Don’t be a goose, try A Gag­gle of Geese

McIvor Times - - NEWS - By KENJI SATO

A GAG­GLE of Geese has only been around since Fe­bru­ary but it is al­ready mak­ing a big splash.

The cafe´-bar-restau­rant dishes out lo­cal flavours, serv­ing lo­cal wines, lo­cally made condi­ments and lo­cal tea ton­ics.

The busi­ness has ex­panded since Fe­bru­ary – it is now open late on Fri­days and Satur­days and of­fers an ever-ex­pand­ing all-day menu.

“We’ve ex­tended the menu to of­fer a lot more than just teas and cakes when we first moved in,” Joan Stam­mers said.

Joan said the menu was in­spired by her fa­ther’s Scot­tish recipes, in­clud­ing the cooked square sausages and po­tato scones she fondly re­mem­bered from child­hood.

The cakes, muffins and scones are Joan’s own recipes she in­vented while tin­ker­ing around in the kitchen.

A Gag­gle of Geese is the only busi­ness in Heathcote to stock lo­cal tea ton­ics, and claims to have the best cof­fee in town.

The build­ing main­tains its his­toric name as well as some of the build­ing’s his­toric fea­tures.

“It’s a very homely sort of place. It has that coun­try town feel with the brick walls, solid wood ta­bles and chairs and lo­cal pro­duce,” Joan said.

When not at the cafe´, Joan’s work­ing at Heathcote Pri­mary school as an ed­u­ca­tion sup­port staff mem­ber. And while she is there, her son Matthew takes the reins as man­ager.

A Gag­gle of Geese can be found at 97b High St. Book on 5433 2735.

A Gag­gle of Geese is lo­cated at 97b High Street, Heathcote.
