We went into a couple of stores and I felt this compulsive need to get something because the equipment
looked so cool - over the course of the afternoon, I convinced myself I needed a potato masher, a set of cheese knives,
a juicer that promised '5 times more vitamins in your juice' and a two-tiered cake stand (even though I don't bake lol). They were so pretty!
I am moving into a new apartment. I need these things.
Thankfully, Jo put her foot down and yanked me out of the shop.
We were then drawn to Padre by the strong coffee aroma that was emanating from its counter, and had flat whites over a tray of Tasmanian oysters. The place was crowded, with locals having coffee in and to go.
It seems like the coffee here is courtesy of the crew behind Brunswick East Project, and was voted as the best coffee in Melbourne for 2013. I found it good, but a bit too citrusy for my liking. Personally, I still think Haymarket Place does the most stellar flat white and I would recommend giving that a go.
