Eleven Acres reveals why it is such a perfect place to relax.
ALMOST like you have escaped to your own rural retreat, there is nothing short of fabulous about an afternoon spent relaxing at Eleven Acres Cafe.
Eleven Acres wedding and events co-ordinator Sarah Norris said with the days that much warmer, the big beautiful trees surrounding the cafe, everything in bloom and the grass green, it was a beautiful outlook for alfresco style dining.
“Our setting is magical and we even find that people enjoy on a rainy day to sit in the café over a hot beverage and simply watch the rain fall it is that peaceful,” Sarah said.
“We are lucky in that because of our bushland surrounds we also get a nice breeze which makes warmer days that much more pleasant for dining and there is always something new to look at on the grounds.”
Everyone is catered for at Eleven Acres whether looking to dine with friends, have a fun relaxing afternoon with the family and they are even dog friendly.
One thing that is definitely drawing the crowds both locally and those visiting the region is the amazing variety of the menu both for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Head chef Ben Achurch loves nothing more than sharing his passion for food and experience developed throughout the world that allows him to bring culinary masterpieces to the plate.
Ben continues to update the menu based on the seasonal changes and loves nothing more than the fact that he is surrounded by such a wealth of fresh produce throughout the region to create with.
People who are looking for something new and difference are drawn to the cafe’s menu, although it also continues to hold some of the customer favourites as well.
“Our restaurant menu is also updated as availability of produce changes, which keeps its exciting, especially for our customers who frequently visit.”
The Eleven Acres Cafe experience doesn’t end there though as they are also developing a name for some sensational coffee.
Café manager Tania Willet said staff use the Bond Street Blend from Veneziano which is a seasonal blend, meaning it is the best coffee of the season they are using; add to that they also use filtered rain water for all their coffees.
“We have well trained Baristas who love coffee,” Tania said.
“Our baristas spend a lot of time chatting to and learning about coffee from Tommy Pollock from Specialty Coffee Co who supply our coffee because our coffee experience is about education.
“They are equipped with extensive knowledge about coffee and therefore are able to share that with the customers, in their cup and in conversation if the customer is interested.”
But the true pièce de résistance for Eleven Acres continues to be its staff with Sarah highlighting they are all great.
“It truly is such a team effort here at Eleven Acres,” she said.
“It is this pure joy for what we do that is in turn passed onto our customers who know when they stroll up the path they are going to be greeted by staff who want them to enjoy their time with us from beginning to end.”
CHEERS: A delicious meal or simply a few quiet drinks, Eleven Acres offers the perfect setting.
