incy wincy and behind the trees, emerald

It's incy wincy in size but not in heart or purpose! The dual purpose shop and cafe is Emerald's go-to for a quick takeaway, a bunch of flowers and a gift for a special lady or kiddo.

The cafe is a recent addition as is your hole in the wall set up, ideal for a quick takeaway as you cruise up with the pram. There is a seasonal daily menu where you are set to find sweet bakery treats, salad bowls and toast-ables too so you can grab and go OR you can sit under the two umbrellas for a quick breather before you are on your way again. There is plenty of heart in the cafe too with re-usable mugs (for when you ultimately forget your reuseable cup ... again!) and coffee grounds if you want to add to your garden. 

The retail half of this gorgeous set up is just as cool, stocking clothing, flowers, beautiful smelly things and a wall full of baby-slash-kids gifts. Many products are from the locals too, including their very own Behind The Trees wooden camera. Guess what this photographer's children are getting at their next birthday. 

Mamma's special mention: The cafe is part of the same people that have brought us Bam Bam Italian and  The General Food Store. Safe to say, they love bringing us the goods!
