On Wednesday, ‘hot’ was an understatement! Being over 40 degrees walking through the city, the day felt like you were stuck in a furnace on all sides, from the sun, the road and the footpath!
But that didn’t stop us! My most wonderful friend Delia and I had arranged to catch up and she had a particular place in mind, the very healthy Little Bird Cafe.
We trudged through Northbridge, sweating, but chatting and staying positive (because you can’t NOT be positive around Delia!), until we came to the cafe. It’s nothing to look at from the outside. To be honest, you would hardly know it’s there!
But inside, it’s very sweet and most importantly….
It has air-conditioning!
We sat ourselves down on the old leather lounges and got comfy.
And the interior designer in me started eyeing off all the decorative details of the place.
The rug beneath my feet.
The adorable mural on the wall opposite.
And all the other rustic bits and pieces.
But most importantly… we started eyeing off the menu.
Little Bird is very ‘healthy food’ orientated, which suits Delia and I down to the ground. It’s very vegan, vegetarian and gluten free friendly (though watch out for cross-contamination, if you’re that sensitive) and they have a fantastic menu for juices, smoothies and healthy frappes.
Also, don’t forget to check the counter and glass cabinet for bagels and wraps etc., because they’re not on the menu.
Delia was hungry and ordered accordingly. Me on the other hand…I was just dying for an icy cold drink!
I got myself the Caffeine Dream on the Coco’s Frappe’s list and oh my, it was good!
Delia had popped by and got the Cocao Kapow frappe before we met up and she said it was a winner too!
But then the real goods came out.
Blueberry glazed sour cream doughnuts. Almost too pretty to eat, but that didn’t stop her.
And next stop nice and simple eggs on toast.
I was rather disappointed with myself that the heat completely destroyed my appetite (…and maybe the mid-morning sushi munch might not have helped either), but next time I am going to attack the menu with a hungry belly.
Thoroughly caught up with each other’s life news and with contented bellies, we made our way out…across the pretty floor….
Back through the main streets of Northbridge….
To the city centre to do some SHOPPING!
