Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Mascot (8 Sept 2018)

7 Ross Smith Ave, Mascot NSW 2020

Donut life at Krispy Kreme

Watching Krispy Kreme donuts being made is quite mesmerising and a definite kid pleaser as they peer through the kitchen window. If you're not careful in this place there's some serious calorie loading to be found. Visiting with the kids we all chose our own donut temptation. Miss 3 year old got the The Simpson ($3.25) because she loves pink. I got the Choc Iced Sprinkles ($3.25) because it's one of my favourite combos and Miss 6 year old chose the Original Glazed ($2.85) which I also love. Everything seems to be provided in takeaway boxes here, even if you're dining in. Some reusable dine in plates would be a more sustainable solution although I noticed the general clean up of tables seemed non-existent which did make the place feel a little dirty. There's free parking outside and a drive thru available. I noticed on the packaging the first glazed doughnut made down under was in 2003.

Negroni time (12 Sept 2018)

Boozy Negroni O Clock

Love my negronis. First time we've bought Rosso Antico Aperitivo and now making negronis at home tastes so much better. I used to use a white vermouth I had but it just didn't taste the same as I had in restaurants and bars. I noticed Rosso Antico on a lot of cocktail menus so thought it was time to get some and only costs about $20. Happy place achieved. The 78 Degree gin was from the Mrs for Father's Day. Lovely gin. I do love my gins as either a gin and tonic, martini or in a negroni. Negroni is so easy to make. Equal 30 ml parts of each spirit with ice. Add a slice of orange/peel if you have some around.

Cuppa Cafe, Waverley (7 Sept 2018)

29 Albion St, Waverley NSW 2024

Art Cafe in Waverley

The new kids at Cuppa Cafe seem to be finding their feet after a couple of weeks of settling in. The decor has changed since my earlier visit for the better and there's more art on the wall which owner @a.azad.7 is hoping to attract other local artist to use to promote their works. Cappuccino ($3.50) on my first visit came with a cute bear coffee art. Was well made with a coffee bean that I often find is a hit and miss but this barista nailed it well. Second visit they've changed the coffee to Toby's Estate Coffee Roasters as a point of difference due to the previous coffee already been used in the area. A different barista this time still doing the bean justice with plenty of flavour hit in the small sized cup and a good amount of froth achieved. Coffee was on the house courtesy of @a.azad.7. Some house baked goods on offer mixed with pain au chocolat and almond croissants from Sonoma. All signs are putting towards a nice getaway space to relax and enjoy the art over a coffee or bite to eat.
