Best Known For
Top of the Class: as good as it gets…tender eye fillet, topped with prawns and scallops, in a garlic cream sauce, served with creamy mash and seasonal vegetables.
Enjoy your favourite cup of Joe while you read a good book in comfortable, friendly surrounds at Professor and The Pigeon on Maroondah Highway in Healesville. This Yarra Valley café has a strong local following through training classes for budding young Chefs, along with a buzz of conversation from tourists dropping in on their way to a winery. There’s a rustic vibe to the interior with a fireplace creating a cosy corner during chilly months and walls covered with Art Deco posters; from brunch to dinner there’s a plate for everyone, like salt and pepper calamari, Aussie lemon myrtle spice, fries, salad and aioli. Pair a crisp Chardonnay with pan-fried Mediterranean salmon, rosti, tomatoes, chickpeas, capsicum, zucchini, lemon and walnut dukkah; before crème brulée, flamed at the table.
