hutch & co, lilydale

Is it possible to fall in love with a building from just the outside? Well, it must be because Mamma is loving this recent addition to Main Street Lilydale, Hutch & Co. This totally amazing cafe, that has brilliant food and damn fine coffee, is stunning. Timber, plus tiles, plus steel. It is just beautiful, plus it shows full respect to the previous tenants of the building - the Hutchinson's grocery store. The cake cabinet is filled with goodies and the kitchen dishes out amazing breakfasts all morning long. The owners have also thought of their younger customers too. Mamma likes to take advantage of the topless courtyard to the rear of the cafe, allowing the little ones to explore and have room for the prams without disturbing others. They have great baby facilities too! 

Mamma's special mention: Melba Park is just behind the cafe in Market Street or you can go for a little more of a hike up the hill to Lillydale Lake once Mamma has had her prescribed morning coffee.
