Since we visited this place unplanned, we didn’t have any space in our stomach to try their food, not even a single bite. They have massive selections of alcoholic beverages and it such a shame we also had enough wine for a Sunday afternoon. Coffee was our only choice. They use Single Origin coffee from Sydney. Coffee tasted good, milk was perfect.
When we arrived, the staff greeted us with warmth and lots of smile. They all were groomed and dressed in neat uniform which shows their service level is at formal dining standard not just a casual cafe. They even let us go upstairs to have a peek at their bar venue (it was closed when we came).
This venue looks a lot like a home. The outdoor area still looks like the veranda of a Victorian house, which was very inviting to us. My friend and I had a little tour around with permission from the waitresses; both of us were actually amazed by how beautiful this place is! From the sectioning, I had a feeling this place was once a residence and, amazingly, they turned it into a very cosy lounge, café and beautiful country style slash elegant restaurant. I fell in love with the café area, full of white colour, from the furniture, walls and floor; the fresh flowers gave a splash of soft colour. As you all might notice, my picture in the “I For One” section was taken in this lovely place. I’m looking forward to visiting Millswyn again, for a relaxing afternoon cocktail and, of course, their food; whether I love the food or not, I will still go to Millswyn for the venue itself.
