four ate fiveFriday, June 27, 2014
Brunch has always been a mystical thing to me. Although the idea gets thrown around casually I can never wake up early enough for it, so the novelty is something that I haven't gotten around to experiencing yet... well not in Sydney, that is! Anyway when someone recommended that I try out Four Ate Five (which happens to be right next door to Mad Spuds) I was determined to make the effort for brunch, and it definitely didn't disappoint. Be warned though, my friend and I went fairly early on a Friday morning and it was already packed! Luckily we found seats quickly, although people seem to be in and out of there pretty fast anyway.
They didn't have chai lattes (blasphemy!) so I went for the chai tea brewed with milk and honey instead. Honestly I'd have to say it tastes the same as all the other places I've had chai tea, but I still enjoy it every time! It also came in this cute teapot and strainer set which is quite fun, plus it holds just the right amount for one person.
Check out some of those cool paintings on the wall! Both the kitchen and coffee machines were pretty much out in the open, so I think it made this place feel a bit more fast-paced than other cafes.
Aaand some sights to be seen around Sydney's own Central Park, since my friend had never been and we wanted some grass to sit on. Meanwhile I finally figured out where that infamous gelato place is, but unfortunately we were both too full to try some! I'll definitely be back for it soon though, just watch this space...
