We were looking for a 40th gift for a friend and arrive here and needed to look no further, there was just so much to choose from. We ended up with black stone earrings in silver for $139 from a very helpful staff member.
I had a banana cupcake which tastes very very banana'ery!!! You ordered at the cashier so it can be a little hard to juggle securing a table and ordering when you are alone an it's peak busy time there. Many comfy lounge to sit at.
I LOVE the flavours of the Middle East so I was stoked to find this eatery. There were a number of different salads and pita breads you could chose from and choosing was difficult. I ended up with the Sabbaba pita on wholemeal pita which costs and extra fifty cents. The salads and sauces were just delicious but the meat was a total disappointment. I must have pulled out of my mouth a third of the lamb shish meat I chose. Despite this I would go again just not get lamb shish.
This store has been around for so long and whilst I'm not a dan of the clothing for myself I do come here regularly looking for gifts for my mum. In particular scarves, I just bought a lovely multi tone grey scarf.
We had a delicious brekkie here but it's really rather expensive. Good coffee and probably the yummiest and nicest banana bread I have tried with real banana slices in it, and I love the homewares but the prices might just have me looking elsewhere next time.
We had a lovely three course dinner here. Most surprising were the desserts, so good and such good value at $6 each. One was melted chocolate in a bun, pork bun style. The staff were al so friendly and helpful but probably checked in to see how things were just a little too frequently.
There isn't much to choose in the good window but a long menu with photos makes up for that. I chose a pre made sushi tray which was fresh and chilled to just the right temperature. Friendliest service also.
If you're after a small and light sandwich this is definitely not the place. They are huge hunger satisfying sandwiches. The tuna and salad we had was stacked high with the freshest ingredients. And the favourite suggestion is the Alex fresh juice which was just as good.
This store is an institution in Mona Vale, having been open for at least 30 years. They sell the lovely but pricey ladies clothing, the odd homeware and jewellery. The staff are always so pleasant also and happily entertained my son whilst I shopped.
