flat whiteThis Aussie owned outpost is a mecca for anyone in need of a taste of home. As well as a fantastic flat white, the menu features a great selection of down under style fare. Didn’t think we had our own cuisine, but turns out avocado and tomato on toasted ciabatta (at Smooch that’s a Tamarama), is homestyle for us. The food menu’s a little smaller than the one listed on their site, but there’s something for every kind of hungry – and yep, you can even get a latte in a glass or a bowl. I almost let out a happy yelp when the server placed this super smooth, kick in the pants flat white in front of me. And let me tell you, it tasted as good as it looks.
