i'm excited to show you my new favourite cafe.
surprisingly it's only a couple of kilometres from the heart of sydney in potts point.
designed by sibella court who spent several years in new york. the inspiration - the hampton's, cape cod, nantucket & her trips to montauk roadside clam shacks that flip up their awnings & shutters in summer.
she scoured australia for the old fishing nets, glass bottles, old canvas sails, rods, lines & lures that line the rustic walls of the bar. japanese fishing floats and lobster pots become lights. a collection of shells from the fifties cover the shelves.
enjoying a weekday off with my daughter & a lovely lunch. the food was great, everything was delicious and so fresh. oops..i forgot to take a photo.
it's run by renowned chef jeremy strode, who uses local, sustainable and organic produce.
the fantastic bathrooms with clever port hole mirrors... wondering how i can make one.
love the enamel wear jugs & rope door handles. our meals were served on vintage enamel plates.
the amateur fishing club bar where everyone is welcome.
the walls are lined with old floorboard that make it the feel like you're in an old boat shed.
