. A LITTLE SANCTUARY ON MY DOORSTEP .
Petersham Nurseries sounds like the ‘hot topic’ of the month right now, I haven’t heard so many people, magazines and bloggers talk about the foodie destination of the moment since Alexa Chung for AG (or something equally fanatic). But the best and also most ironic thing of all about the recent surge of love for the nurseries is that it’s actually right on my doorstep. Being a Richmond girl, Petersham Nurseries have been under my nose for the last 5-6 years without me even giving them the time of day to pop in for a little stroll, afternoon tea or even their incredible restaurant lunch. Until now …

Jase and I popped along to the nurseries the other weekend for a leisurely Saturday out and about, we went along to suss out what all the fuss was about, and left fully getting it. We spent some time wondering around the nurseries, but the magic and wanderlust really happens when you enter the dining area, whether it be the main restaurant which is just so beautiful and whimsical, or the cafe area where you can grab yourself a healthy hearty lunch from the cafe and find a spot in the sunshine to eat. Everything from the decor to the ambience makes it such a special little sanctuary, and the food is just the cherry on top.
We ate at the cafe and had the most delicious selection of home made salads and quiches, but we’ve promised ourselves we’ll book a table for a luxury afternoon spent in the main restaurant with a full three course meal & plenty of fizz to boot soon.
Have you visited the nurseries? I really recommend you head west for the day and give some of Richmonds best a little try.
