There’s little here that won’t have you rolling your eyes. Buying knives and tomahawks for a 13-year-old. Standing in a tanning booth without eye protection. Asking for your wedding cake to be the size of a car. The list of awful decisions is substantial, but it’s well-worn ground for a strand which has become as insipid as it is mindless. It may not be renowned as a sober commentary on the Traveller community, but if it isn’t even enjoyable, what’s the point?
Flotsam & Jetsam
The name of this Antipodean-style café is certainly curious. Have they filled it by scouring the beach for odds and ends hurled from broken boats and shipwrecked ships? The attractive interior here suggests not - though there are bulkhead wall lights, and one large table could, perhaps, have been made from driftwood. The food is certainly fresh. Expect dishes such as pineapple bircher muesli, smashed avocado and feta with pickled chilli, lime, mint and poached egg on rye sourdough, buttermilk pancakes and an array of cakes and pastries at the counter. There are Crosstown doughnuts, too. Coffee is supplied by Allpress Espresso, tea by T2. These are served alongside freshly squeezed juices, Karma colas and sodas from Luscombe. Please note, Flotsam & Jetsam does not take bookings.
