Gigi Pizzeria on King

Gigi Pizzeria on King
Gigi Pizzeria combines two of my favourite things… food and street art! Gigi’s offers a range of great Italian dishes and delicious pizzas with a fanstastic wall of graffiti as a backdrop created by the super talented Ears (who I have a big graffiti crush on!). Nothing beats a great calzone and Gigi’s does an awesome one with ricotta and prosciutto, so good in fact that I have had...

Cook for a Cure is a new nationwide community event, launched by Research Australia and running for the month... 

Ramen Bar…Art in a bowl

Ramen Bar...Art in a bowl
The Ramen Bar is a relative newbie on the Inner West block. It opened in March this year and has a unique location inside the Berkelouw Books store on O’Connell Street in Newtown (just off King Street). For those who might not be familiar with ramen, it is a delicious traditional Japanese noodle soup.  The Ramen Bar has 10 ramen dishes to choose from and I can best describe them as “art... 

Inner West Caffeine Hit List

Inner West Caffeine Hit List
Whether you are a serious caffeine addict or just an occasional recreational user this will be a very valuable list to keep handy. Some of you may have picked up The Sydney Morning Herald Good Cafe Guide for 2011, but for those of you who didn’t, here it it. The guide rates the cafes who have the best coffee and there are several Inner West winners. The cafes are rated by cups (similar to the... 

Bitton Cafe + so much more

Bitton Cafe + so much more
Is it any wonder why I can no longer fit into my jeans when I am surrounded by so many great cafes in the Inner West that I just HAVE to try. Bitton Cafe and Grocer on Copeland Street, Erkskineville has been on my list for a while and it certainly didn’t disappoint! Everytime I walk past Bitton Cafe it seems to be completely packed. To avoid disappointment on the weekend we booked to ensure... 

I’m a famous potato!

I'm a famous potato!
Not only am I an Inner West addict but I should also seek professional help regarding my addiction to potatoes. I love them. It doesn’t matter if they are mashed, roasted, fried, boiled – you name it, I will eat it! So I was very excited when I stumbled across the Highland Gourmet Potato stall at the Eveleigh Farmers Market on the weekend and met Norman. I mean how can I not love potatoes... 

Petty Cash Cafe on Enmore Park

Petty Cash Cafe on Enmore Park
Cute! Cute! Cute! I love this place. I visited the Petty Cash Cafe for the first time on the weekend (thanks to a recommendation of my friend Mark) and I have fallen in love! There are so many great things about this place…. where to start? Ok, maybe I should narrow it down to the top 10 things I love about Petty Cash Cafe otherwise I could be here all day! 1. Location – right across from... 

Pastizzi Cafe and their little bundles of goodness

Pastizzi Cafe and their little bundles of goodness
What was once referred to as the arse end of King Street, South King Street is now a hive of great restaurants and cafes, vintage stores and shops which sell great art, clothing and accesories. I am a huge fan of the south end! The Pastizzi Cafe with its little bundles of puff pastry goodness is well worth the walk down to the south end of King. Sure, it wouldn’t pass as a Weight Watchers... 

Pram Dayz

Pram Dayz
One of those Days!!! It was a lovely sunny Autumn Sunday and my husband suggested we take a walk and try out the new cafe/restaurant – Bar Nosh on Swanson St, Erskineville. Unfortunately we didn’t realize at this stage that our toddler was just coming down with a fever, and while he is quite well cafe – trained, things are never good when he is sick. First there was an irrational... 

The Different Drummer

The Different Drummer
I’ve lived in Glebe for the past 3 months and I had shockingly never ventured out around Glebe Point Road at night time. The street is bursting with beautiful restaurants, a few pubs and some smaller bars. It is my mission to eventually visit them all but on a student budget this may take several years! One bar that’s always caught my eye is Different Drummer. Any night of the week it seems to...
