  1. Actually, I was not actually 'game' (sic) enough to eat emu/croc/kangaroo but I only went in for a coffee anyway. I have eaten kangaroo and it was nice but I could not help thinking I was eating an Aussie icon! Same with the emu as they both appear on the Aussie coat of arms. I will go back and try something daring however. Redfern is getting cooler and cooler too. Purple Goanna Megan Johnston February 21, 2011 Bush tucker doesn’t often appear on the Sydney cafe scene but at Purple Goanna it dominates the menu. Since Koori woman Suzanne Grech opened the cafe about a year ago, she’s tapped into the wild-food market with dishes such as wild berry pancakes ($10) and the big bush brekky with kangaroo or crocodile, tomato sauce and Tasmanian native pepper ($15). For lunch, we’re keen to try the kangaroo burgers with chips ($12) but on the day of our visit stocks are running low due to the floods so we order a barramundi burger with chips ($12) and crocodile risotto with cream, spinach and garlic ($15). We steal a spot by the huge open window and our Philosophy coffees soon arrive, hot and strong. Next comes lunch: a crusty bread roll with tender fish in a tasty lemon myrtle dressing and a rich and aromatic risotto with big chunks of gamey croc. Regulars arrive and chat to waitresses, before cosying up along the wooden side bench or at airy outdoor tables. We stay for a massive bowl of lilly-pilly ice-cream ($6) topped with cream. It’s a subtle musky-flavoured concoction we resolve to come back for soon
  2. Hi I am only just starting my search into the areas / suburbs around Perth. Can anyone give me sugestions on areas which have a good mix of coffee shops / restaurants / independant shops / possibly a pub or two. A good senior school, or good transport links to one is essential. 30 -45 mins from the city would be fine. 15 mins from a good beach House budget undecided, depends on whether we take a mortgage! Just a few pointers in a general direction whould be helpful at this stage. Thanks in advance.

    high streets and cafe lifestyles

    We are going for a visit in 14 days, Can anyone please tell me which areas have a nice high street atmosphere? We will be settling in the south east as our work is in dandenong. so looking at areas such as berwick, rowville, frankston south and cranbourne. I know mornington is very nice. Is this the best area for this kind of thing? But it is just too expensive for us. ( we want to spend 450,00 max for 3+ beds) we are not fussed about beaches, so happy to go inland. Any ideas? Can anyone give me a good description of berwicks high street, and does cranbourne have a high street/cafe scene? Does Rowville tick any of these boxes? is there somewhere else to consider? appreciate any feedback thanks Jenny
  8. Hi all, We're moving to Melbourne at the end of 2010. I've found a lot of info on the different vibes of various inner-city suburbs but I haven't find much info about block-sizes. We're a young couple and we like living in the inner city but we also have a rambunctious cocker spaniel who will need a yard. We're not too fussed about budget. Can anyone recommend suburbs close to the CBD, with a good selection of cafes, parks, shops, etc., with average block sizes around the 300-500m2 mark? Thanks for your help! Luce
  9. hi all We are moving to Sydney next year and are struggling to find a suburb that is not overly spread out. We would love to find somewhere that has a community feel, a main street, rows of cafes, etc. Somewhere that you can walk around without travelling on highways etc Does this ring a bell to anyone?! ANy info/suggestions would be great thanks Karl
  10. Hi We have a cafe for sale. A few of our regular Brit customers suggested this may be a great place to let Brits know if they were wanting to migrate under a biz visa. Thanks Nicky, Helen and Chrissy. So read on... and let me know if you're interested. SUMMARY web site to visit: At The Moorings Rent: app $1000 per week ex GST Lease: 3x3x3 (5 yrs to go but Landlords normally will extend when new owners take over) Turnover: $550,000 Net: $90,000 - $100,000 Seats: 50 All equipment is owned by us. Fitout is owned by landlord. Our business has not been as badly affected as others for the following reasons: 1) Great Location - easily in the Top 5 on the Sunshine Coast 2) Low competition - only 4 in the whole strip, and ours is the best 3) Established clientele - you can atest to this. But our demographic is middle-aged to senior, financially secure. These people are reasonable recession proof and will pay for the view and service 4) Low Rent Licenses: 1) Liquor License - app $450, 2 day course (renew every 3 years). 2) Food Safety Supervisor - 2 modules, online, $250 Due diligence: Full figures (P+L, BAS and Tax Returns) are available. Also we have Bookings Diaries and ticker tapes from Cash Register from day one. In other words, we can back up all our claims. Asking: $320,000 negotiable depending on terms of contract. The quicker and cleaner, the more negotiable we'll be. 1) I draw $440 as Consulting Fees to work the weekends. I have not included this in the NET PROFIT because it is envisaged that the new owners can either hire a weekend manager and still retain their Net, or work the business entirely themselves and keep it all. 2) Freehold. This is a possibility. Fair value is $600K - $800K. 3) Have spoken to staff who are fully trained and willing to stay. Reason For Sale The reason we are selling is after 4.5 years we want to do other things. We've made good money out of the cafe. My partner Pete has a new Saab out of it and is looking at acreage in the hinterland somewhere to live in semi retirement and I want to move back to the Gold Coast with my family and pursue my other interests.

    Head Chef

    Does anyone need a dynamic Head CHef for their Restaurant/Cafe. Have been royally shafted in New Zealand and would love to come to OZ!:cool:
  12. Hello All I am seeking a partner for a British style of cafe in Melbourne. You may be a chef/cook or simply an investor, although I would prefer somebody to work with me, at least initially. I do have some equipment, stock, suppliers etc, but need a partner to help physically and financialy to move into a venue. I can teach somebody with no experience, but you do need a sense of humour, a vision and a sense of adventure. The work is not easy some of the time, but it's a lot of fun. Most of the custom is from Brit' expat's, so be prepared to give, and take some stick :-) I don't mind more than one partner, but the bottom line is both the work, and returns are split evenly. email me initially at vicz@dodo.com.au Cheers Vic
