Heaven Woodfired Pizza

Situated on the perimeter of the new Coburg North Village shopping centre (on Gaffney Street at the Bus Stop) is just about the best Pizza restaurant I have found - It must be because we keep going back!


I can't say that I went looking for a Pizza when I was out shopping, but the sight of a coffee machine and Cake cabinet drew me in.

And the coffee?
It is excellent!

The cakes are still available but no longer on display as they have had to redesign the counter area to make way for ....



ICE CREAM!
7 Apples brand to be precise.

This new cabinet is now integrated into the counter and the flavours change regularly.

There are also a few Lactose Free Sorbets for those of us who can't (or shouldn't) indulge.



Oh.. and they make awesome Pizza too!

All Pizzas are made while you wait, no pre-rolled/pre sauced bases here. Very thin crust and baked in a wood fired oven make these the freshest and tastiest pizza we have come across.

The Menu is not overwhelming but if you can't decide there is always the option to "Build your Own" or choose the Weekly creation off the Specials board.

If Pizza is not exactly what you were wanting - come in anyway, have a coffee and maybe a Zaatar or Flatbread and Homemade dips or perhaps indulge in the Salted Caramel Banana Desert Pizza.

They also do Gluten Free.

Tea Connoisseur - Armadale


I have been watching the progress of this small shop over the last year - they have had some issues with their renovation and I was delighted that it was open for business last week.

On entering my reaction was ... It was worth the wait!

I could not resist being drawn to the incredible glassware - this photo is a Cold Drip Coffee System that they are using with Tea.


95 different blends of tea in Stainless Steel 'Milk Churn' style cannisters stand side by side, just waiting to be expertly brewed and served in any of the beautiful China and Glassware that line the shelves.

The staff are passionate about their Tea and are very willing to spend the time educating you and showing off the various blends and brewing paraphernalia.

So what did we choose?

Green Earl Grey Cream for DS#2 who has declared it his "new favourite blend ever".
And I chose the exotically entitled 'Yunnan Golden Monkey Imperial' a beautiful light Black tea.

The best ever warm Friands rounded off the experience beautifully.

And, of course we bought some to enjoy at home as well!
