Make your own handbag with hidden pocket where you can slip your own set of reusable shopping bags - made from old bed sheets!

“And then Kevin brought the dessert” Last night we had probably the best restaurant meal in Cairns in the last 10 years at C’est Bon. After being welcomed and shown to our table, our Parisien waiter Kevin explained the menu and suggested accompanying drinks in a helpful and subtle way, his service through our meal was second to none. When our Amuse Bouche arrived, the subtle seafood hint was beautiful and a glass of French bubbly with our separate starters of duck and prawn just continued the great impression. The main course of beef cheek was pull apart, cooked to perfection and the sauce with a hint of chocolate, just decadent. I had the duck a l’orange which had been recommended. It was delicious and the dried thin slice of orange was an unexpected treat. At dessert, the soufflé was cooked to perfection and the chocolate sphere something we were only sorry we did not video. When the spectacle of the dessert had fully revealed itself, the only thing more spectacular was the taste. We will definitely be back for the dessert alone. After years of trying to receive a hot cup of tea at the SAME time as the dessert, synchronicity finally happened. I would like to thank the staff of C’est Bon for a truly excellent meal.
