It wasn't until closer to breakfast time that I discovered the Middle Head trail.
Of course, the term "buffet" holds minimal meaning to me. Those with limited stomach space will agree that it's merely an opportunity to consume a greater quantity for a greater price.
The restaurant we had pulled into offered a grand selection of three flavours: Chocolat Chip Cookie Dough, Maple Walnut, and French Vanilla. Retailed at a ridiculously affordable price of $4.50 (waffle cone included!), I had expected mediocre value. Yet, the outcome was the exact opposite: French Vanilla contained fragrant specks of vanilla bean, while Maple Walnut was sweet and crunchy. Scotsburn honestly puts Kawartha to shame.
The eatery was relatively empty for a weekend afternoon, so we slid into our booth of choice. Quickly spotting an outlet, I dashed back to the car to retrieve my laptop.
Our first encounter with the waitress was met with a cordial yet authoritative "Please put your orange juice away. We don't allow outside food, sweetie." She was hawk-eyed and, as we discovered afterwards, very attentive and efficient.
We regretted not trying the Fish & Chips, for it was a quintessential battered item in such foundations.
