Coffee number 1

Sweet Source
288 Rathdowne St, Carlton North
(03) 9348 2998

Café Latte - $3
Flourless Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake - $5.50

With limited funds and an ongoing desire to kick my caffeine addiction, going out for coffee has become an occasional treat, not an everyday fix. Keeping this in mind, we headed down to cuter-than-cute Sweet Source to get a coffee and look at the gorgeous cakes. Whoops. I didn’t mean “look at”, I meant “inhale”.

The foam on my latte had a disappointingly burnt taste, rather like cigarette ash. The rest of the coffee, bizarrely, tasted fine. The flourless chocolate and hazelnut cake was very rich, dense and dark. A bit too much for one person, but lovely to share.

Why kick a caffeine addiction? Just think- at least it's not an addiction to something more... well addicting!
