If Ashburton is on your horizon, keep your eyes wide open for the big cup at the newly refurbished Ashford Village Complex. There you will find Millhouse Kitchen which offers fabulous coffee, a delicious menu and cabinet food to weary travellers and very happy locals, seven days a week.
This multi-faceted café features an array of al fresco spaces including the veranda, as well as the garden café.
Seating varies from stylish Euro-style cafe chairs to the park benches outside, while the interior décor features beautiful timber and black finishes, and is always filled with fresh flowers.
Built around classic flavours and local produce, the menu at Millhouse Kitchen varies with each season’s best offerings.
The specials board and the freshly baked goods are a fixture however, and their sweet and savoury treats run from scones and muffins to slices, cakes and biscuits, in both traditional and more adventurous flavours.
The perfect spot for a picturesque brunch or to while away the afternoon over craft brews and a burger, or rose and nibbles, the gorgeous outdoor venue is optimal for guests of the four-legged variety too (just BYO your own water bowl, please).
For more information contact (03) 307 9249 or visit the café at 427 West Street, Ashburton.
