coffee in a french press isn’t supposed to have a crema, but I just walked a few blocks looking for open cafes without any luck so…

looking for shelter from the sun I stumble across a brand new beer house with an impressively broad selection (@ Beer DeLuxe Darling Harbour)

PCP Crush; basically a virgin piña colada, tasty (@ The Paramount Coffee Project)

picked these up to rewatch on the home big screen before I see MOCKINGJAY again on the big big screen

cute setup, great drinks (@archierosesyd & @younghenrys!), and art; Gin Garden at @mca_australia all summer long (@ Museum of Contemporary Art Australia)

so I just got a stupidly large 4K TV, and I’m using it to display album art while listening to Apple Music

hot day calls for gin, and waterfront, and @ginandit just popped up on @thestreetsofbarangaroo — cute spot, massive gin selection, lots and lots of suits

trekked to the other side of the lake for more from @ona.specialtycoffee at The Cupping Room; killer coffee and a delicious third breakfast (“huevos divorciados”, presumably named for their irreconcilable differences; one egg with greens and pesto, the other a pile of red peppers) (@ The Cupping Room)

the good folks at @ona.specialtycoffee do excellent coffee, and they made this beautiful bircher oats and chia dairy-free for me (@ ONA on the lawns)

Canberra is weird; this rando English-style pub claims to be the city’s best craft beer venue, and given the trendier places I tried were hopeless I suspect this is true (it is very good!) (@ The Durham)

recovering from my meat hangover with @single_o coffee and this stunning Very Green Salad from @elkespresso — been a very short stop but very impressed Gold Coast (@ Elk espresso)

assorted sweetness in a sublime dark chocolate shell (@ Room 81 - Sofitel Broadbeach)

meat! doing a nine-course degustation at Room 81, ’cause I heard good things and they’re in my hotel; all of it stunning: I've lost the taste for pork but loved the kangaroo “prosciutto” and the lamb “bacon” (@ Room 81 - Sofitel Broadbeach)

massive walk along the beach warrants a massive brunch; awesome vegan-friendly food and juices at @bsktcafe (@ BSKT Café)

Gold Coast is winning; early starts, beautiful food, excellent coffee at @elkespresso (@ Elk espresso)

off for the weekend; the business lounge is so much nicer than the regular (@ Qantas Domestic Business Lounge - Sydney T3)

the Old Clare, nothing like the old Clare; a trendy drinks list, a confused olde-timey feel, and a fancy boutique hotel… kinda right up my alley, but the ghosts of the Clare are saddened (@ The Old Clare Hotel)
