School holidays are nearly over and this will be the last term of Year 11 for Miss B. The emotions are a little high for my youngest daughter and I as the reality sets in that my baby girl has nearly finished the stable land of school. While typing this I am welling up. Another schooling journey to be completed and the last one for my immediate family.
Miss B and I travelled into the city yesterday, where I left her at The Metro Theatre ready to watch a band she loves 21 Pilots. Miss B had been stating that she wanted to go so badly but all the tickets were sold out. Well persistence paid out for her as she was lucky enough to get a ticket at the last minute on Monday night. I had one super happy 16 year old on my hands.
I bought Miss B some sustenance to last her the few hours while she waited in the queue making new friends. She was safe, and I was not far away if she needed me. So I went walkabout around Town Hall and the CBD shopping precinct. I am a huge coffee lover so coffee and cake was my first stop after purchasing the latest issue of Renegade Collective (I forgot to renew my subscription).
La Rose Cafe a charming boutique style cafe located on the mezzanine level in Myer. This place had such a happy and relaxing vibe, which I totally enjoyed and sat for an hour or so. I ordered a skim milk latte and a berry tart. A perfect combination. To add to the ambiance there was great music as well. A must visit for coffee and cake.
Le Pain Quotidien where the coffee is large and the bread is amazing. I ordered the walnut bread which comes served with Lurpak (I always think of Beth from BabyMac when I see or hear the word Lurpak) and I am finding that cafes and restaurants are serving this more often.
Lipari Pizza Rozelle a little boutique style restaurant with loads of atmosphere of families and couples. Last nigh my daughter enjoyed delicious food and fabulous service. I ordered the Parmigiana with eggplant with tomato salsa and grated parmesan and mozarella. Miss R ordered the Gnocchi Gorganzola a homemade potato dumpling with a creamy gorgonzola sauce.
Rosebud Restaurant Darling Street Rozelle is another new place we had brunch on Sunday. This restaurant has a vast breakfast menu for all day with great coffee and service.
As Manu from My Kitchen Rules says 'Bon Appetite'.
