I’ve had a very stressful day. It’s been particularly bad, so I feel the need for coffee and cake from Abundance on the Quay. Actually, the day doesn’t need to be bad AT ALL to want coffee and cake from Abundance on the Quay! Abundance on the Quay: Bellerive Tasmania Some people might go running in times of stress.

We pretend we don’t eat very much pizza. It’s true, we don’t order pizza very often. But when we do order pizza, we order from Pizzarazzi, and we get the “dinner for six” deal. Pizza for days! The leftovers freeze well, so we can whip out a sneaky bit of pizza anytime and reheat for a snack. Aren’t we bad? Pizzarazzi: The Real Deal Dinner for six includes three large pizzas and three sides. The customer gets to choose which pizza and which sides. Our favourites include the Pizzarazzi sweet chilli chicken: red onion, mozzarella cheese, chicken breast and red capsicum on...Read More

We’re losing our touch. We forgot to mention one very important highlight in our last article: chocolates from Kettering! Nutpatch Nougat: Chocolates from Kettering When we reported our top three features from a daytrip to Tinderbox via The Channel region, we failed to include Nutpatch Nougat. D’oh! We’ve recorded our love for this Huon Trail business before, but there’s always room for another reference. Some of our very astute Facebook followers rightfully pointed out another important fact too. Owner and master chocolatier Giovanni now sells chocolates from Kettering AND a brand new location. Chocolates: Think Hobart, Tasmania If you’re not...Read More
