On the way back home from a beaut weekend visiting the Bunya Mountains we decided to stop for a final chat and debrief at Birches Restaurant on Mt Mee Road, Mt Mee.
I am continually surprised by the beauty of the areas surrounding Brisbane. So close to the city, this is a verdant paradise of rolling hills, contented cud-chewing cows, scenic vistas and winding roads that are a pleasure to drive on a bike or car.
We were still fortified by goat sausages and farm fresh eggs (more on that soon) so the freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and cream ($7.90) were perfect. They were just as fresh scones should be - warm, soft and inviting.
If we were more in need of food the menu certainly had a good range of offerings. It's a fairly safe line up, the sort of menu that would appeal to everyone from the kiddies to grandma without a problem.
The open fire place also would be very inviting on a cold winter's day.
Bottom line: Stop here for a quick bite or make it your lunch destination. The views are worth the drive and the food (only tasted the scones) is good.
