Renowned for the best scones on the coast but they're not the only delicious items to try here.
Moorland Cottage Cafe has a wonderful garden setting with a beautiful indoor option too. This is a great place to stop for a break off the highway and is safe for the kids. Working farms are our neighbours, so the kids can marvel at the sheep, horses, alpacas and cows.
Our setting is also great for groups, parties, occasions and coaches and we are now offering High Teas via bookings.
We are renowned for the "Best Scones on the Coast" as our history is that of a bakehouse and later a Devonshire tea house, but we now have a modern, well priced menu, with real espresso coffee. Gluten free offerings are available. We offer all menu items as takeaway too.
Located only 15 minutes north of Taree and conveniently located just 300 metres off the Pacific Highway away from the hustle and bustle. Relax in the quiet shady gardens for a light lunch, espresso coffee, homemade pies, Devonshire teas and the famous homemade scones. Small gift items and homemade jams, pickles and relishes are available.

Definitely the best scones on the coast, if not the country. It's such a lovely place for a stop. It can get quite busy with limited tables. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The new owners are very knowledgeable of the area and are happy to have a chat. Beautiful gardens to sit in. Outdoor and indoor seating. Recommend to all heading up or down the coast to stop in for a lovely bit. We will be back next time we are travelling through that way.

Lovely restful place for a late lunch! We shared nachos & a plate of scones which more than satisfied our hunger! The staff were delightful plus it was nice to be able to chat with the lovely owner Christina! We loved sitting in the garden with all the chickens running around. We will be back again!

Wouldn’t have known this cute little spot existed if it weren’t for a friend who knew the area and recommended it. Really lived up to expectations. The scones were delicious and I ordered the ‘Mia special’ pie which I’d highly recommend. Friendly service and a really lovely dining room with plenty of country charm. But a personal favourite element was the friendly chooks roaming around

A beautiful place to stop for morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea! Quirky back garden with tables set under the trees and hens and chicks wandering through or a lovely indoor space. The menu was varied with choices to suit anyone and the best scones ever!! We will definitely return!
