Giant Steps

I’ve heard all about it and drove past it many times when I head pass Healesville. When I did want to go there, they were closed for renovation. Now they have re-opened! Beautiful interiors with vertical wooden designs for dining separation. I’ve never been inside before it was renovated, so I had no idea how…

Tall Timber

To be honest, what attracted us to visit Tall Timber was the Entertainment Voucher of 25% off… (awesome deal!) It was a double date to set the scene and ended being a pretty good experience. Parking went alright. For first timers, be aware that parking is limited and one side of the street is limited to permits…

The Kettle Black

It was both our first experience at Huff Bagelry. The area is tidy and cosy with cushions on the seats against the wall….

Three Bags Full Cafe

A cafe hidden in the corner streets of Nicholson and Mollison in Abbotsford. The exterior appears to be a historic like building – a museum possibly? I wouldn’t have guessed it was a Cafe. Parking was convenient on a 2pm Saturday afternoon, which is pleasing. Friends arrived at 1.45 trying to get in early for…
