I DID get out & about for coffee (of course) - and all those places, new or revisits, were tweeted - but my 'tweet first, blog second' mantra meant that I visited more cafes than I actually took photos of.
So, here's the list of those cafes I visited again in November & December that I did get some snaps of - offering a brief glimpse of where I've been. I didn't lug the big camera to these cafes - just used the little Lumix (it fits in my pocket and is my new all purpose and go anywhere picture taker) - but still tried to capture the essence of each place. If, I've got more images for any of them, I'll do an individual post. If not, I will revisit!
Also, I've just been through and cleared the light-box on my little iphone app - and found a whole lot more cafes that I'd only managed to get to once - and some I do need to revisit to add to this blog.
The upshot of this is I guess I'm going to be busy - but this should be fun ... there's always a new cafe 'round the corner, in the country or near the beach!
Deus Cafe, Camperdown - a favourite place for brunch, sometimes lunch and dinner - there's the attached shop selling all things bikes (and even surfboards), for adults & kids alike.
DiVi Espresso Bar, Lilyfield - near my son's school so it's oft my morning coffee (and chat) & s'times my pre-pickup pick-me-up. Beans are roasted on the premises - and there's often a new coffee to try.
Flood Street Carousel, Leichhardt - newly opened & a recent discovery - tables, chairs, lounges and room2move
Harry's Espresso Bar, Bondi Beach - at the northern end of the beach, so mostly locals - with great coffee, cakes & lunch. Opposite Camilla's Beach House if you need to shop and you've left the kids at home.
Tisu Cafe, Balmain - quick and easy stop for a coffee or snack - busy with school mums in the mornings.
Il Vizio, Leichhardt - not often you get a good coffee & food spot near a supermarket - but this one's a keeper!
