Great country road with friendly staff and lots of stock. The layout is clean and open so you can for a pram through the aisles and comfortably shop. The staff are friendly too. The store is a little hard to find as it is 'outside' the main building on the left the opposite direction from the restaurants.
The quality of country road clothes are good, but I prefer buying their clothes when they are on sale.
A newly renovated store with lots of casual wear. As I walked past the entrance I saw "50% off marked prices" and "75% off marked prices". My heart leaped at the possibility of finding some nice bargains... Unfortunately I didn't find anything nice, my friend found a pair of track suit pants that looked to be of good quality. They were $89! Even after 50% off we thought that was a but much.
Most people will agree that Sheridan is the brand in linen. Bedding and towels are their specialty and this store is an outlet where you can often find sets at half price. If you are not fussed with designs you can find king sheet sets for $150, quilt covers for $105 and pillow cases for $20. There are not many staff but the store wasn't that busy when I was there on a Saturday.
This store is a mishmash of clothes from different seasons. With the sales just ending in store, this outlet shop was full to overflowing with stock just sent in. Lots of clothes but you need to rummage a bit to find sizes.
Shoes are on the left as you walk in, directly on the right lies kids and men's, and the second row is all women's clothes.
Always check what you are purchasing though because some of the seconds sometimes get mixed up.
If you love bargains and beautiful dresses this is a treasure trove for formalwear! I've been to a few of their other stores but this one seems to have more stock. The clothes are arranged by size so it is easy to browse through and find something. They usually have only 1 of each dress so it is a bit of luck finding something you like, and in your size- but when you do... It's fun! Staff are friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable with formal dresses ranging from $99 to $300.
Amazing place for breakfast and it seems many others agree... Vintage and rustic tea cup adorned the shelves, and ole stools and chair create a homely feel to this corner-cafe. The line is a little long so be prepared to wait around 20 minutes for a table. Belle who greeted us took our names down and ensured we were comfortable. We ordered the big breakfast and it certainly didn't disappoint. A cast iron pan filled with warm-belly ingredients such a pork and fennel sausage, beans, mushrooms, baked eggs... Served with a slice of delicious sourdough and some heavenly oil-parsley lemony side. Delicious! The service is friendly and even though they are very busy they are still attentive. Will definitely recommend this place!
The local shopping mall of neutral bay/ mosman. The bus stop is right outside so it is very convenient. There are pretty much just basic shops, an optometrist and medical centre outside the main area. Good for a quick grocery shop.
Japanese tapas- great idea! The food is delicious and the menu is varied enough to visit a few times. They have a good assortment of beer and the seafood is fresh and presented nicely. The $18 lunch special let's you select 3 tapas dishes (restricted menu items) and you get pumpkin soup and bread.
Nice leisurely lunch but the food take a fair bit of time to come out.
I love coming here on a cold winter's night. Hot flaming BBQ and hot pots full of spicy soup and seafood. The service is quick and anytime you need something you can just press the doorbell on your table. The food is delicious and the ambience is family friendly and casual.
After falling in love with the balmoral boatshed, only to have limited seating availability issues rip away one of my favourite spots in Sydney- I decided to visit the original. Situation in the heart of Summer bay, I mean, Palm Beach, this trendy, nautical themed cafe is identical to the vibe of the balmoral one, except there are lots more places to sit here. If you aren't familiar with the 'process', you come in, find a table, anywhere there is a seat really, then you line up to order. The line is long so I suggest you have someone queue up, while the others stare at their phones, looking at a photograph of the menu at the table. The food is simple, fresh ingredients presented nicely. The staff are friendly and given this place is packed, they do a great job serving and cleaning up promptly. If it gets windy and cold, they provide ikea felt-like blankets.
The only downside? The bathrooms... But I don't want to talk about the details, but the state it was in was not ideal.
Overall, I love this place, couple it with a walk along the beach and a little hike to the lighthouse and you have a perfect Sydney stay-cation.
Been coming here for years and it is a family favourite. The prices have increased but their standard is still good even after decades of serving Malaysian-Chinese cuisine in the hills area. As you can tell from the photos the chicken rice here is very popular. Sweet and succulent chicken with all the necessary accomplishments such as ginger, chilli sauce, shallots and black sauce. Their what-tun hor is great too and the servings are large.
I have been coming to Kintaro for a number of years, but it had been a while since my previous visit. 'Country style Japanese bistro' is the way Kintaro describes itself. With a homely feel, the dishes are delicious and resemble traditional comfort food. Fried Chicken here is very popular and the sashimi is very fresh. The staff are attentive and the prices are reasonable given the portion sizes are generous.
Great place and I can't believe I hadn't been here in so long.
Mecca Cosmetica is probably the closet store we have to 'sephora' with multiple brands and skin products. The staff are super friendly and let you try different products, giving you plenty of information about skincare and what beauty products suit different skin types.
The Body Shop stocks their own cruelty free products that aren't tested on animals and have earth conscious packing. I especially like their vitamin serums and body balms. The prices are a little pricey but the prices are pretty consistent around the world.
Located right near the entrance of the Westfield complex this General Pants is large store with the latest street wear. Stocking brands such as All about Eve, Nudie Jeans and Havianas, its a great store to grab some on trend high street clothes and accessories. The staff are really young and friendly, there is definitely a fun vibe!
Located in the back of the Paramount Coffee Project cafe, there is a fun hipster themed bike shop selling Tokyo Bikes. The space is clean and bright and there are lots of beautiful retro bicycles to look through. They also sell cool accessories, such as see-through bike bells, wooden finished helmets and custom bags.
Great place to wander into when you are waiting for a table at the cafe.
Still one of my favourite places to eat with friends and family. It may be located in humble surroundings, but the food is delicious. They have specials and large portions in this New Shanghai compared to it's sister store in the Chatswood Chase food court, plus there are more seats. The service is very quick and they are happy to provide chilli paste and tea.
