CNF Cafe, South Yarra

Brunch is probably my favourite meal of the day, mainly because you can order anything you want – sweet, savoury or anything in between! One of the first places we actually tried in South Yarra was CNF Café and we’ve been back a couple of times since. I’ve ordered the same thing every time, despite the variety in the menu, but it has basically everything I want in a brunch dish!

La Capannina, Milsons Point

The family behind La Capannina previously ran a fantastic Italian restaurant in North Sydney before they set up at Milsons Point, round the corner from the train station and with gorgeous views overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge. My family will follow good food anywhere, so once we found out where they had moved to, we were quick to visit and have since returned a number of times. On this particular Saturday evening, I began with the entree special of tuna carpaccio.
