It’s interesting to watch the transformation of the ole neighbourhood that I grew up in suddenly become so hip and chic over the course of the last couple of years. Suddenly the obscure estate that I grew up on become ‘familiar’ to so many.
The newest kid on the block (in addition to Wimbly Lu, The Fat Cat, The Cajun Kings, La Pizzaiola and well, Baker’s World), Rokeby opened just last weekend and up till tomorrow, is having an opening special of 10% off all items (except alcoholic beverages I think). Still having the occasional teething problems, it is quite the nice spot to chill. And the coffee, oh the coffee, yums.
What I liked was the thoughtful small corner for the children. A couple of small children’s tables laid out with an invitation to play, colour and have fun. My kids would have loved it, but they were at school (hah!). Worth a second visit. And maybe a third. Lunch dates girlfriends?
Oh, and they open early. From 9am right now. Perfect for a quick catch up when kids are at school.
