Actually didn’t know this place existed but I wanted to check out the place after finding it on Google. Not very popular yet ‘cos lack of publicity. The lady owner Bev (If I can remember her name clearly) is not very well verse with social media amd even her website is not up also. But she’s getting the hang of Facebook now, at least her page is up. 🙂
I don’t usually write about stores or shops but Bev is really very passionate about her products and she and her staff/friend loves making them almost every morning. She use to have a plot of land cultivating lavender but decided to focus in making the products instead. She now works with other farms where she gets her supplies from. Her products are all handmade using pure Lavender to make them. She has a whole range of products from cosmetics like facial cream, nail balm to edible stuffs like jams and honey (See there’s food!). While you’re there, don’t forget to sit down, chill out over a Lavender scone and coffee. Their Lavender ice cream is a hit too!
This Cape Lavender is not to be confused with another establishment with the same name located in Swan Valley. Located in Metricup of Margaret River region, this place is a little out of the town area, about 25km up north. Nevertheless, just take a straight drive up north on Bussell Hwy, turn left on Metricup Road, and then left again into Carter Road. If you prefer a more scenic drive like I do, go by Caves Road then turn right into Metricup Road. The roads in Western Australia are really easy, you won’t get lost!
Taste: Honey, jams and ice cream is awesome! Wine is alright ‘cos I don’t drink much. ;P
Service: Warm and friendly.
Ambience: Very quiet ambience with trees all around. Hope Bev can put more garden tables and chairs so more people can come chill out! 🙂
Price: A little pricey but all handmade and using pure ingredients. It’s worth it.
RTV (Return To Visit): Yes definitely when I’m in Perth next. I need more honey!!!
