On Tuesday Stew and I actually had a day off together… it’s a miracle! So we decided to make the most out of the day and have an entire ‘date day’ 🙂 Unfortunately the weather was against us, so our original plan of visiting the Blue Mountains got put on hold. However that didn’t stop us having a good day.
We began the day with a breakfast of bacon, brie and cranberry bagels and then headed out for a couple of games of pool, before lunching at Bourke Street Bakery in Surry Hills. We then went to the cinema in Newtown and this cute old fashion cinema before getting a few drinks at a couple of really pretty bars. One was called Corridor where the bar is just that, a very narrow corridor with beautiful candles set into the walls.
We then had more delicious food at a Mexican restaurant that was serving up $3 tacos, how could we resist?! And then headed to this very cool dessert haven called Doughbox Diner! I’ve been wanting to eat here ever since we arrived in Sydney.
We shared an incredible waffle topped with chocolate and vanilla ice-cream, Tim Tam pieces, Oreo chunks and white chocolate drops. With a drizzle of hot chocolate and whipped cream… YUM!
I also couldn’t resist ordering one of their signature thick shakes, we went for French vanilla and it came with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry on top! 🙂
It was all very sweet and sickly so I’m glad we shared but I definitely want to go back and try one of their crepe cones, they look so fun and yummy. The whole diner is decorated like something out of Grease and all of the staff are dressed head to toe in retro pink and black dresses. Just like the lady on the menu. This is a must in Sydney for all you sweet tooth lovers!
