When you’re meeting up with a group and there’s someone that’s vegan, we thought we would cater to them and check out a vegan restaurant so they can pick whatever they want to eat. On Nicholson street sits a quiet vegan eatery called Billy and Lucy. Billy and Lucy, on the outside it looks old and humble but inside, it’s cosy with fireplaces and very welcoming. The staff are so friendly and so accommodating that you feel like you’re at home.
Rustica has always been on my list but I’ve never managed to make it to Hawthorn or Fitzroy, BUT it has now opened in Melbourne Central so, of course we made our way there. Yep, it was smack bang in the shopping centre and there was an indoor and an ‘outside’ area. We plopped our butts in the ‘outside’ area and it was set up so well that we forgot that we were in a shopping centre.
After landing in Hobart in the wee hours in the morning, we stopped by Pigeon hole cafe to grab some breakfast. Since Hobart isn’t that big, it didn’t take long before we got there and there were ample parking around. The cafe was quite busy on a Friday morning and we rushed in to grab a table. The staff greeted us oh so friendly and warmly and we knew we stepped into the right cafe to wake us up.
Hawthorn, home to the hustle and bustle of shops and heaps of cafes in the area, Le Clec sits nestled away. It looks super small but there’s a huge courtyard at the back with more seating with french inspired brunch dishes on for show, I could not wait to check out their new menu.
I got up early in the morning to roam around the beach to find a place for breakkie before I had to meet my co-workers to start our work day. Walking along I found Liquid Gold Beach Cafe and decided to drop by for something healthy (well, what I’d like to think as healthy anyway). Shame that there were constructions going on and I couldn’t have an awesome view of the beach inside the cafe. Nonetheless I went inside and was greeted by friendly staff.
Healthy eating has been creeping up slowly and slowly on my preference when looking for food. Spiral Beans in Preston has ticked that box and has been opened since November 2016 (only a month or so) and is the new and improved version of Disco Beans. Spiral Beans offers whole food in their most natural state limiting the processed and refined elements. Spiral Beans offers contemporary cooking methods with traditional Japanese flavours.
Being an owner of a fitbit, joining the gym and looking for alternative healthy foods, you could say I’ve been trying to get more healthy (key word = trying). I’ve always been a fan of Ocean Spray cranberry juice for detoxing (or with some vodka if you’re feeling a bit naughty) and was excited to hear that they had a low sugar option.
