An aesthetically pleasing cafe that caters to all dietary requirements, from vegetarian to vegan to gluten-free, Comes and Goes is undeniably a must-see for locals and tourists alike.

Peanut butter lovers (aka, all of us) rejoice, because hidden in a little side street is Fix and Fogg, a shop where you can grab a couple of slices of peanut butter on toast, plated in a totally Instagram worthy way, of course. Everyone needs to add trying the peanut butter and jam toast to their bucket list, trust me when I say they’ve truly mastered the PB to J ratio. While you’re there be sure to pick up a jar of the creme de la creme of peanut butter, available in a range of mouthwatering flavours.
If you're anything like us, a raging craving for something sweet can hit at anytime of the day. Luckily, The Little Waffle Shop has us covered. With its irresistable menu sporting dishes such as rocky road, snickers and lemon meringue waffles, the problem is going to be controlling how many times we visit this little sweet standout. Our favourite menu addition has to be the popcorn and peanut brittle waffle, complete with chocolate sauce, cola flavoured cream and ice cream (which is perfect for the young and young at heart).
