Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Dough Box Sweet and Savoury Delights
I love my late night treats at Dough Box on Enmore Road.The ‘Melted Moment’ crepe is my favourite (nutella, white chocolate, strawberries and marshmellows) and their savoury crepes look delicious as well. Fiona and George opened Dough Box about a year ago and a big thanks to both of them for taking the time to answer some questions about their Inner West business. Next time you’re... 

Interview with Street/Scenic Artist: Eoin

When I was lucky enough to see him working on a piece in Camperdown Park I jumped at the opportunity to have a chat with this talented artist. His stunning style is immediately recogniseable and grabs the attention of everyone who walks past his work. I can’t wait to see... 

Fleetwood Macchiato, Erskineville

Fleetwood Macchiato, Erskineville
Two visits to Fleetwood Macchiato in one week… I’m addicted! I can’t go past their smashed egg breakfast roll with mustard aioli, pickles, avocado, mushroooms and ham.

Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Nom Pizza, Marrickville
For those of you who are “I Love the Inner West’ Facebook fans, you will be very familiar with my Nom Pizza addiction. I did want the honor of being the first person to try all the pizzas off their menu but somebody beat me to it. My failure in this task was largely due to the fact that I discovered several favourites along the way and I kept ordering those instead of trying something...

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street
Every time I head to Newtown I love walking past the Crumpler store to see if there’s been a new street art creation on the wall outside the store. On the weekend I noticed the Skulk design had been replaced with a new artwork by street artist SMC3. This is the same artist that painted the fantastic characters on the walls inside the Japanese Restaurant, Kuki Tanuki on Erskineville Road. For...
