We stayed in the city and unfortunately we didn't make it to The grounds for coffee. We did find a lot of shopping in Paddington and Darlinghurst (in the rain), such lovely little suburbs with great shopping. I was shocked not to see many cafes on the main street. On Crown Street we came across The Goods Cafe, it had fresh juices and yummy looking food. I had a coffee with a Walnut and Date biscuit. Mel had Banana bread and Belinda a little cake. Later that night we went to the Shady Pines bar where we were surrounded by taxidermy animals listening to country music(yes I know not usually my style but this place pulled it off). Such a great vibe in this little bar, well worth the visit. I guess you have to see it to believe it's level of coolness.
The following day (rain again) we ventured out to the city malls, to try and get some cover from the rain and last minute shopping in. Stumbled across some cool street art and the pit street cupcake shop. Oh course we had to try them. Delicious!!
Then it was off to the airport and back home. Next time I think we will make it a summer time trip.
