The Boathouse Balmoral

Coffee Type: A very manly large mocha.

Location: 2 The Esplanade Balmoral Beach, NSW 2088.

Atmosphere: Swung past for a takeaway mocha today. If we are talking about location, and lets face it we are, the the boathouse can not be beaten. It sits over the water on Balmoral beach. Now today was just a takeaway which is a really cool little side feature they have set up. Rather than heading in to order your coffee, they have a side bar set up on the beach that you just cruise up to in the sand and order your brew. They always make a great coffee here and the mocha was a little sweet treat for todays outing.

GG Espresso Camperdown

Coffee Type: A soy piccolo.

Location: 10 Mallet St Camperdown.

Atmosphere: I am a big fan of the George Gregan Cafes. They are always funky and trendy. Camperdown GG Espresso is no exception to this. I love this little joint. The coffee is always spectacular.

This adds to the peace and quiet and also give you a discrete people watching perch, if thats your thing.
