Harvest Mylor Café
This charming Adelaide Hills café is very popular with locals who visit for the relaxed hills atmosphere, fantastic coffee and amazing food. It’s the perfect spot to sit outside under the dappled shade and enjoy good quality locally sourced, fresh food.
Mylor is a charming little town in the Adelaide Hills, located only 10 mins away from Stirling. The café is located in the main street opposite the Mylor Oval and although parking can be a little limited in the surrounding streets, there is plenty of car parking available at the oval across the road. There is also a public toilet located at the oval.
The menu offers simple food, made with love like delicious smashed avo on pumpkin bread, bacon and eggs, toast, waffles and burgers. Local producers feature strongly with homemade jams, relishes and even sourdough made in Mylor by the café’s neighbours.
Breakfast lovers will be pleased to find an all-day breakfast menu with a solid bacon and egg offering plus a bevvy of extra sides to choose from. This is also an excellent place to stop for lunch from noon, to grab a healthy roll or to indulge in one of their beautiful cakes or pastries.
You’ll also find an extensive drinks list with smoothies, scullery tea, beer, wine and cider and coffee lovers will be pleased to hear that the coffees and hot chocolates are extremely good.
The day we visited, we couldn’t go past the almond raspberry croissant with custard, which was exceptional.
Although there is not a designated play area, the casual layout of the building inside and outside lends itself well to easily accommodating kids and toddlers. There are rooms inside which allow enough space for kids to have a little play on the floor plus some wriggle room outside too.
On a sunny day, in the partial shade of the towering trees, the charming outdoor area is very appealing. There is a little swinging egg chair that kids can sit in while playing with a toy or reading a book and wonderful crunchy leaves to walk through in Autumn. Although the area is not fenced, it is reasonably well set back from the road but it is best to keep a close eye on littlies.
If you fancy a spot of shopping, there are clothes, homewares, gifts and books for sale inside. Many of the products are sourced locally.
There is also a lovely little florist shop next door selling a gorgeous array of flowers.
Next time you’re taking a leisurely day out in the hills, we highly recommend stopping by this lovely café. Nearby you will also find Tupelo Grove Nursery only a couple of minutes’ drive away where you will find a fabulous range of plants.
