We loved The Train Yard on Burgundy Street in Heidelberg! It’s a casual, local eatery with really friendly, accommodating and efficient staff. There are three sections to dine in: alfresco seats at the front, the main inside dining area and an outdoor terrace/beer garden at the back. As it was a sunny winter afternoon we chose the outside terrace and it was perfect. If you get the table next to the outdoor smoker you’ll be even warmer!
We ordered from the breakfast/lunch menu and the food arrived pretty quickly, which is always a plus with hungry kids! We tried the bacon and eggs, the Train Yard salad with fried chicken plus a citrus cured salmon with beetroot; the food was both delicious and filling. There’s a small kids menu which will keep the little ones happy, and when we mentioned the kids would be sharing their meals the staff were more than happy to bring out extra plates for them… no questions asked.
We loved the free colouring in packs the kids received after ordering – perfect for keeping them occupied. And the kids REALLY loved the free marshmallows from the wait staff!! We will definitely be back if we are in the area again, especially to try some of their in-house smoked BBQ meats. It’s the perfect spot to refuel after a few hours at the nearby Possum Hollow playground.
