Sunday (although I have sort of lost track of the days)

Aaahhhh.... Sunday.

Sunday usually begins with a question.

Are we going to eat out for breakfast or not? And if we are - where to go? Today began with such a quandary and in the end we plumped for a walk down to Maling Road to a cafe we had not been to before.... This was not because we were being daring, or original though - it was because our 'favouritest' is closed until next weekend as it is Summer hols here in Australia and many small businesses are closed until next week or even to the middle of January - (Shock, horror - HOW do they get away with that!!)

However, we probably should have stayed home as to be honest the breakfast was rather disappointing and it started so well with the coffees served first (photographed above).......

Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Still, next time we will learn - better to stick to tried and tested than to try something you are not too sure about (guess you could use that as a blueprint for life though I would imagine it would be a bit dull!)

Tomorrow I am going to go (with BN) to the city (Melbourne CBD) to look at/check out that coffee place I wrote about a while back - 'Divine Decoration in a Deli' - December 21st - should be fun....
Au Revoir.


  1. I also hate that when you have high expectations and the coffee/food is not good. Unfortunately it happens a lot here in France so we tend to go to places that we know. I love a good "salon du the" but unfortunately we do not have one in the village. I am trying to persuade a friend of mine to open one :-) I really miss the cafe culture of Sydney and Melbourne as it really makes a Sunday morning.

    A bientot,

    Leeann x the kiwi who loves a strong flat white!

  2. Yes, Leeann you and me both - has to be a strong (except in those amazing Italian Australian coffee places - eg Brunettis in Melbourne - a legend amongst cafes- where ordinary flat white is very strong! ) Hope your friend opens a Salon due The for you!

  3. No, I think it's better to take the risk and be disappointed. But it's easy for me to say that, miss stuck-in-the-mud and totally-risk-averse :)
    Anyway, at least you'll know not to go there again!

  4. Hi there

    I came across your blog at Faux Fuschia's.

    I really like what you've written and your pictures and reviews.

    On the topic of cafes - I walked to my fave brunching place yesterday and saw a note on the door - 'closed for Christmas period and not open until 27 January'! Ludicrous - 27 January!

    I've added you to my blog list and will visit again soon
