Cafe Uncoverings | Cafe Claire Annandale

When I think of today’s café discovery, three little words come to mind: Pretty In Pink. No, not the iconic film of the 1980’s staring Molly Ringwald but rather the wholemeal rosewater pink pancakes I gorged myself on this morning. For the record both the film and the pancakes get a thumbs up from little old me.

When it comes to social media, particularly Instagram, I think it is a fair assessment to state we all have a little stalker in us.
