Yanchep National Park has a host of places where you can enjoy a meal in the midst of wildlife wonderland. As I mentioned before, there are barbecues and picnic tables. However, if you show up with camera in hand and no hamper then you may want to visit the Chocolate Drop/Yanchep Tea Rooms.
When I first visited Chocolate Drop /Lakeview Tea Room, I was pleasantly surprised. With pink checkered decor, I felt I step right back into the 70’s. Everything was decorated perfectly – well so I thought.
Of course, if pink is not your favorite color, you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery. However, I loved this idea of having a coffee with the thought a going back in time – for a moment.
The coffee was good. In fact, the only fault I could find is that I did not order another one! My girls had a milkshakes (strawberry and caramel). Both kept remarking how ‘really good’ the milkshakes were.
Sue, the owner of the Lakeside Tea Room & Chocolate Drop, has won a number of awards. She started off her career in catering with decorating cakes. She was also introduced to making chocolate in Sydney. And, some years later she brought her skills to the heart of Western Australia.
To have an idea of how much a meal will cost you…a milkshake is about $6.50, coffee is about $4.00, and meals start at about $8.50 Prices are competitive to the Perth – which is surprising considering the distance they are from the city.
Overall, we had a pleasant experience. This little ‘Cuisine in the Park’ is well worth the visit!
