Ballan is a small town about 30 mins away from us. It is a pretty sleepy place, but it has this rather eccentric and lovely cafe. I think it is called the Teapot Cafe, certainly it is filled with teapots. I love the jumble of op shop decor inside and Gaudi-esque mosaics in the garden. Great cups of tea too, love, love, love this place! Just when you think it couldn't get any better the lady tells you they have a vintage clothing shop in the back room! I spotted an original 1950s skirt for $8!
