The Baron, Castle Hill

Just outside Castle Towers is The Baron, with it's concerete floor and walls and mismatched furniture it stands out from other cafe's in the area.

After hearing only good words my husband suggested we have breakfast at The Baron this morning. Arriving at approximately 10 am, we were greeted with a warm welcome and were given the choice to sit at a small table for two or a communal table, we choose the small table for two.

Our drink order was placed almost immediately and we were given a reasonable period of time to go over the one page menu.

Pulled pork roll
The day menu isn't too complicated with approximately ten main items. We decided to order the New southern pulled pork roll and the Sausage sambo.

Sausage sambo
After a short wait our roll and sambo was served, and as requested was cut in half. It is hard to say which is the better of the two, the pork was beautiful and sweet and brought back memories from pulled beef we ate in America. The sausage sandwich was a step up from your traditional sausage sambo, it was on a fresh, crisp panini roll, with a beautiful chilli jam.

Overall I rate The Baron 8.5/10, prices are reasonable, the service was friendly, the atmosphere was good and the coffee is fantastic!
