The Packing Shed, Bickley

The Packing Shed is found in the Bickley Valley area of the Perth Hills – which is fast becoming a must go weekend destination. There’s wineries, cafes, mini golf and the popular Core Cider House. To me, the spot nestled just behind Kalamunda is a far prettier drive than the Swan Valley, with its native bushland, winding roads and green rolling hills covered in vineyards and orchards, giving it a real country feel.

The Packing Shed opened up earlier this year. Found at one of Bickley Valley’s vineyards, Lawnbrook Estate, the rustic eatery is a peaceful spot for brunch or lunch all year round. We’ve previously been there on a sunny day and sat on the patio with a glass of wine (and a chocolate milkshake for Little Chef).

Little Chef loved to run around on the expansive lawns.

This time we visited for brunch, we spent a winter’s morning sitting inside, by the roaring log fire.

The staff are always welcoming and friendly. The coffee is very good too.

The brunch cut off is 11.30am, but there are a few breakfast dishes that make it onto the lunch menu for late-risers. My top brekkie pick has to be the shakshouka. It’s one of my all-time favourite brunch dishes and the Packing Shed’s version of eggs baked in a spicy Moroccan tomato sauce is very tasty and the fresh bread is perfect for dunking!

On the kids menu you’ll find a few tasty options.

Little Chef chose the kids platter. A brilliant idea, as children love to graze, but something I haven’t often seen on menus. This platter included a home made sausage roll, cheese and crackers, apple, grapes and a chocolate chip cookie. It is quite the feast!

The platter was a great size for this hungry 8 year old. If you have toddlers, they may even enjoy sharing a platter. Little Chef loved the hot chocolate too.The Packing Shed, Bickley

Both times I’ve visited, my Mum chose the quiche and salad ($14.50). She always raves about it. The side salad is really tasty and well made, certainly no afterthought and the quiche type changes often.

The super chunky chips are delicious!

Kids are well catered for, with a corner with some books, colouring in and a few games. There are high chairs for little ones too.

The Packing Shed is well worth a visit. It’s also home to a winery – enjoy tastings at the Lawnbrook Estate cellar door. It’s perfect for spending a couple of hours on a lazy weekend. Whether you’re an early riser or prefer a glass of vino and a platter.
