Breaking up the drive from Gippsland back to Melbourne 40 minutes into the journey, we made a pit stop at Stratford’s Badger and Hare cafe for some coffee and a small bite. The cafe is incredibly cute and homely, with a garden and lemon tree and all - a home away from home if you like. It turns out we missed the lunch window but couldn’t say no to their fragrant banana bread, served warmed with some banana chips to heighten the banana presence whilst providing crunch. It goes without saying that we will have to return again for a proper bite when in the area next.
