General Store Café: "Pause for refreshment" Hillsboro Restaurant Tip by toonsarah
Hillsboro Restaurants: 1 reviews and 3 photos
There are a couple of eating options in Hillsboro. The Barbershop Café was recommended in our Moon Handbook and looked lovely both inside and out, but as we were just looking for a cold drink we decided instead on the more casual General Store. This lovely old building is part of a larger structure destroyed in the 1914 flood. In the past it has housed a bank, a post office, a general store and a drug store. Today it is a friendly establishment clearly popular with locals as well as passers-by like us. The interior retains much of its former character with old shop fixtures and fittings, but as it was pretty full with customers enjoying a late Saturday breakfast and we only wanted a drink, we took our orange juices out to the shady porch where we enjoyed watching laid-back Hillsboro go about its morning business.
Directions: On the south side of the road in the middle of town. There’s a small parking lot on the east side with a colourful mural (see photo two)
