Review of places and things we encounter in our travels.

The Glasshouse Bistro

Montville is a picturesque little town in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and one of our favourite destinations for a day trip.  It is a delightful place to while away the hours surrounded by quirky artefacts, inspiring art, jewellery, exotic prints from faraway lands and mouth-watering chocolates, ice creams and fudge.

It is also a little town offering a huge range of restaurants and coffee houses.  The cold mountain wind made our choice really easy – we ducked into the first restaurant that offered protection from the elements and what a good choice it turned out to be.

The Glasshouse Bistro is situated inside Camphor Cottage and operates from Friday to Tuesday.  We were greeted so warmly and friendly and immediately made to feel right at home.

I love the fact that the Bistro utilises seasonal, local and organic ingredients in their dishes.  Our vegetarian daughter chose a fruit salad and coconut tea for a bit of warmth.  The aroma of the tea was delightful.

As the bistro serves an all-day breakfast, our youngest chose a bacon and egg roll which she promptly declared to the best tasting one she has ever had.  I have to warn you though, that declaration is given almost every time she enjoys this dish.

We chose the curry share platter and were blown away by the intricate flavours.  Of course every time we added a different condiment, we enjoyed a totally different taste sensation.  A firm favourite for both of us was the lime pickles – the chef’s speciality.  We loved the whole experience – the staff was outstanding, the food delicious and the total cost a pleasant surprise.
