I had a break this week from uni so I had time some spare time to spend with my friends and go out and check out some new cafes. I hung out with my friend Baz on Monday and he suggested Touchwood, he had been there over the weekend and said he wouldn’t mind going back.
It was great because there was not queue,
I think you can wait up to 20 minutes for a table on the weekend not that that would have been a problem for me anyway because I always carry around my book with me and waiting time equals reading time, so I am always happy.
There is so much space in Touchwood, and it’s filled with light which creates a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Baz and I sat up near the counter on the long communal table which was nice, I like sitting in places that give me a good view of everything around me.
Baz ordered the Morning Grain Salad – Quinoa, freekeh, wild rice, rocket, toasted almonds, chai soaked raisins, cumin yoghurt, poached egg $16, and I ordered the Banana and blueberry wholemeal waffles, organic maple syrup, banana ricotta and strawberry dust $16.
Both great choices and very satisfying. I enjoyed the waffles especially because they were wholemeal, so they were lighter and healthier
so no bloating than usual waffles and all the ingredients worked really well together. I had two coffees and enjoyed both.
We also had some interesting conversation about social media; what we think about it, what platforms we like to use, how we use it, how much we should/share, how it makes us feel, the importance of it, etc. We both felt the same way in that we actually do love to use it, that it is fun sharing what we’re up to with our friends and ‘followers’, that it is great being able to connect with so many more people, and that it actually does add value in our lives. I would love to continue a conversation on social media with anyone and would love to know your views.
