Ever since the bushfires, I've been wanting to revisit Marysville and the surrounding areas. I wanted to see how the community was doing and also wanted to help out the local economy by having lunch there and buying a trinket or two.
This time, we arrived around lunchtime. It was a beautiful day - clear skies, little wind, and very crisp air.... gorgeous!
There's a few cafes and bakeries in Marysville. We opted for Fraga's Cafe - a warm, homely cafe with a slight hippy (as opposed to hipster) vibe that is located on the main strip.
I liked the bright green colour of the walls and the sunlight that streamed through the windows.
Inside, it's got quite a few local artwork on display, which were also on sale too.
We got a latte and cappucino. The coffee came in these cute, colourful cups.
For food, the Lawyer got the minute steak sanger w fries and salad. The Lawyer liked the steak. Although, I thought the steak was a tad chewy and the bread rool was a tad plain (there wasn't any butter, sauce, chutney or mayo inside).
As I wasn't as hungry, I got a bowl of fried w homemade aioli. The aioli was nicely garlicky.

A cute cafe with a very warm and friendly vibe. It's a favourite with the locals, given there were quite a few people coming in to get their caffeine fix and the staff knew them all by name.
