Meating Place Cafe, Birregurra

43 Main Street
Victoria 3242

We've stopped for lunch in Birregurra before, previously normally at the Royal Mail Hotel. Last time we were in town there was new management at the pub, and although there were a few well priced traditional pub counter meals available, it wasn't quite what we were looking for. 

We wandered down the street and decided to try the Meating Place Cafe at the Birregurra Farm Foods shop, which was pretty busy, both inside and out.

We found a table near the outdoor wood fired pizza oven, which needed to be dusted off, as it wasn't often used.

We ordered a couple of coffees, my long black was great...

..and the flat white went down well too.

I ordered the olive tapenade and hummus with flat bread from the oven. This arrived quite a while ahead of our other dish and we both shared it. The components were all good, if heavy on the salt and they blended well.

The mushroom pizza certainly sported plenty of funghi and perhaps just a bit too much cheese too.

The service was very friendly and just about managed to keep up with the long weekend crowd. The bill came to $42 including the coffees. The Meating Place would probably be our preferred option when heading through town next time.

  1. I had a lovely pizza here last summer! The staff were very welcoming and happy for us to shelter from the bad weather for hours.
