We can make another future: Japanese art after 1989

Last week Chloe and I (Bree) had a lazy day out in Brisbane, spending most of the day laying under trees or in soft patches of grass and the rest of the time drinking coffee or perusing art galleries.

Garden of Eden, Coolangatta

Looking for a healthy spot for lunch Garden of Eden‘s store and cafe in Coolangatta is a nice choice. I can’t go past Gozleme on a menu but I must admit I had some serious jealousy over the nachos!

Looking forward to attending one of their Raw Food Classes sometime!

An afternoon with Mabel

So there is so many wonderful things popping up in Palm Beach but let me tell you about one of my favourites. Let me tell you about green paths & red leaves, handmade spoons & wire baskets, fancy cheese & fancy salami, beds with built in side tables & bicycles hanging on walls. Let me tell you about 1061 Gold Coast Highway.

Christmas party at Zipang

Zipang, the new venture of Atsu formerly of Genki Cafe, is relatively new to Currumbin and just another reason Currumbin Creek Road is my favourite place! We made the sweets for the East Coast Dental Services & Denman Designs combined Christmas Party held at Zipang in December and we were lucky enough to be invited to crash the party!

Caffeinated Gold Coast: Blackboard Coffee

We knew we were trying our luck heading to Blackboard Coffee towards the end of the day and wanting, desperately, to get our hands on a pair of doughnuts. We were right, they were sold out. I hate being right. Then we hear they are not just of doughnuts but all sweets, you could have heard our hearts break. It’s just about to hit 3pm and we squeeze in the very last food order of the day. Happy again.

Cenzo, Murwillumbah

While in Murwillumbah, and as hungry as a pack of wolves, we ran around trying to find the “perfect” place for lunch. The hunger had made us crazy and nothing, including a few eateries that looked absolutely delicious, was the right place for us this day. We grumpily “settled” with Cenzo, the hangry has had us completely miss the stunning decor. As the food settled in our stomached and the coffee invigorated us we started noticing the gorgeous vintage sugar bowls and enamel water jugs. We noticed the wonderfully colourful women who had served us and I instantly grew jealous of her style.  We noticed puppies with old men walking by. We noticed that life most definitely is better when you’re not a hangry monster.

Caffeinated Gold Coast: Commune


Back in the day before Commune I always dreamed of turning the little old butchers shop with the stunning breezeblocks into a cafe. Thank god someone did because it’s a beautiful space. I love the vibe of this place, the vines growing up the outer walls, the mix matched vintage furniture and Campos is always a winner.

A day on Currumbin Creek Road

Now really, I think I have found my favourite place. Currumbin Creek Road. I’m loving this street for the same reasons I used to love Nobby’s so much – then the op shops went away and so did I.  Now let me run you though my perfectly wonderful day…
