Frappe Republic

After a successful morning shopping with DD and her 3 Bridesmaids, I was rather in need of finding a Coffee Shop to celebrate the purchase of DD's Wedding Dress.

The Staff at Frappe Republic in Mt Alexander Rd welcomed us with friendly enthusiasm and made sure we were comfortable.

DD was more than happy with her Iced Coffee and mine was just what I needed.  But I must admit that I allowed the occasion to dictate what cake we would have. - But OH WHICH cake - that was the question!

We really couldn't choose - so had a slice of TWO - but it was to share between the FIVE of us!

We were informed that towards the end of the year they will be undergoing renovations to turn this lovely CafĂ© into a Restaurant.

Will we return?  Sure! - we need to collect the Gown - and that day I'll need TWO coffees, and maybe another slice of cake or perhaps if we got there early enough... I could check out their Breakfast Menu!

Jelosia - Fairfield

2017 UPDATE:
Jelosia is no longer trading as a cafe - However, there are several very delightful cafe's in the immediate area.


Tucked away in a side street off busy Station Street Fairfield is a gem of a coffee shop that I walked into today.

Indulgence Sweets and Deserts opposite Fairfield Railway Station, is a Cake Bakery that has opened a Retail outlet with Coffee and Cake and .... lots of other tempting treats.

The Lactose Intolerant One was more than impressed with his Bonsoy Latte and Flour-less Orange Cake and I indulged in the Coffee & Cake deal of the day with a Night & Day cake (just $5.50).
My coffee was stronger than I usually enjoy, but cut through the sweetness of the generously sized white chocolate mousse cake.

The staff were delightful and I left wondering what excuse I needed to make in order to return and  try their breakfast menu.
