    A Day with the Girls
Sunday was a sunny autumn day, perfect for a very late breakfast with my girlfriends. With a headache and a big appetite we headed into Civic to Cafe Essen. After a few hours of walking around Glebe park we headed back to Essen for some delicious cake. Essen holds a lot of great memories for me, during high school and college it was a typical hang out with friends. Years later I'm still drawn into its warm bohemian atmosphere and comforting food. 

                                      French toast with honey instead of maple syrup and bacon

                                    Hazelnut hot chocolate with whipped cream and caramel sauce

                                                  Poached eggs with salt and cracked pepper


                                                     Renee's chocolate mud cake                                                                   

                                                       Jess's lemon marange pie
                                                           My Mars bar cheesecake
Love Jem

They look nice, but I always feel ripped off both for the portion size and the price... have you ever made cheese cake before?
