I've been feeling a bit yadda yadda yadda - same same same. Then I came across a real gem of a place.
It's called Kitchen by Mike and Koskela is the store.
Now I am a fan of new exciting places, shops and cafes and this place has opened just around the corner from where I live.
It reminded me of a little bit of Scandinavia within Rosebery, Australia. It's at 85 Dunning Avenue, Rosebery 2015.
It has a fab cafe/restaurant. Casual dining and very yummo healthy food. And I really love my food and cooking.
It's spacious and . industrial. you can sit outside or in. Room for a stroller or two. Got the picture...
Then I moved on from lunch which I'd definitely earned! (I'd been at Basger's Pharmacy in North Bondi doing my usual Wednesday Baby Clinic and advice sessions).
Lunch is healthy organic salads, sourdough loaves baked onsite, homemade foccacia, sourdough rolls with pulled pork and coleslaw.
Pastries, exquisite cakes - I had a lime yoghurt cake, yummo.
Beautiful coffee (I love a really good coffee as most Sydney-siders do). A wine list.
Perfect food and casual dining.
OK now onto the children's bit...I found at the back of the warehouse/store a treasure trove of baby and children's clothing and toys - ALL HAND MADE and of local produce/producers.
Hand crochet and knit cable cardigans fror bub out of the softest Australian Merino wool.
Lovely knitting and crochet.
(I knit and crochet myself and I thought these were exceptional quality and value for money $65 for a merino cardigan, $30 for a crocheted wool beanie.)
They have the coolest toys, from hand knitted and crocheted soft toys to coloured wooden toys that test your child's cognitive function and handmade teepees.
There's hand printed doona covers for your child's bedroom, lovely playrugs. I could go on. As you can tell I lurved it.
It also has a natural home cleaning range and garden equipment, books on sustainable home living and craft ideas. HEAVEN.
OK I'll stop now. Go and see it for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
