Sunday in the City



Carly arrived back from her overseas adventure last week, so we decided to meet up yesterday for lunch and a long catch up session!

 After getting lost in the 'burbs (it's a long story), we finally found our destination - Jackson Cafe and Gallery in Rathdowne St.



Have you ever tried to take a photo of a lit chandelier with an iPhone? The chandelier is beautiful... my photo, not so much.

The lovely accessories and homewares are by Red Phoenix Emporium.


Lunch was absolutely delicious...


.... and we shared this very yummy chocolate brownie for dessert

 

 Upstairs there's an beautiful three room gallery space



It's definitely a lovely spot to visit!

I tried to take a photo of a magnificent chandelier in the pump room restaurant in Bath Uk, its not great either, its hard to do them justice on a ph camera!

That lunch looks delicious. Do you know what spice is on the egg? And what is the green stuff? I'm rather inspired to recreate that.

That's bocconcini, dukha and basil.
It was lovely to meet you Camille and thanks for joining us in the very early days of Jackson Cafe Gallery.
