Woodworks

We are always keen to try out new places in our ever-sprawling city, so Claudia and Laura headed to Woodworks in Avondale recently for lunch. It's a relatively new spot offering breakfast and a full day bistro menu, in addition to takeaway pizzas. The cafe is a large, spacious area with plenty of natural lighting, which is great if you're with … Continue reading Woodworks

4&20 Bakery

Our little local, 4&20 Bakery is the place to go if you're after artisan bread,  sandwiches, pastries and fresh baking. They use organic and free-range ingredients where possible, and everything is made by hand. You can also grab yourself an organic coffee, tea or juice. The cafe is small but has a huge kitchen out the back where the magic … Continue reading 4&20 Bakery

Five Loaves Eatery

Charlotte and I unintentionally ended up at Five Loaves Eatery yesterday morning for coffee and given I was peckish, thought it'd be rude not to get some breakfast and write a little review. It's a trendy place to grab and go, or munch on something at one of their few road-side tables. There is top quality … Continue reading Five Loaves Eatery

Catroux

This morning we visited Catroux in Westmere. We reviewed the cafe a while ago for lunch, but this time we tried the seasonal brunch menu and  were very impressed by the food. We like the design of the cafe with its all-white interiors making it feel larger than it is. The space is dominated by a glass … Continue reading Catroux

Yesterday Laura and I visited for breakfast, while Charlotte made a trip today to try out … Continue reading Little Bird Unbakery

It is a bagel shop of sorts, where artisan bagels are hand rolled and wood fired in front of your eyes, then served up … Continue reading Best Ugly Bagels

Ripe delicatessen

We can't get enough of Ripe delicatessen at the moment, although Charlotte has been obsessed with their food for quite sometime now! It is one of the many foodie-stops on Richmond road, but really stands out with their array of incredible, fresh creations for take-away (there are a few tables and seats outside if you're … Continue reading Ripe delicatessen

Sweetiepie Cupcakes

Laura finished her exams for the year this morning, so as a celebratory treat we went to Sweetiepie Cupcakes! They make the hands-down cutest cupcakes we have ever seen, and also taste heavenly. We thought they'd nailed the shop design from the window down to the checkered black and white floor, creating a girly pink sweet … Continue reading Sweetiepie Cupcakes
