The Green Room is an organic cafe in Willunga; a town south of Adelaide, within the Southern Vales wine growing region. It took me 2 and a half hours, 2 buses and a train to get there.
The cafe is quite large with indoor seating and 2 outside areas. We were sat inside which was nice and homely, slightly ruined by our proximity to the dish washing area. Who knew plates and soap could be so loud!
The menu is all vegetarian with many vegan and gluten free options. I ordered peppermint tea and the lentil and mushroom pie.
The tea was… well tea. Good quality but nothing special though I was annoyed that we were the only table without a sugar bowl. Also that teapot is really ugly. 🙂
The main dish was interesting. The salad was fresh and I liked the addition of lightly pickled onion, however I found the dressing to be a tad oily. The pastry of the pie was wonderful, thin and flavorsome. The filling was nice but odd. Expecting a gravy I was confused to find that the pie was tomato flavored. It still tasted good but the mushrooms were completely lost. The tomato relish was very vinegary but when mixed with the rich pie filling it worked.
Food: Tasty and filling. 3.5/5
Setting: The interior was nice but a bit noisy. Outside however was lovely and green! 3.5/5
Service: Polite, efficent, no issues. 4.5/5
Overall: A nice cafe with good food in a fabulous location. Whats not to love? 4/5
