Pilgrimage to Newtown

MB has a few days in Sydney with a free day today so it's off to Newtown, home of funky shopping and great secondhand bookstores. Before leaving home base in Balgowlah she entered "Newtown" into Google Maps and came up with Black Star Pastry in Australia St, Newtown. As she was feeling patriotic she thought this would be as good a destination as any.
After a bus to the city and train to Newtown she found the cafe it quite easily, virtually across the road from the station, a little behind King St.

Black Star has some mouth watering delights on offer, too early for the Lamb Shank, red wine & vegie pie so MB settled for a strawberry, watermelon and rose gateaux with a flat white. The cake was sublime, coffee was pretty good but a touch too cold. The cafe is tiny, in a converted terrace house, very cute with lots of boy couples lolling around.

Jeez Loiueeze you get around. Intermittent posting for some time now, then you pop up here!

If you'd let me know, I could perhaps have suggested some other secret foodie spots.

BTW, have you been watching QI with Stephen Fry? We love it. Got the three seasons that have been released on DVD and are working our way through. Enjoy Sydney. Temps up tomorrow!

p.s. We'll probably have a new Premier tonight. Incredible!
