Taste Baguette, Waverley (27 Aug 2018)

5 Albion St, Waverley NSW 2024

New taste reaches Waverley

This cafe might be Taste Baguette's 15th location which has yet to make it on their website location listing. I've been a fan of Taste Baguette ever since they opened many years ago on Foveaux St in Surry Hills and was very happy when they opened in the CBD at
Taste on Sussex Lane around 9 years ago. This store is now dangerously closer than the Woollahra Taste Providore. Freshly baked pastries are a great temptation in the window. The Cherry Danish ($4.80) and Pain aux Raisins 'Escargot' ($4.80) are good as expected. I spy Campos coffee on the machine and a nice quiet seating area out the back. I'm sure Waverley locals will be very happy to have this addition to their cafe options.

The Lookout: Cafe, Elizabeth Bay (22 Aug 2018)

Elizabeth Bay Marina, 1 Ithaca Road, Elizabeth Bay NSW 2011

Coffee with a great water view

This cafe takes full advantage of the marina view and the menu remains surprisingly reasonable. Cappuccino ($3.50) uses Mecca Coffee and is well made with a good hit of flavour in a small size cup. There's a fair amount of seating although I'm sure it'll be well sort after on the weekends. Free street parking exists for the lucky ones and there's a nearby playground in the park for the kids. It's also a dog friendly area.

Gojima, Pyrmont (6 Aug 2018)

The Star, 80 Pyrmont St, Pyrmont NSW 2009

Japanese sushi burger

It's my first time here and had my doubts about this burger concept but Chase Kojima seems to have done a great job making it possible. Burger visit inspired by Nick Effendi burger review who highly rated this burger. Gojima cheeseburger - Angus beef, cheese, tomato, pickles, lettuce & special sauce, wrapped in Japanese sushi rice and nori ($12.90) had a nice juicy pattie, melty cheese and tasty sauce. I didn't think it would hold together well but it managed to stay stable throughout the eat. My only reservation is the smell of the nori seaweed when eating a cheeseburger as my brain is thinking I'm about to eat a sushi roll. It's a pretty drippy eat so just watch out. I like how they give you a wet wipe with the meal which certainly does come in handy. Next visit I'll try their other most popular burger of the Salmon Miso Sushi Burger which I'm suspecting the nori smell won't be as strange for me. Friendly service and a nice clean seating area.
