Time Out says
The Shire is home to some serious coffee enthusiasts thanks to this great café
The crowd is pretty mixed – there are suits from the local business district, then there’s the muesli crowd, who will sit through from early morning. It’s a good balance though, and a testament to the fact that top-quality coffee doesn’t discriminate.
White Horse is really about coffee and the food menu is café standard, albeit with all the right gourmet touches. The bocconcini, tomato and pesto sandwich is a standout, but the remainder of the food? Well, it’s the usual suspects – banana bread, muesli, croissants.
There are few cafés worth travelling a distance for but White Horse is one of them - unless, of course, you already live in the Shire, in which case just go there. The vibe is good, but the coffee is better – and to be surrounded by people at the top of their game is refreshing.
