Hi we live in Toowoomba and have tried the award winning bacon. 

We still prefer the British Sausage Company bacon. 

That's rubbish. Full of water. You have to go to a local butcher for proper bacon. Not mass produced stuff

I like a coffee in Bluewater shopping centre on a Sunday morning but think I preferred it during covid. Everyone followed the arrows and kept 2 meters appart, all the dimwits stayed home. It was lovely.

I like a coffee outdoors at a good cafe or from a good drive thru not in a shopping centre. You can stay away from the dimwits and covid that way. Shopping centres are dreadful places anyway .

a drive through coffee ?  How "strayan".  Anyway, listen to me.  You can't say a coffee is no good because it comes from a shopping centre.  You can say "i've never had a good coffee from a shopping centre" but not the former.  If you are still scared of covid then its best to just stay home.

"Shopping centres are dreadful places anyway"????  what happened to the down to earth northern lass I once knew?

I just realized that a bottle of burgundy was going past it's best.  It was £180 last year but checked and it would now only cost about £85. Anyway my opinion is that even at £85. I can honestly say I've had better wine from m&s for under £20.

I’m sorry you’re feeling triggered by my post…however I must put the record straight. I never said I didn’t like shopping centre coffee. I like all coffee. I never had a good coffee in England though- shopping centre or not. Here I can get a good coffee from most places. Though not all. I have my favourites. I’m not a northerner either. I’m actually from the Midlands. I realise anything north of Watford is northern to southerners. I’m not scared of Covid- you referred to that. 
Yes shopping centres are always dire places filled with an air of capitalist desperation and unbridled consumerism. I don’t like them as a rule. Never have done.

I'd much prefer to support an independent café rather than the chains you tend to get in shopping centres, but for me it's also about sitting in a nice or interesting location. The only time I ever buy coffee out is at the café down by the beach, so I can enjoy it with a nice view. I did do a drive-thru coffee once and it was awful - just wish I'd driven home and made one myself!

I agree completely with your first point. We have an excellent drive thru nearby and often get coffee on the way out to a morning walk (energy!) or hubby picks one up on a Sat morning after Bunnings or other errand and we enjoy on the patio. It’s a good start to the day. I do enjoy a proper coffee and there’s some awesome places/beans used/baristas in Perth. It’s rare to get a bad one. Rest of the week I make do with my Nespresso pods.
