Waterfalls Café, Mt Fields National Park, TAS
All right this is about my last day in Tassie. We drove from Hobart in the morning and decide to go Mt Field National Park. We had already covered Mt Wellington the day before. As we drove towards the Dervent River and further into Mount Field National park, the landscape was so different and beautiful. Anyways, after doing a few walks we came over to this café at the visitor center for a quick lunch. The Waterfalls café has a seating outside in the garden from where the walks start, as well as in a wooden cottage which has the café.
Well to be honest, this is actually the middle of now where. Tasmania is all about natural beauty, well preserved in time, and fresh produce. The menu had scones, coffee, toasted sandwiches, foccacia’s, soups and the regular café fare. We decided to go for chicken schnitzel and the salmon fillet. The chicken schnitzel was served with chips and gravy. The schnitzel was heavenly, very fresh chicken and the crumb fried was wow. I have had chicken schnitzel so many places, but the quality of crumb fried was one of the best. The schnitzel in itself came in a heart shape. The gravy was probably about ok. The chips were crinkle cut.
Next comes the Tasmanian salmon fillet. Now to be honest, I am not too much of a fish person, but I decided to try the salmon fillet. Tassie is famous for the salmon fillet. The salmon fillet was well done and came with fries and the chips. I did taste the fillet and found it quite fresh. However as I said, a few bites for me, cos I am not too much of a fan for fish. My mother on the other hand did like the fish quite a lot.
For desert I ordered the chocolate mud cake. It came served with a mud cake, some cream and raspberry syrup. Lovely again.
All in all a good little café, and if you are in the area, do go over. Nothing to fancy but good food.
