Restaurants St Kilda, VIC$5 boags beer special on tuesday night we visited, also tuesday night special was all you can eat buffet from 6pm which included rotti bread, pork curry, pasta with chorizo, and many more dishes served in bay marie which was good value. desserts were a bit boring (cheese platter, pannacotta, and 2 others) but there are so mamy cake places nearby it does not matter. iced coffees were a bit weak but nice. main meals dinner $20-$28, also have entres/tapalunch menu and breaky
Bakeries St Kilda, VICso many cakes to choose from, we had a custard fruit flan and the vanilla slice which were both delicous but a bit expensive at $6+. the lemon meringue tarts looked great with lots of piped meringue on top.
have tried their home and contents insurance and car insurance, for a couple of years now. recently had a window repair claim which we had no difficulty with (settled quickly, followed up with me with satisfaction survey and email, claim form done over phone politely, great communication). appreciate how they dont operate under the rating system (which is a such a farce) where you are penalised when you make a claim by an increase in your renewal premium, have never found them difficulty to get hold of on phone (waiting time). the car insurance policy was fine, never had a need to claim though, but the paying for km is a good idea but gets a bit trickey as difficult to estimate how many km you will do in a year and although you can top up you have to make notes on your calender to remind yourself to keep an eye on it as if you go over and need to claim you are not covered (and we did go over and i didn't realise for several weeks) so decided not to renew just from this issue. there insurance rates are very competitive and often a little cheaper than other companies. did not use their landlords insurance only because they dont offer "rent default by tennant" which we required.
had my child's taken at his preschool by them recently. although they was very friendly I was not happy with the service. They does not respond to repeated emails and phone message you leave with them with queires (such as over pricing) and i prefer more natural shots of kids playing rather than posed shots which they tends to take. prices for photos are expensive considering nature of digital photography now where there is no cost for them to develop prints to show parents to choose whether to buy or not (as there was with film). disappointing.
