National Lamington Day
Food & Drink

Head to an original bakery to celebrate National Lamington Day

There’s nothing better than a light-as-a-feather lamington over a cup of tea to curb your sweet tooth. A tricky recipe to get right at home, small batches are best as the inner sponge tends to stale quickly. But when visiting a traditional bakery of yesteryear – where the portions are sizeable and the price merely pocket change – a giant lamington in all of its coconut-sprinkled glory feels perfect and reminiscent of the past. more

The Street Photographer: Lady Marmalade

A quirky corner cafe in Stones Corner, Lady Marmalade is a foodie delight that many may have heard of but not actually seen. Home to award-winning, creative sandwiches and pancake stacks topped with fairy floss, Lady Marmalade deliver unique flavour combinations in a relaxed setting. Vintage knick knacks adorn each available shelf and cranny inside, while a counter of sweet treats tempts dessert to be taken post-sandwich. Nab an outside table with a little dappled sunlight and watch the world speed by or slip into the pages of a good book while your table number Kung-Fu Panda keeps you company until your coffee arrives.

The Street Photographer: The Bowery

A discreet den of cocktail dreams, The Bowery in Fortitude Valley has crooned many a slinky weekend reveller since opening in 2003. Inspired by a New York street infamous for its speakeasies and underground gin joints during Prohibition, The Bowery recreates this smoky, rebellious era through high-quality first-pour spirits and age-old original cocktail recipes. When approaching The Bowery for the first time, instructions from those in the know may include ‘look for the black shop front’ or the faux street sign down the adjoining dumpster lane. Staging live jazz during the week and DJs on the weekend, at The Bowery you can get comfy in a leather-studded booth, browse the extented cocktail list and watch as the suspender-donned bartenders spin you a concoction that will make your Saturday night equal parts sweet and sultry. Check out The Bowery on The Street Photographer. more
