Up and comers

There are a couple of new-ish cafes located in Reservoir and Heidelberg Heights that I've been meaning to mention on my blog - these up and coming suburbs are slowly gentrifying as artists, professionals and young families move in.

In Reservoir, there's Lady Bower Kitchen at 1A Marchant Avenue (right off Broadway as you head west to High Street) Ph: 9469 5851 from Tuesday to Sunday 8 am - 4 pm.  While in today's Age epicure, the 'nanna-inspired' Jam and Cream cafe run by Vivienne Toomey and her business partner Sue Burgess can be found at Shop 3, 1 Orr Street, Heidelberg Heights Ph: 9457 3356 from Tuesday to Sunday 8.30 am - 4.30 pm.  Think fluffy scones, knitted tea cosies, backyard chickens and a pink caravan to give you an idea of what this cafe is all about.  Its sensibility reminds me a little of Coral Lee cafe in Bright.

I also talked about sneezing yesterday and yes, the annual Hurstbridge Wattle Festival is on this coming Sunday for those of you wanting to brave the crowds (and the wattle!).
