Little Bay Beach & Black Betty Espresso Co.

Scorcher today. Got a message from Krysti: “drop everything that you’re doing, let’s go for a swim at Little Bay Beach!”. Nek minnit…

I used to come here a lot as a kid (Dad used to take the whole family and he used to rock fish whilst I played in rock pools all day).

After our dip we did a bit of rock pooling, then we thought we’d get some lunch. Not sure about you guys, but I’m always starving when I come out of the water!

We dropped in to check out Jonno’s new shop “Black Betty”. Krysti so passes as Black Betty, don’t you think?!

I got a mad park, right outside :)

It’s next door to the Subway, and shares the same space, which is a little strange, but Jonno’s done really well with the interior design, really spacious, inviting and comfy.

The menu. I’d pretty much like to order one of everything please!

We went for the poached chicken and slaw over toast. Was so delish, not a bit of it was left on the plate when we were done. The slaw itself has a very subtle Asian flavour to it ,very nice.

We also went for the fancy ham, cheese and tomato sandwich which went next level thanks to a dash of French truffle oil.

And of-course, we couldn’t resist the cronuts!

A guy from Single Origin dropped off some new coffee whilst we were there.

Jonno was pretty excited to give it a go using this Japanese contraption that very much looked like a hardcore coffee bong.

We had it both hot and cold. Subtle, light, SO good cold! Really reminded us of drinking cold coffee out of drink machines in Tokyo.

Long time JDMST member Jonno Sea (one of the OG’s! AKA Rodent on the forums) has opened his 2nd coffee shop, this time around it’s named after his black MX-5 Betty, and the guy is bringing hipster culture to Kingsford/Kensington, which I think is a brilliant idea (there’s plenty of Asian food here already!).

    The photo of your car was making my head explode until I finally figured out it was taken from *inside* the window of the cafe!
