I love the village life going on in Summer Hill, particularly Smith Street, where all the action is! Once or twice a week I find myself grabbing a coffee at The Drug Store (local fave + great coffee) and heading across the road to My Messy Room for the best in kids clothes, accessories, prints and room decor! There is a little play pen here for the little ones whilst you have a shop and chat to the lovely owner Stav. We usually then head to the park just behind the village grocer with a great play area.
Here are a few more faves in The Hill!
Envy is a good one for lunch…yummy food and great outdoor courtyard!
Summer Hill Sweets! A lovely vintage lolly shop stacked with old school baked goods, think shortbreads, fudge, rock candy and lots of yummy treats!
Monkey Puzzle toy shop – amazing variety of all things Toys! vintage, new, wooden, soft, create, play and everything in between.
Another one for the kids, especially parties is Colour me mine – a paint it yourself ceramic studio just opposite Summer Hill station.
Heritage coffee brewers – only a few months old and again across from the station…serious coffee, amazing toast toppings and a clean modern fitout.
One penny red – I have not tried this one yet but is next on my list! I have heard great things though! Using fresh seasonal produce and the choice of relaxed upstairs dining or a bit more fine dining downstairs. I hear the cocktails are pretty awesome too!!! Let me know if you have dined here.
So I may have missed some things as I am still a bit of a freshy in the area so please let me know your faves x b
P.s thanks Stav and Renata for your tips x
