For a long while, we've driven a few kilometres out of our way to Ranelagh to buy sourdough bread from Summer Kitchen Bakery. More recently, there's been another great reason to make the detour: Ranelagh General Store. Lovely coffee and the best. muffins. ever. Previously, that honour went to the Red Velvet Lounge in Cygnet, before the change in ownership. The burgers for lunch are to die for. I recently had a duck and orange burger with slaw, oh my dog... speaking of which, if we have the dogs with us, we can sit outside, with Baerli's enormous bulk blocking the entire footpath. A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to attend a friend's 50th birthday dinner there, as a private function. The small cafe was decorated so beautifully and the food was fabulous. I especially love the vintage elements they use like the water jugs. It's so warm and inviting. Must be about time for another visit.
