Lessons of a Lipstick Queen
More I have to share - next you're in Melbourne and on Bridge Rd, Richmond, you must visit Tweek Cafe (266 Bridge Rd). It's quite easy to find - almost on the corner of Church st. It is the cheapest and best place we went to the whole week. The shop itself is the cutest thing ever, you can sit outside on the pavement, inside with the action, or out the back in the itsy bitsy courtyard. The coffee is sensational, and it was, and will be, exactly the same every time. The menu is the essence of quality and variety, and it manages to be surpising but simple at the same time. We went for breakfast twice. The boys got Big Tweeks, Tweek's version of the traditional big breakfast. It wasn't just traditional, it was the most delicious they'd had. I had the Tuscan; a perfect combination of hot buttered toast, spinach, fried juicy tomatoes, piles of bacon, poached eggs and topped by big slices of fresh avocado. It was the only way to start a fabulous day in my city.
So those are a few things I though you should know.
