There's something about enjoying pork belly and a pinot in the dining room of an 180 year old gorgeously renovated stone inn that once hosted bushrangers and poets, to makes you feel like you're winning at life. Or how about the personal glory of finding a first class parmie-and-pint under the eucalypts at some country tavern? Or the unutterable delight at discovering honest-to-goodness homemade puff pastry at a hidden bakery in a small town. Or gazing out over rolling vineyards whilst sipping a glass of surprisingly good local wine.

Bakeries, Cafes and Takeaways
You can't beat a good homemade sausage roll or flaky vanilla slice, right? Especially when it's paired with a good strong cup of well-made coffee. The Mundaring region has so many hidden gems when it comes to bakeries, cafes and takeaways, so check out all the little bakeries and cafés in the Perth Hills, who pride themselves on making good food from scratch.
Restaurants in the Perth Hills
The Mundaring region has some wonderful restaurants, housed in some truly beautiful buildings. The Inn Mahogany Creek, for example, has perched on the side of Great Eastern Highway for 180 years, watching the transport change from horses and carts to sports coupes and electric cars. Once, you'd find bushrangers in the bar; now it's just great food and a jovial atmosphere. It's an amazing building and you can't help but soak up the history in the walls.
