Ginger’s Coffee Studio

October 7, 2013 by


Remember those orange vinyl chairs that your grandparents relegated to the back verandah because they were too loud for a modern kitchen? Or the warty green glass vase in the china cabinet? You know the one, nestling near the sugar pot decorated with geometric orange and brown fruit. These are the items you’ll need when […]

Hector’s on the Wharf

August 5, 2012 by


The countryside around Adelaide is dotted with little towns that were transport hubs in South Australia’s early days. There are ports on the gulf and on the Murray. Not to mention the innumerable railway towns, many of which carried agricultural produce or mining products to the Murray or the Gulf of St Vincent for shipping […]

April 21, 2010 by

A mixture of booths and tables allows for different size groups to sit together, which is convenient whether you’re […]

A recent review by Two-KG said that the desserts at George’s Cafe were a failure, so I was puzzled to walk past the other night and see this cafe bursting at the seams. Sunday nights are busy in Burwood, but this was a rainy night and many cafes were only half full. This was certainly […]

Poetry at Sappho Books and Cafe

March 13, 2009 by


I love the candles at Poetry Night at Sappho. They provide a warm glow, or an evening of waxy pyromania, depending on your inclination. If you’re biased to the pyro side you do need to be careful though. It’s all too easy to burn yourself. Alloronan had problems when her candle reached critical point and […]
