Hudsons Coffee GIVEAWAY!

You may remember I recently tried Hudsons Coffee’s new Barista’s Choice Blend beans (say that five times fast). I also popped into an actual Hudsons Cafe the other day to try one that the experts made, and needless to say they did a heck of a better job than I...

Quick Bites: Hudsons New Barista’s Choice Blend

Am I a bold person? Well, no, not particularly. My ideas of being bold is asking the flight attendant for a second UHT milk capsule for my coffee. I secretly take multiple salt and pepper packets from McDonald’s. And yes, that’s right, I’ve been rocking the same haircut since I...

South Bank Surf Club

Why are there hardly any river-front bars in Brisbane? Okay, let’s take Fridays and the like out of the equation. Seriously, for a city that dedicates a yearly festival to the damn river, there’s not many restaurants and bars taking advantage of the views. Thankfully, South Bank has a new-ish...

Jeremy’s

                I am a major procrastinator. I always put off things like cleaning my room, because I’d rather 1) pick all the raisins out of the muesli and eat them, 2) lie on my bed and read six month old issues of NW...

Spotlight: Tognini’s Spring Hill Re-Opening

Man, I love a good deli. There’s something about a huge, viewable range of fresh produce, cheeses, meats, and antipasti that just excites me. Perhaps I was meant to be born an elegant, sexy gal from Perugia, and not a bumbling, is-that-really-another-food-stain-on-my-shirt chick from Canada. Tognini’s has been somewhat of an...

Coffee and Chocolate Mini Review

Pretty but Pricey Everyone loves teeny tiny chocolates, especially when they’re displayed in a glass case. People crouch in front of the case, making little ‘ooh’ noises, and giving murmurs of advice to their friends on which chocolate to get. On a recent pit stop at Coffee & Chocolate in...

Cicada Review

Cool Confusion I hate Crocs. Not because they’re sort of ugly (apologies to any Crocs lovers out there). I hate them because as a shoe, they fail. What are they? Are they gardening shoes? Are they shoes to wear in the shower at the gym? Are they casual weekend shoes?...

Hidden DelightSometimes you feel like being a bit of a coffee snob. “Gloria Jeans? Starbucks? The Coffee Club? Pah! I want coffee from a unique, boutique cafe!” Get off your damn soapbox. Capitalism isn’t out to ruin you. I do agree though with the delight in a good brew that...

Extract Espresso Bar Review

Simple CBD munchiesNow that I’m an unemployed loser, there’s one thing that I miss about working (aside from the money thing and the stationery cupboard). Weekday city cafes. There are seriously tonnes of quirky little places all over the CBD that sadly close their doors on the weekend. If you’re...

Boardwalk Bar and Bistro Review

Ah, 5pm on Friday. The end of the working week and the start of the weekend. I, like so many city dwellers mark this point in the week by grabbing my sociable co-workers and making a beeline for the pub. Over the years I’ve tried pretty much every bar there...
