Cafes Manly, NSWThis is such a handy cafe in the car park at Harris Farm as you can pretty much always get a car park. The coffee can be sometimes hit or miss pending who is making it. However the staff are friendly and the chicken sandwiches are pricey but delicious.
Home Decor Retailers Freshwater, NSWThis really is as they have described. An Aladin's cave of homewares. I come here regularly for gifts for friends however it's a great place to buy yourself a little treat too, life jewellery or a unique makeup bag. Great jewellery too!!
Seafood Manly, NSWSo fantastic having such a great seafood market on our doorstep in Manly and connected to Harris Farm. The staff are all friendly and helpful with great suggestions of what to try. My favourite is when they cook seafood at the front door, it gives me an opportunity to try new fish and flavours and I've followed their lead many times.
Car Dealers Croydon, NSWAnother epic fail for Sydney taps. I bought a Timberline vanity from them and was told it would come with a plug. After all the issues with delivery we finally opened the vanity months later for installation and found it did NOT come with a plug. After all my issues with them previously I chose not to bother contacting them as I know it would fall on deaf ears.
Restaurants Centennial Park, NSWThe queue in their outdoor cafe was rather large however the wait time to receive your coffee was almost nil. By the time I paid there was only one coffee ahead of me. What an awesome barista!!!!!!!!!! Great location with a children's park handy and doc friendly.
Party & Event Planning Surry Hills, NSWPop up picnic organised a company family fun day we attended and they did a fantastic job. The staff were excellent, all so friendly, the lunch was delicious, divine salads especially, fun activities for kids like a jumping castle and races. Everything was well catered for and planned.
Clothing Retailers Sydney, NSWI bought the best pair of jeans today in their sale for $35 that are just so slimming. They were reduced to $50 but there was even more savings when I made it to the register which was an awesome surprise. I also got a lovely soft fabric and soft blue denim shirt for $80. So stoked with my purchases and cannot wait to wear them.
Clothing Retailers Brookvale, NSWI haven't been here in ages and found the store to be really well organised and easy to find everything. The jeans are so clearly labelled with their style and fit so made choosing easy. There are heaps of change rooms for busy days, combined for both sexes, however a number of them were full of boxes.
Restaurants Manly, NSWIt's been ages since we ate there so headed back. The staff were very accommodating of us turning up without a booking early on a Friday night and with a pram, finding a good table and tucking the pram away. I had the squid and it was just as divinely tender as ever. I had the roasted potatoes on the side and they were delicious also. Tho together as a meal I felt a bit heavy on the oil by the end adn should really have ordered a fresh salad too.
Clothing Retailers Brookvale, NSWI found a fabulous suede vest in this store with tassles that I hope I get wear out of as it is just so fantastic that I couldn't say no to it. They were clear in their 30 days refund policy however.
General Retailers Brookvale, NSWthey had a pop up sale in Brookvale on the weekend and the clothes were positively awful! However that I guess is only my opinion as we all have different tastes in life. They did however have an Arsenal football kits for kids so that will keep the husband happy for $15.
Internet Services Perth, WAWe have been using Iinet for years now and never had a problem with connectivity, however we are releasing our plan. When I called to cancel they were very informative and offered to refund some money if we didn't see the month out.
Newsagents Manly, NSWLooks like they are starting to get ready for Xmas, as I bought a fantastic Scholastics book about the Day Before Xmas in Australia, which will be an excellent gift to send overseas. They also have a train set to occupy little ones in the shop.
Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Manly, NSWWe bought ice cream for all of the kids, at $3.70 the price was good, with choc dipped cones and extra toppings if they liked, however the scoop was a little on the small side. On a busy day it is hard to chose a flavour as there is three cabinets and its hard to see, a board with flavours might assist the ease in choosing.
