Last week, I made my first trip to Gum Tree. How it took me so long to get there, I cannot explain, but thanks to my friend Jessica, we enjoyed a lovely café lunch and a little bit of shopping, too. It's a toss up, though, because I don't know what I love more: the food or the goods. It really is a delicious experience, in every way.
And then just a few steps inside the shop, you will stumble into the Aussie-inspired café - where, you'll want to buy everything. To eat.
Jessica started with a latte, and I with the asparagus and leek soup. And I scraped up every bit of my roasted beet and goat cheese salad. They top theirs with macadamia nuts. Something I will most certainly try next time I make my version.
I came home with a souvenir; a gift for a special sister-in-law, which was doubly worth it when I had it gift-wrapped in a simple kraft paper box. My kind of store.
Have you been there? Or checked it out online? For your next girls lunch, try it. You will find yourself wanting to go back, just like me.
