Am surprised that winter can be so much fun - who knew that loosing feeling in your toes could be an advantage ...

Most satisfying, most effective, most enlightening. Love the forshadowing with the sonic screwdriver ... #savetheday

I've been converted to this mindblowingly good windows application.

I would support dropping any media personality with attitudes like this.

Inverloch - small children, wintery rain, a dog left at home, driving past midnight with an old friend talking through the years and miles.  A lovely space to occupy.

New i think and really nice, fresh, clean and welcoming. I think its my new favourite. Not as delightfully cramped n quirky as Forth Brother just down hill, or relentlessly New Age as QI next-door (ish), but still boyantly contemporary in its presentation. I can see many Mothers meeting here after dropping their kids off at School. My coffee was really satisfactory (although I am not that much of a coffee elitist) so I'm not going to talk the grind or today off the coffee to you. Great beverage temperature and a classically thick porcelain cup to drink from, am very happy here.

For a simple venue, among many restaurants, this one surprised and warmed the stomach. There are a lot of Indian places that serve a range of foods, and their menu selection all falls into a generic scattergun approach. This restaurant manages to do the south/western Indian foods. The Tamarind based dish Goan style (not shown on the menu online) Prawn masala dish we had was fabulous, and far more satisfying than many others we had tried around the place. The breads were adequate, and the Chicken Sagwala was rich, tasty, creamy and very filled with Spinach. Very satisfying & Very recommended.

5 stars is rare for me. Best experience in 5 days around Sydney's restaurants and cafe's in Glebe Point Road. The gritty hard used venue has a polish of frequent use, the kitchen pumps out very solid flavoursome dishes, and it's flexibility in meeting obscure requests (if Sourdough and Avocado and tomato can be considered obscure) all helped to give it a lot of points. The coffee was very satisfying, the wifi cafe space was very accommodating, nice dark nooks for reading with a Dostoevsky and light balconies for people watching - a superb place to while away an afternoon. Recommended.

It's a twee place, going the rustic rural look with loads of francophile elements scattered around. The furniture is made of worked iron and wood like picket fences turned table/chairs and are a little wobbly, but that's part of the charm. The coffee was eminently satisfying, and I found the ambiance to be very enjoyable. A nice place to while away 30 min reading or conversing with a friend. Recommended.

It's a perfectly serviceable old school place to go for a meal that's served in a big old servery style. The new gaming machines make their noises in the background, the menu slanted towards the surrounding retired austerity years influence residents has offal and other ubiquitous items on it as well as the standard classics like sticky date pudding, fish and chips, steak and a variety of sauces., etc., I don't particularly like going there as it's a servery type place, and I prefer a restaurant type experience, but for the price (and the 2 serves for the price of one with the right shopper-docket) makes the London a very cheap and plentifully fed night out. I don't like it, but I recommend it for what it is.

A delightful bookshop filled with old secondhand books of the last 20 years, a good range of books too, some nice nutty philosophy, some self help with a good range of stock, collections of SFF in good quantities as well as some intricate classics also in a good condition. Well worth rambling through.

An economical hotel with remnants of a more wealthy time in the 1980's. I've not seen a coke bottle opener in a hotel for decades, nor a flat head razor disposal widget attached to a golden box holding toilet paper and tissues. A solar heated pool was a visual highlight, although neither of us were tempted to swim there. The plumbing was 'innovative' and while water was plentiful and warm, there was some hammering in the plumbing and taps that dripped. The balcony had a good outlook to the cityscape, and the price was somewhat economical. Still, 3 beds, a fridge, a new iron and a chewed up ironing board on fresh-ish carpet meant its a reasonable 3 star venue. The best thing about the venue was the staff who were helpful and supportive of us getting a good Sydney experience.
