Balmoral was where it was all at today! Every year there is a challenge called the Balmoral Burn…up Awaba st, the toughest 450m uphill race in Australia! This race raises funds for the Humpty Dumpty charity, to enable the hospitals to purchase much needed medical equipment etc!
After joining in the festivities (jumping castles, face painting, gourmet stalls etc) we decided to walk by the water to our fave venue the Boatshed. So much goodness here! True to it’s name! Literally an old Boatshed revamped right on the water! The Boatshed is jam packed with amazing colour and atmosphere! Beautiful florals, enormous fruit bowls stacked to the brim, striped walls, beautiful lighting, colours and most importantly food and coffee!! Occasionally the line inside is quite long to sit so we like to grab a coffee and fruit or avo, tomato and goats cheese on sourdough at the outside stall and sit by the park/ water with the kids.
Many hours spent on the swings and slide and then sandcastles and digging on the beach. With the kids playing and adults enjoying great coffee and produce, this makes for a great Sunday out!
Other top dining choices…
Awaba cafe – all white modern fitout with a great lunch menu, coffee and amazing cheesecake! (Last image).
Bathers pavilion a little further down (no. 4 The Esplanade) on the beach side. A little more formal but right on the water and a great brunch spot. Amazing eggs Benedict and kids menu too.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend x b
