This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
An oasis in the Cessnock food desert, Cherry and Heather is a tiny deli-cafe offering gourmet sandwiches along with vegan soups, hot and cold speciality drinks and home-baking. The menu is full of interesting and tasty combinations such as beetroot, honeyed goat’s cheese pâté and mixed seeds, or kaffir lime and lemongrass chicken with red peppers. Dishes are peppered with Southeast Asian influences such as the meatball sandwich with peanut sauce or delicious Indonesian-style chicken noodle soup. Despite the compact space, they also manage to cram in a few seats and sell a small range of goods to take away including luxury biscuits, tea, chocolate and porridge. Genuinely worth a special trip to Cessnock.
