Mid-week Lunch Run - Provisions Creperie, Braidwood - 26 June 2024

A convoy of classics and moderns departed the Supercheap Auto carpark in Queanbeyan for a quick dash along the Kings Highway to Braidwood for lunch at Provisions Deli and Creperie. For the record, the convoy comprised two Stags, a 1970 Holden HG Kingswood, an Audi TT Quatro and two Subaru SUVs. Sadly, one green Stag remained in the carpark after a pool of coolant (colour coded to the car!) was detected below the radiator.

The trip was uneventful and the temporary traffic lights on a one-way section subject to roadworks resulted in only a minor delay. Parking was not a problem given that the venue is at the far end of town, on the corner where a left-hand turn takes you to the south coast.

The venue is a historic two storey building with first floor covered verandas on three sides. Diners are accommodated in several rooms on the ground floor, supplemented by an outdoor eating area. We dined in a cosy front room well suited space wise for our group of fourteen diners.

Service was quite prompt and the food was excellent, with more traditional toasties available for those not tempted by the Breton galettes. If you have a sweet tooth, a fine selection of crepes and cakes is available to complement an after-dinner coffee.

Max and Faye chose to take a walk along Braidwood’s historic main street and down to Car Models of Braidwood while others set off for a leisurely drive home. The Wades enjoyed a chauffeured trip back to Queanbeyan in Jack and Jenny’s Subaru and can report that Diane’s Stag made an uneventful trip home to Kambah with no sign of overheating and no further coolant loss! Up on the ramps for a closer inspection of the plumbing!
