|fire making for the welcoming ceremony-did they have secret hidden matches?:)|
|bush-stone curlew just outside the Art Gallery-you would never guess how long their legs are from this photo!|
But before we headed to the Gallery, our rumbling tummies cried out "lunch"! I wanted somewhere quiet (well, as quiet as you can find on the Coast), so we scouted around and found Tedder Avenue, a rather swanky and rather quiet tree-lined street hidden away from the hustle and bustle, though the high-rises were in touching distance. We did a quick eeny, meeny, miny moe and picked Hard Coffee Cafe.
|these are the type of cars you find in trendy Tedder Ave.|
|and what do you see in real estate agents' windows? luxury boats!|
We wandered down the street till we came across Hard Coffee, next to a boutique that had incredibly expensive hats, shoes etc. I was pining after the Phryne Fisher-type hat!
|love that hat! see the high rises reflected in the glass?|
It was actually a bit nippy sitting in the shade so I opted for a hot mocha while Mr P. had his usual strawberry milkshake. My drink was delicious! So warming and chocolatey while still being coffee.
|hot mocha $4.30|
|Mr P's milkshake already half gone:) $5.50|
I am a sucker for a club sandwich so I went for that with grilled chicken breast. It looked really cute, and was a hearty sandwich with lots of avocado, bacon and lettuce. Oh, and tomato but I usually hand that over to Mr P. as I don't like tomato all that much. (It's a family thing; my sister doesn't like it either).
|really fresh and tasty $15.40|
|Mr P. went with the daily burger special $12.50|
|great value daily specials|
|the lovely ladies of Hard Coffee|
Hard Coffee is open daily from 6am to 4pm. It has daily specials, plus gluten-free options. Usual suspects are smoothies, milkshakes, deluxe sandwiches, salads and juices. On the Pickings scale, I give it 3.8 out of 5.
