Happy Monday.

I’ve had a lovely day today, out shopping for tiles and toilets for the upstairs bathroom with my mum.

But before we did this we went out for coffee and cake at The Cottage Garden Nursery, Stanley Street, East Brisbane.  I really wanted to share this photo of the cheesecake that my mum was getting stuck into before it was all gone.

The cake portions at this cafe are HUGE!!

The flavour of the cheesecake was ‘turkish delight and white chocolate’. Ok.. maybe a cheesecake with turkish delight doesn’t tickles your fancy but for those who do…. check out the chunks of it inside.  It was amazing!!!! The icing on the cake (pardon the pun) was a delicate sprinkling of rose petals on the top. Yummo!!!

Sadly because chocolate, dark,milk and white gives me hideous migraines I only sampled a few spoonfuls (plus the leftovers  – fingers crossed x) and ordered this ‘orange and almond cake’ with orange syrup. It was delicious too.  Did I mention that the freshly whipped cream had real vanilla stirred through it?  If you haven’t already worked it out, I have a serious sweet tooth!!!!!!

    • The teaspoons were really sweet too. All different souvenir spoons. Actually the whole setup of this place is interesting. It’s on a busy road in East Brisbane and the cafe is in a kind of closed off extension of the main building. You sit amongst plants and collectables for sale. They also have quite a few resident lizards too. A lady opposite us probably didn’t realise she had one under her chair, all you could see was its tail poking out.
