Our Valued Suppliers:
The Red Door Hens.... and Johnny the Rooster (pictured here with Lizzie)
Thanks to the generosity of one of our loyal customers, Noel; and the workmanship and creativity of Luke in building their home, we are now able to make all of our luscious desserts with our fresh free-range eggs.
If you're ever wondered why our housemade Vanilla Bean ice-cream looks a tad yellow.... you guessed it! Those yolks are magnificent.... and for their efforts, we thank them and wish them a long & happy life in our back yard! Its also a great way to recycle all the kitchen scraps!
Given that making Ice-cream results in using lots and lots of egg yolks, we utilise the whites and extra yolks in the making of our homemade whole egg pasta. We can offer our silkie pasta as an alternative when catering for large whole restaurant bookings - always happy to accommodate your needs.

Robe Town Brewery
Their unique brewery embraces a simple and honest approach to brewing flavourful ales and beverages. The hand-made and cobbled brewhouse incorporates several historical and traditional brewing methods, recreating the kind of conditions in which ale and beer has been made for millennia: timber mash tuns with straw filtration for extracting sweet wort from malt; a wood-fired kettle for heating water and boiling/hopping the wort; open fermentation in a shallow, square tank; natural carbonation from secondary fermentation inside bottles or kegs.
BALLARAT MUSHROOM FARM - A big thankyou to Tanya and Monique for their amazing mushrooms. Each week they deliver firm, fresh, aromatic beautiful field mushrooms which transform our selection of Mushroom Pizzas from being tasty.... to simply superb! Find them at local Farmers' Markets and try their marinated mushrooms.... fresh from the Farm. Simply beautiful!
Meredith Dairy - One of our most popular Pizza's is our Roast Pumpkin which is finished with the highest quality Meredith Goat's Cheese. Now featuring in much of our menu, this succulent cheese is a real highlight.Winner of more awards than any of their other cheeses and made using the best fresh ingredients. Soft textured cubes of goats cheese drenched in garlic infused extra virgin olive oil, spices and fresh herbs.
