First official day of winter 2016, and it’s everything it promised it to be: cold, cloudy, drizzly 1st of June. I’m stuck at home with flu, feeling sooky and sorry for myself and often drifting off to Codral-land. It makes me think back to when we went to the ‘burbs in summer, when it was warm and balmy, with Mr J eagerly visiting his beloved bike stores, and me? Expect me to hunt the best cafe around town, with alfresco dining earning bonus points.
In comes Wolfe & Co – a lovely, bustling cafe in a quiet corner in the Hills District. Wolfe & Co prides itself in using and sourcing local produce, including some local Hawkesbury suppliers. The coffee is Five Senses, and the sauces, preserves, jams, granola and muesli are all housemade. Yes, there is life beyond the Inner West and Inner city areas of Sydney, people! Yes, this is a pretty good find in suburbia (a pretty popular stop for cyclists too!). Do they make good coffee? Yes. Is the food nice? Oh yes. Is the service good? You bet. Unfortunately, they ran out of their infamous Creme Brulee French Toast when we arrived, however it could only mean one thing: another visit is a must to try them out next time!
