I have been to and love Stoney’s on Kerr street, but I didn’t realize this street had transformed into a village…
I ventured out to Kerr Village after a friend recommended the “chicken bruschetta pizza” from Fantastico Pizza. I was pleasantly surprised to enter into a cosy pizzeria with a wood stove oven! I was greeted by a helpful employee and even though I’d prefer more garlic on the pizza, it was fantastically tasty and I really enjoyed the herbs and the thin crust.
While I waited for my pizza I just had to take a peak next door; Kerr Street Cafe. My visit was rewarded with a fabulous proper hot chocolate.
As I was about to leave after my first visit to Kerr Village… I spotted Elm Hill Cookies and to my delight this inviting little cookiery (cookie bakery) smelled amazing, had great samples, huge selection and lovely staff. After a couple of samples I had to take this experience home with me!
I was more than happy with every single cookie I choose as each one offered me a quality experience for my tastebuds. However, the “lemon blueberry sandwich” cookie was my highlight. I’m a chocolate girl, so having a citrus, berry flavour win me over was a delightful surprise. I did love the “everything” cookie as well as the fabulous Guinness chocolate and the maple sandwich. But this cookie story doesn’t end there. A couple of days later I needed another lemon/blueberry fix, I was craving the melt in my mouth lemon cookie! So I brought a friend along and I was surprised and excited to see all the new cookies. I picked out my 6 cookies, but my fellow cookie-eater wanted no sharing so he picked out his own additional 6 experiences (which he did share with me)!
We were not disappointed as again with each cookie your tastebuds are offered a different and amazing journey! The peppermint tea cookie was surprising to me…. utterly AMAZING! I will definitely come back for 6 of those along with the heavenly lemon ones. Even the apple pie cookie surprised me with its apple pie likeness.
