Valentine's Day

I don't usually care much for Valentine's Day, but falling on Saturday this year provided the opportunity for me and Alec to spend some quality time together.

We started in Bondi, hoping to go to the bagel store Glick's. However, Glick's is closed during the day on Saturdays, so we wandered up the road to this quirky cafe instead for a huge brekkie.

Three Steps Cafe, Bondi. Home of the all-day breakfast as well as a host of other treats.

Extensive menu, including about 20 types of breakfasts.

Very quirky interior. Loved the Greek people serving us - they were so friendly and fast!

No menus at the table - instead the menu was printed on huge posters on the walls.


My vegetarian breakfast - including hot chocolate - was a bargain at $9.90.

Alec manfully tackles his giant breakfast.

This was all I could eat!

We then drove down to Bondi Beach even though it was cold and wet. Turned out to be a great idea, as the weather kept all the tourists away - score! I've never seen the beach so empty.


Unrecognisable without the hoards of tourists.


Stormy weather made for a moodier beach scene.


Since outdoors was not looking positive for the day, we set off for the Museum of Sydney to see an exhibition called Tails of the City - the story of pets in Sydney. I've never been to the museum before - I didn't even know where it was! It's a nice little museum on the site of the first Australian parliament house.

A trip to that part of town isn't complete without stopping at the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place. I always get the same thing - the chocolate milkshake - so opted for the ice chocolate instead ($7). It was exactly the same as the milkshake though, which would have disappointing if I didn't love the shake so much :)

Yuuuuum!

Alec and his ice coffee. Sluuuurp!

We shared the Passion dessert - it was fruity and perfect! ($12)

Alec pulling faces. He enjoyed himself, I swear!

Booty from the cafe - the loose Lindt balls were free because we spent over $30. Score!! We selected flavours we hadn't tried before like raspberry, peanut butter and cookies and cream.
