Country Road Cafe – 31 Dec 2010

I left feeling quite satisfied. It didn’t wow me but was solid. For the price, I think it’s quite reasonable and the cool interior or a table outside makes for a pleasant setting. I wouldn’t mind coming back to try the pie, but personally, the menu offerings aren’t to my taste but that doesn’t mean it won’t appeal to other people.
