Son of a Baker, Botany (11 Jan 2019)

1545 Botany Road, Botany NSW 2019

Just here for the pastries

They're certainly keeping the cronut alive and well here. Was hoping there'd be dine in for a pastry and coffee fix but it's only takeaway. Located right next to the bus stop though which could be a cheeky seating option. Cronut ($4) was nice the Cappuccino ($3.50) using Zest Specialty Coffee Roasters had a good hit of flavour. $7.50 all up, not the $10 that was accidentally charged when I queried the pricing. I found it a little awkward to look at the pastries with the height of the display but there's plenty of street parking in the area for stopping by. It's just the pastries available here so if you're looking for the dishes you'll need to head to their Sans Souci cafe.

Humm Roasters, North Sydney (3 Feb 2019)

Shop 2B/211-223 Pacific Highway, North Sydney NSW 2060

Ground control to North Sydney

‘Our brand new MODBAR espresso system offers state of the art technology and produces perfectly timed extraction, temperature control and water pressure levels.’

Promising venue for a coffee hit in North Sydney. Cappuccino ($3.70) using the HUMM Milk Blend 34% Colombia, 33% Brazil, 33% Ethiopia has a good hit of flavour and the froth factor is notable. Piccolo ($3.50) is served a bit of the luke warm side but the Hot chocolate ($4) is good. Apple & ginger juice ($7) is nice. Shortstop donuts are on offer but understandably go quickly so get in early to secure your sugar hit. Parking is metered during the weekday shared with clearways in the area but the weekend offers free parking. Service friendly, baristas are passionate and air con will hopefully be sorted in the near future otherwise stick to the outside breeze and watch the traffic go by.

Battered at the Bay, La Perouse (28 Jan 2019)

51 Endeavour Avenue, La Perouse NSW 2036

Chips ahoy in La Perouse

My first time checking out this place which is looking much better than the previous fish and chip shop that used to be here. Calamari and chips ($13) comes with 6 pieces of tender calamari that's prepared right without thankfully any stringy elastic membrane left intact. Good crispy chips. Will definitely need to revisit to try their fish. Parking on the weekends is a big challenge being such a popular area. Service was friendly and under pressure at the time. I thought the order was going to take a while but it came out a lot quicker than expected. Fair amount of seating on the balcony that overlooks towards the beach area. A well located spot for those craving a fish and chips fix.

Bronte Fish & Chips, Bronte (11 Jan 2019)

489 Bronte Rd, Bronte NSW 2024

Thank God It's FryDay

This fish n chip shop is well located for a chip fix. Chips ($8 large) with chicken salt is one of my favourite guilty pleasures after a beach swim. These were pretty good with the right amount of crispy finish to please. Decor of the shop looks quite tired and the service could probably be friendlier and it's cash only. All the usual suspects on the menu and there doesn't seem to be much competition in the area. Across the road is one of my favourite beach pools. Parking in the area is metered except for further up the road.
