This iconic restaurant is housed in a heritage listed building in The Rocks and was established in the early 90’s.

Welsh Rabbit

One of the things I miss about Perth is Fiori coffee beans. As much as I’m loving the aspect of trying new coffee beans, sometimes you just want the familiar. I’m also missing the expertly made coffee at Ingredient Tree in Wembley, which uses Genovese coffee beans and has become another favourite of mine. Here…

Nothing to Fault @ Hardware Société, Melbourne CBD, VIC

Our favourite breakfast during our Melbourne trip was at The Hardware Société, which A discovered through Urbanspoon. We both decided we had to try it after we noticed it had 6994 votes but held a 90% positive rating – a pretty good indication it was worth a visit. When we arrived, we had to wait…
