On the main street that takes you through Myrtleford to Bright (our destination), sits the enormously large Turkish-Lebanese-Asian warehouse (think that part of the business is called Red Ramia) of stuff and Cafe Fez. We had a wander around the large space looking at jacket, pictures, shoes, cups, plates, doors, flying carpets (hee hee! just kidding – couldn’t help myself!) then casually made our way into the cafe for lunch before continuing the last little leg of our journey to Bright….

Hubby Bear got the Traditional Lebanese Wrap – Falafel ($10) which was delicious and a bargain for a ten-er! The falafels were actually huge and moist!!! Yes, were were both surprised because those are two characteristics often lacking whenever either one of us orders a falafel dish. There was plenty of tzatziki, hommus and tabouli slapped in there, too! The portion size was perfect (big) and HB highly recommends you try one if you’re ever on your way through Myrtleford!

I got the Winter Soup Special (about $12, can’t exactly remember), which consisted of lentils, chickpeas and a few cut veggies. The flavour was pretty good, but nothing special…and after I took a bite of hubby’s wrap, it made me even more sad because the falafels in his wrap were delicious! and my soup was lacking deliciousness!. BUT, a soup is always a good option when it’s cold outside. 🙂

We also tried their Froo-Froo Fruit Dinks ($4/ea): Passionfruit & Lemongrass as well as the Granny Smith & Ginger. They were okay and not quite what we expected (not that we actually knew what to expect). They sounded a lot better than what came out – the advertisement for them made us think they’d be more like a fruit juice with added bubbles, but it seemed more like the other way around. But, we drank them though, albeit without much notice.
All in all though, Cafe Fez is a definitely a fun place to stop and waste some time (in Red Ramia) meandering through colourful and exotic items. And if your tummy’s grumbling – go the wrap!!
