Coromandel, Rome

After a 25 hour flight from Sydney to Roma (Rome) with a stopover in Hong Kong, we were a bit tired but eager to hit the ground running and use our feet! When the Cathay flight landed in Rome, we took the Leonardo Express train to Termini train station (the...

White Taro, Surry Hills

So we wanted to walk all the way to Gratia, but didn’t quite make it there. Since the Hills Buses no longer go to Railway Square, it’s made us a bit lazier to travel to Surry Hills and beyond. We started climbing the hill and settled on this cafe instead....

Koi Dessert Bar, Chippendale

One of the great things about the Central Park development is actually how it’s revitalised all the alleyways and streets surrounding it. Kensington Street is now packed with food court, hawker inspired eateries and terrace houses turned mini art shops and galleries. The laneway is sometimes closed for street festivals...

Axil Coffee Co, Kirribilli

On a weekend, we headed out to Kirribilli Wharf to have brunch and then take the ferry around. The plan was to ferry over to Circular Quay and then Watsons Bay for a walk, but the day was against us with rain and gloomy skies. At Kirribilli Wharf, literally, on...

Folonomo, Surry Hills

So after talking about Folonomo and failed attempts to get there, we finally made a booking to try this place out. Part of the problem was that Folonomo is on Bourke Street, Surry Hills, which isn’t one of the closest streets to the main drag. Also, when one is hungry,...

Three Williams, Redfern

When we went on our furniture hunt last year in Alexandria and Waterloo, we finally realised where Three Williams in Redfern is. Conveniently between two furniture shops! So when they had a Tait sale, we made the excuse to go back and rather than buying any furniture, we bought some...

Daci & Daci Bakers, Hobart

Ah Tasmania! We came to Daci & Daci Bakers in Hobart both this time and last time around actually. Last time, we had a snoop inside but we didn’t actually get a chance to go in and try anything (like those giant meringues). It has been on my Tas hit...

Nourished, Avalon

We recently went up to the Northern Beaches for the Mark Tuckey furniture sale. It’s a bit of a long drive from the Hills area (about 1 hour), but we headed out early and made a bee-line for this super healthy cafe. It also turned out to be super popular....

Neuw Amsterdam-3 0

Nieuw Amsterdam, Melbourne

Last year, we had visited Nieuw Amsterdam, but arrived a bit late in the night so the downstairs bar area was pretty empty! We still ordered drinks though, including a mocktail for me, which turned out to be quite alcoholic! This time, we made a booking and went on our...

Jetty Cafe, Bruny Island (Tasmania)

On our last day in Tasmania, we were heading back from Bruny Island to Hobart to fly out that evening. We woke up to a cloudier day than the past week and made the 2 minute walk up to the Jetty Cafe. This place looks great with these warm finished...

Cafe Oratnek, Redfern

A couple of weeks ago, we went around the Alexandria, Waterloo and other industrial parts of Sydney to do some furniture shopping. There’s quite a trail of shops and designers that you can visit, where they do custom and made to order pieces. Afterwards, we hopped over to this place...

Taxi Kitchen-7 0

Taxi Kitchen, Melbourne

Catching up on the Melbourne posts…. In the center of Federation Square is a squat building. On the top level is Taxi Kitchen, which gives you views of the Flinders Street station, the Yarra River and the square filled with buskers and foot traffic. We came here on the Queen’s...

Hotel Bruny, Bruny Island (Tasmania)

South of Hobart is a “small” island known as Bruny Island. In the New Year of 2016, we took the ferry from Kettering to Bruny Island. It’s a relaxing 20-30 minute journey across the water then Bruny Island is one main and long road with paddocks everywhere! On New Years...

The Pelican’s Bill Bistro, Scamander (Tasmania)

After driving to the East Coast to see the beautiful Bays of Fire, we headed down to the town of Scamander as that was where our accommodation for the night was. We had booked quite late for our December / NY’s Tasmania trip, so we didn’t really have a choice....

TAS-234 0

Inside Cafe, Launceston (Tasmania)

For breakfast in Launceston, we woke up and drove around a little to get a lay of the land. The morning hunt for breakfast in a new place is always a challenge. Especially during the Christmas/NY break, a lot of cafes that I thought looked good turned out to be...
