I love baked goods so much, and it is always a huge delight to go somewhere and buy baked goods, rather than having to bake them myself. As we were leaving Castlemaine we passed through Daylesford, and thanks to Miss T's post we were totally prepared to go looking for Himalaya Bakery.
Hanging out with a friend in Castlemaine the afternoon before, she'd let us know that Daylesford was empty during the week and chockas during the weekend, so as we were there on a Wednesday we figured we'd be fine for service. And we were! What we weren't prepared for was the unbelievable cold as we got out of the car. It was so cold D stopped to buy a new jacket! And we were super glad we had our scarves.
We found Himalaya Bakery, and hurried inside where it was nice and warm and bready smelling. After the oddest miscommunication ever, we established that we'd like an apple scroll, something coffeish, and a hot chocolate. We shared the apple scroll, as I was still very full from breakfast (B+Bs are the best), and it was so exciting to have an apple scroll, for the first time since we went vegan. It was delicious! The hot chocolate also was pretty good.
Warmed up and filled with delicious apple scroll, we purchased one of everything else that was vegan in their display window for later travelling noms. This ended up being three muffins: fig and sultana, coconut and apple, and chocolate. These were all pretty tasty, I think I liked the coconut and apple the best, and it was great to have some sweet treats later in the day when we were cold and hungry from wandering around at Sovereign Hill.
I would love to go back to Himalaya Bakery and give their breakfasts a go, but perhaps again on a weekday.
