Goodness Gracious

IMG_3447

I’ve been salivating over Goodness Gracious’ instagram for months, and this weekend we finally made it out to this little gem! A picturesque cafe filled with cute props (loving the cushions & potted plants) and colourful furniture! The cafe opens up into a spacious garden area where you can enjoy a bit of the gorgeous sun!

Sourcing all ingredients from local suppliers, Goodness Gracious purveys a range of delicious, healthy, and creative dishes (all made on site!), with an all-day breakfast and lunch seasonal menu.

KIN + Co cafe – otherwise known as “the place where I had one of the best coffees ever!”
Today we tried their clean skin house blend – rich cacao and caramel notes paired with silken soy milk. Satisfaction level at an all new high : )

IMG_3423The latest addition to Macquarie Street – we were very excited when we saw renovations in progress earlier in the year, curious as to what would sprout from the spot opposite the famous “giraffe unit” (there is a random giraffe nestled in some one’s front yard)! KIN + Co has a coffee window facing the street for quick takeaways, a small alfresco dining area, as well as a cosy interior with shiny subway tiles and white bentwood chairs.

I see a swan, what do you see?

IMG_3428IMG_3422Love how the menu tucks into the cutlery stand!

Mushroom bagel – mmm…!

Their famous shakshuka with a side of spicy sausage – the sauce was deliciously tangy and not sour at all, plus the sausage was really crunchy – highly recommend ordering it as a side to any of the savoury dishes!

Morning After West End

IMG_3405

Morning After – the latest edition to the West End food scene – bears an intriguingly dubious name. Designed to placate the rumbling tums of those recovering from a wild night out (it’s like the mother ship is calling out to me…)! Brought to us by restauranteur Yianni Passaris (of dell’Ugo), this bright and modern new space was realised by Alexander Lotersztain (!!!). The concept provides a refreshing, open environment with lots of natural light, and a welcoming ambience for groups to mingle. Morning After is the perfect encapsulation of our “chilled Aussie brunch”.

A great blend of natural and man-made materials to create sharp lines, with a communal dining bench and casual bar top areas looking out onto both street corners.
I love those lawn-like stools and the abundance of green and plants!

IMG_3403IMG_3404The food – a well curated affair! Sourcing local ingredients where possible, the menu is delicious and healthy, with the magical ability to rejuvenate any gluttonous drinker!

Hand rolled ink linguine, prawns, cherry tomatoes, basil, chilli and bottarga
the texture of the linguine is just incredible, and I loved the kick from the chilli.

Yiro fans should stop by on Saturdays!
