Winter is the perfect weather to fit in some lovely bush walks; the cooler climate means minimal snakes and cold blooded creatures on the trails, plus generally less rain. One of my favourite easy walks is definitely the Manly to Spit bridge walk.
On one particular sunny morning after doing this walk, S & I take the opportunity to also do some suburban walking. We came off the bridge and then through Mosman and down to Neutral Bay wharf, where we decide to have lunch at a cute little cafe with a waterview, Thelma and Louise.
Thelma & Louise prides itself in using local and organic produce and it seems to be a popular spot; it's packed on a Sunday afternoon. Luckily, we manage to grab a table outside, right by the harbour.
The chai is freshly brewed with loose leaf tea, and is a comforting, milky drink on a cold Winter day.
The antipasto plate for one is a very generous serving for one. The plate comes with salad, asparagus, marinated eggplant, labne, pickles, sun-dried tomatoes, and smoked salmon and a huge piece of bread. The antipasto is pretty standard fare and nothing stands out, though the produce is lovely and fresh.
We particularly enjoyed the falafel wrap; crisp balls of warm falafel are always a favourite!
We eye huge bowls of the pumpkin soup go past and suddenly have dish envy. The sweets at the front of the cafe also look very tempting, but unfortunately we are too full, so it will have to be next time! Thelma & Louise is a nice little neighbourhood gem; the menu is the standard cafe variety (nothing that fancy) but it's a stunning location by the water to catch a lazy weekend coffee.
