If there was a prize for best concept for a café it would definitely have to go to Cheatday Sydney.
Not only is it
decked out with the gym theme, complete with dumbbells for table numbers, a
mini gym set up in the corner, and shakes served in protein shaker bottles,
they’ve even got a big glowing sign that reads #eatcakenotkale.
But it’s not just about the environment. They’re well known for their Cheesecake pavlova (another statement worthy of a sign, albeit not a glowing one), and rightly so….we’ll get to that later.
One of my favourite dessert flavours is black sesame, so when I found out Qube on Bay was bringing back their Black Sesame French toast, I was super keen to try.
The location, just a short walk across from Broadway shopping centre, has left me wishing that it had opened just a couple of years earlier when I was still in uni. I’m guessing it probably gets quite busy during the uni semester, but on Saturday afternoon it’s not nearly as packed as I had imagined.
It’s great to see how far the cafe scene in the Hills grown in the past couple of years, and whilst there’s plenty of new cafes to try, one that remains a local favourite is The Local Trade. It’s location next to the playground makes it a popular spot for family’s and it’s buzzing when we pop in for a quick brunch on Sunday morning.
Labld is the kind of cafe you wish existed on your street. It’s quiet and unassuming, but once you’re inside, lively with a great kitchen pumping out a menu filled with diverse options from your standard brekkie fare to more exotic options like dumplings and pancakes.
Unfortunately for us, it’s located on the other side of Sydney, making us super jealous of the locals. But even so, it’s well worth the drive.
Like many cafes, the menu is highly seasonal, and so when Labld invited us to try their new menu, we were only too eager to give it a go. There’s no shortage of delicious options and we’re impressed by range, with some Asian influences, Middle Eastern influences, some healthy veggie filled options and basically everything that I’d want to try!
