I think you'd be forgiven for trying to eat one of these cakes - they look so delicious!
Last week some bloggy friends and I went on a little drive to Ballan.
Only about 30 minutes from Ballarat on the Melbourne freeway.
Oh, that means it's not far from Melbourne, or Geelong too . . .
They had every colour of the rainbow in fabric - just a beautiful display.
Mill Rose Cottage was the name of this sumptuous QUILT SHOP.
Next door as part of the whole outfit, was a gorgeous little restaurant. Of course we had lunch first, then next door for shopping, and then back for coffee and cake. This was the view from our coffee window.
The meal was fantastic, the cakes were "out of this world scrumptious delicious"
and we will definitely be going back again.
It really was a special "day out"
If you're looking for a lovely place to go, to meet up with like minded friends,
this is definitely a great choice.
You can't miss it in Ballan - it's in the main street, a village really, so only one main street. While we were there, it was getting lovely RED canopy's over the windows, so it really stands out. Only open since March, so a brand new venture.
Spoilt for choice? Well we have 3 great shops in Ballarat already, Gails Patchwork Emporium, Ballarat Patchwork, and Eureka Patchwork. Now we have somewhere else to share our love...Millrose Quilting and Gallery. It would be a great "round trip" for anyone needing to have a "fabric fix" and I'm sure there would always be Ballarat Girls happy to share in the coffee part. Another little gem has been discovered. There's a great review of it here.
