Be a Tourist at Home Crown Street, Surry Hills

Be a tourist at home and take a slow trawl down Crown Street, Surry Hills. It could pretty well have it all, Ok maybe not the beach or the bush but pretty well everything else.

After a short break in transmission .... Tina izzyhaveyoueaten and I are back sharing what we discover. Little jewels -food, shops and just lovely places to be. We took days working our way down Crown Street, Surry Hills. For the full food story head over to izzyhaveyoueaten.

We started at Organism ...as you do .. close to Oxford Street on the South side of Crown. Great coffee and home made cake, we want to go back for some of their Korean food.
If you are looking for something to wear for the next Mardi Gras try next door. Across the road is a record store and bookshop..worth the browse.

Our next break was at Kawa cafe, a bit of an institution, its been here for 20 years. I decided on health in the colour of year Yellow - The Pantone news release announcing the colors described Illuminating as “a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power - then we saw the colour everywhere.

Dropped in to check out The Dophin interiors and style, then we spent a lot of time wandering the isles of one of the best corner Delis around, Crown Street Grocer, if you can't find what you are looking for head around the corner to the Essential Ingredient. We moved onto Henrietta to eat.

There are a couple of shops we found that I think are worthy of their own posts ... so stayed tuned.

We ended day one at Wilson Coffee, a profit for purpose cafe and soon to be Art Gallery.

Day two we started on the North side of Oxford Street at Fragrance Coffee Lab and tiny hole in the wall spot with lovely staff and good coffee.
The BIG discovery for the day however was across the road was their sister cafe the Organic Raw Ethical..Wilde and Co don't be put off by their description of themselves, it maybe worthy but the food is sensational. We had the .. so light they could have floated away Green Pea Fritters with a beetroot salad and The Coconut Pancake ... a flavour bomb.

Then up the road to Chaco Ramen,
So popular, so be early. Tina had Fat Soy Ramen and I tried Yuzu Scallop ... so good.

We ended with a bit of retail therapy at Footage, just off Crown in Burton Street. The best little shop for presents you will find things here that you will find nowhere else.
