The Timber located in the Officer and Pakenham area. And yes this is one the rarest occasion we are in this area.
We were looking to meet our friend in this area and then we randomly decided to have a breakfast here since it is close to his place.
Timber Mill has a sizeable patio for outdoor dining and a smaller floor inside with plenty of lights.
We would totally eat outside if the weather was not rainy at that time.
The patio is overlooking this lake in a newly developed area.
We ordered Chai Latte, Cappuccino and Latte ($4 each) .
They use All Press Coffee and I tell you they made a surprisingly pretty decent coffee especially in area.
Usually as you travelled further from the city usually the expectation for good coffee is lower. But this one really satisfactory and great find in this area!
We also ordered Croissant ($6) and Toasted Banana Bread ($6).
The croissant was warm and crispy on the outside and got that buttery taste that I like.
No complain at all. The banana bread is also great and fragrant without being too sweet.
I love the toast marks that give a slight crispy texture on the moist banana bread.
Too bad it was slightly over toasted so it was slightly dry.
A tad bit expensive as well for a small portion of banana bread.
Would love to try more things but we will have brunch on Ascot Vale later on that day – see my next post for this review 🙂
The owner gave us a chocolate ball as a treat. Since the recipe is secret so I’m going to take a guess.
So the outer part of the choco ball is covered with shredded coconuts and ball texture is similar like protein balls.
This one is pretty good snack and not too sweet. A sizeable snack for to go as well which are sold in packs.
Yay: Good coffee and loose leaf Chai Latte
Nay: a slightly small banana bread although the taste is nice.
We would recommend this place since it is definitely a hidden gem in the area. The staff are friendly and they provide great service too.
