It was a family day out and whilst shopping, mumsy and daddy bear got a touch thirsty, thirsty for some caffeine. Luckily we were shopping in Emporium and a cute little cafe named Cafe Blush caught our eye. Cafe Blush is a Japanese inspired cafe and mumsy bear thought it was the cutest cafe ever. We were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to our table immediately.
Mumsy bear got a cappuccino and it was totes creamy. However, it wasn’t smooth or strong at all and it wasn’t fragrant either which was disappointing.
After brunch, the girlies and I decided that we needed a sugar hit and since we were in South Melbourne, why not hit up Bibelot?! So off we went on another dessert adventure.It was super busy inside but luckily we managed to get a table for 5. Since we were all full (pants bursting at the seams) we got 4 cakes to share and two scoops of ice-cream (yeah, girls have a dessert tummy FYI). Each cake was $9.50 and they all looked absolutely divine!
Wondering around in the city for date day, Mr D decided he needed coffee so we decided on Laurent since Mr D hasn’t been to the one in the city. After what feels like a gazillion years later, we finally found the building and it was GORGEOUS (shame I forgot to take a photo of it though). Mr D got an ice coffee since it was 31 degrees (summer has finally come) and as usual, he wasn’t impressed with it at all. He just shrugged and finished his drink.
Wondering around in the city lagging behind Mr D while he looks at more sneakers (yes, how many sneakers does one actually need?) and I realised that I needed a sugar hit. So where do we decide to go? Cupcake central at MC of course.
It was our last night in Rome which meant our last night of our amazing European holiday and I was getting a little sad with the quality of food I was encountering. Mr D and I both agreed that we’re going to go away from the main roads and straight into the alley ways (recommend going into alleyway with another person…not alone haha). After what seemed like HOURS of walking, we stumbled across this quaint and adorable place where the signage was of a robin in a tux (HOW ADORABLE IS THAT?) and they only had an italian menu. This place gave me a good feeling so in we went.
Catch up with the girlies and this time we decided on Jinda Thai since one of the girls wanted to give it a go. We had to book it one week in advance on for a Wednesday night at 7PM. I turned up and it was of course raining (gees, thanks winter Melbourne) and Miss Panda and I rushed in while waiting for Miss Train (a story from Malaysia!).
It was date day and Mr D took me to a little hidden cafe in Melbourne CBD (he knows I love those hidden places) and it looked like it was literally in someone’s teeny house. We stepped in and the decor was amazingly adorable with little pot plants everywhere. Be warned though, there is very limited seating (in other words real cosy). We were lucky enough to found a table and ordered our coffees! My latte was pretty good, not amazing but still very decent. Look how cute the swan is though (YAY!!).
We had a double date for lunch and I was responsible for finding a venue. Took a random stab and chose Cobb Lane in Yarraville since I love the smell of fresh bread in bakeries. They don’t take bookings so we decided to turn up at noon (should have thought this through more carefully) but luckily we got a table just as we arrived. The place is very small and cosy and as you step in you just smell the bread (mmmm bread).
