Du Liban Marrickville

REVIEW: Du Liban, Marrickville

Du Liban means ‘From Lebanon’ in French. Why then is this Lebanese bakery & coffee roaster named in French?  I don’t know the answer to that, but my guess is the influence of French fare on an otherwise, Lebanese & Middle Eastern menu. The obscure location, tucked away on a small industrial street of Marrickville,…

Gather in the Green

Gather on the Green

To stumble upon a great cafe is like winning the lotto! Ok maybe not the lotto (not that I’d know what that felt like anyway), but for someone who loves food (like me), it comes close. A few weeks ago, we did just that!  We were driving around Camperdown biding time before picking up a…

Cornersmith

Cornersmith

True to the name, Cornersmith sits on the corner of Illawarra Road & Petersham Road, and focuses on local & small scale craft (fare). The cafe is small making seating very limited.  We arrived early on a Sunday morning (around 8am) and were lucky to snab the last available table.  By the time we left,…

Edmonds & Greer

In quiet, leafy suburbia – Oatley, Sydney – Edmonds & Greer sits contentedly on the corner of Mulga Street & Mi Mi Street. A friend introduced me to this Home Decor – Gift Shop – Cafe a few years ago for a coffee & treat.  I’ve been back a few times since for brunch and…

It’s a great little cafe` that I recommend you try if you’re in that neck…

The Boronia TeaRoom

The Boronia TeaRoom

While many folk were slugging it out up heartbreak hill for the City2Surf today, I was at Mosman with my chicks experiencing High Tea at The Boronia TeaRoom. Set in a grand mansion with sweeping balconies and manicured gardens, the Boronia TeaRoom (formely Boronia House built in 1885) is a charming place to share this…

Gasolina Espresso and Kitchen

Gasolina Espresso and Kitchen

Located in an unusual spot for this calibre (underneath newly developed apartments and towards the north end of the Ramsgate shopping district), Gasolina Espresso and Kitchen is serving up great Italian breakfast and lunch fare. Its noisy being situated on busy Rocky Point Road, but that is not stopping the crowds.  We arrived for brunch…
