Breakfast Thieves / Babka

We seem to be getting into a comfortable groove for our brunch ventures – source a good place out during the week, round up the usual brunch partners, get to the cafe by 11ish, get caffeinated and fed, look for something sweet after, and then head off for our church youth group.

That Night at Collingwood

It was 1 of the last nights for a brother in Melbourne so a farewell dinner was in order.
