Ruffy Produce Store — Yum!

Ruffy Produce Store — Yum!

The produce store is primarily a laid back eatery. Pretty plain vanilla but a hoot. The menu is simple but the food good. Wait staff are also a hoot, especially the visiting Italian. A little on the chaotic side (the bill included three glasses of wine instead of three bottles) but a fun evening. Next day we returned and had a light lunch under the trees outside.

A great day trip from Shepparton, taking a little over 1 hour to drive.  The most direct route is via Longwood and the easiest is through Euroa and down the freeway.

Definitely a tour worth taking. Don't foget to book.

Old Boundary Hotel Cruise

Old Boundary Hotel Cruise

Old Boundary Hotel, 2 Milroy Street, Bendigo — 123km, 1hr 28m

This is one of my favourite cruises because of the literal pot of gold at the end of the rainbow — beautiful food.  I have been visiting the Old Boundary Hotel for a number of years and the food has always been consistently excellent.

The Boundary's steaks are something.  Prices start around the $30 range.  The seafood and pork dishes are also hard to pass up.  And for those who aren't so hungry, there's a range of entree dishes and salads to suit.
