Checking out Mrs Sackville @ the Kingston Foreshore

Mrs Sackville recently opened up at the Kingston Foreshore. It’s not along the main strip by the lake, but faces the Bus Depot markets. A lovely framed menu stands outside. Upon entering, the first thing you notice is the mismatched furniture – wooden tables, cute cushions on the seats and benches, then glass tables and […] Read more…

Pintxos/tapas @ The Rum Bar

The Rum Bar opened up last Friday and I only knew about it when I walked past after having some $1 oysters at C Dine Bar. The place was packed out and when I walked inside to look at a menu, I noticed there were complimentary tapas that night – a foodie’s dream! However, the […] Read more…

Coffee @ Remedy by Lonsdale Street Roasters

The latest Lonsdale Street Roasters project, Remedy, opened up at the Kingston Foreshore in late December. Remedy only offers coffee and some pastries – no cooked food. This provides some strong competition, mainly for 38 Espresso, and for the other cafes offering coffee. I headed there on their first day of trade for 2014.  Opposite […] Read more…

38 Espresso @ the Kingston Foreshore

38 Espresso advertises itself as the Kingston Foreshore’s only espresso bar and its first day of trading was today. I rocked up this morning to see all their outdoor tables full of early morning risers. Because it is an espresso bar, it only offers coffee and a few pastries – croissants, muffins and danishes (today […] Read more…
