Ola Lola Cafe & Eatery, Alexandria

Tucked away in a more industrial part of Alexandria is the Latin American eatery Ola Lola Cafe. It poses as a half takeaway shop and half cafe, yet still manages to draw in quite a crowd with a mix of locals and Latin American nationals (it’s so cool hearing them speak!). They serve up authentic Colombian coffee beans with their repeat customers leaving their loyalty cards in the store for convenience and their menu boasts influences all across the continent, from Mexico to Argentina.

Although Mamasita’s name is printed on the closed glass door entrance, it is such a narrow entry that it’s easy to walk straight past it. From the street all you see is a quirky sign that says “un taco? un tequila?” and the restaurant itself is up a flight of stairs and is rather roomy inside, split into two parts – a bar area and a dining area with some with window seats for people-watching.

Cafe Viva, Balmain

This vibrant little cafe is located a bit further down Darling Street than the main hub of eateries in Balmain, but retains the buzzing vibe (and crowds) of the suburb. Their specials are chalked up on blackboards hanging on the walls and while some of their lunch menu sounded delicious (duck fat chips?), we had arrived squarely within their breakfast/brunch menu serving time at 11am and so we promptly decided to try some of their Potted and Baked Egg offerings.
