delicate crispy top layer is a must taste. The deconstructed style has all the elements of a hearty home style dessert with Master-chef credentials.
2. Lavender scones:
What’s the colour of Lavender? You’ll find the answer to this question at Cape Lavender Teahouse! Don’t miss this quaint and fragrant roadside pit stop for all things Lavender – culinary and otherwise. Try the Devonshire tea, which comes with Lavender scones, Lavender jam and double cream, plus your choice of tea or coffee. Take home a bag of culinary Lavender to try your hand at recreating these floral baker’s delights. You’ll leave in a purple haze.
3. Arc of Iris: Situated towards the end of Margaret River’s Bussell Highway, take a short walk through the town centre to dine in this eclectic haven. From wood fired local bread to saffron risotto or angel hair pasta with crab, you’ll be delighted with the service and relaxed elegance.
It’s always a pleasure to visit Western Australia’s South West Region. What’s your top 3?
