Start Your Day Sweet With Coco Munch
For the days when your usual brekkie choice of avo on toast or porridge with almonds just doesn’t cut it and you find yourself wistfully longing for a little sweet treat to help you slide into your day, those clever clogs over at Blue Frog have just released Coco Munch, a new chocolatey cereal with 60% less sugar than the usual suspects. Why not feed that nostalgia with these gluten-free puffs and start your day with a smile on your face?
Mochaccino in A Cookie Dough Cup Anyone?
We love a collaboration at the best of times, and when it involves cookies and chocolate milk then it is already a winner. Eat My Lunch are hosting The Cookie Project and Lewis Road Creamery at their new store on Custom’s Street for a morning of indulgence. We are talking a creamy mochaccino served in a cookie dough cup dipped in chocolate... yes, you read right. The best part is that for each combo sold, Eat My Lunch will donate a lunch to a child in need—how good. Head down this Friday 9th from 10am to get involved, it will only cost you a cheeky $10 but there are only 350 combos available so be in quick.
Macs Limited Edition IPA Is Legit
The legends at Macs are at it again with a limited-release White IPA that might just become your new favourite tipple. Introducing Big Dipper—combining two classic beer styles, the hop character of an Indian Pale Ale and the light body and spice of a classic Belgian wheat beer. The golden straw pour is a fairly dry beer with a slight citrus taste, medium hop bitterness and crisp finish, the ultimate post-work wind-down drink, don't you think?
Fancy A Red? We've Got Just The One
It is hard to beat a good glass of red on the chilly winter evenings and we are always on the lookout for delicious new finds. Jim Barry Wines is a South Australian gem, and their Lodge Hill Shiraz might just be our current favourite. The fruit yields from the Clare Valley wine region where the company has been operating for more than 175 years. The medium-bodied shiraz has vibrant red and black berry aromatics with a sweet spice—perfect to enjoy with good food and good friends.
L’affare Are On The Coffee Capsule Train
Experts in all things caffeinated, L’Affare sure are crazy about coffee. Originally specialising in fresh coffee, they realised that sometimes people just don’t have time to faff about making their morning brew so have released a range of coffee capsules. Their fresh specialty coffee capsules are just as smooth and delicious as their fresh coffee and are compatible with Nespresso machines so your morning cup will not only hit the spot but also be speedy to whip up. There's a wide range of flavours to choose from and the capsules are recyclable via TerraCycle—dream result.
Long Lunching With A Tuscan Twist
Long lunches are a true weekend treat where you can take the time to sit back and really enjoy delicious food with great company. Vivace’s annual long lunch is rolling back around this Saturday, and this year with an Italian spin as chef Paolo Pancotti takes the helm. Held at Vivace’s new Fort Street venue, enjoy an afternoon of Tuscan dining including a drink on arrival then savour the four beautiful dishes served up for you. Go on and treat yourself and a special someone to a delightful dining experience, you deserve it. Bookings are essential and can be made directly through the restaurant.
