Kenilworth Cheese, Wine and Food Festival

Its coming to my favorite time of year….Easter. This is the one time of year you can pig out on chocolate and not feel guilt…that is till you step on the scales!

If you fancy something other than chocolate, the best place to head to is Kenilworth on Saturday April 23rd for their annual cheese, wine and food festival. This is not to be missed.

There is an action packed day for the whole family, such as Cheester Egg Hunt, Cheese Rolling Contest, Bushfire Cooking, Cheese Making, Line Dancing OR just wonder around the numerous stalls and taste test the local produce.

Sounds like my perfect day :-).

Kirk’s English Patisserie – Only a short drive from the Seaview

We try to get out for a coffee as often as possible so we can enjoy this beautiful coast. We have recently stumbled  across Kirk’s English Patisserie only a short drive from the Seaview.

Being Pom’s ourselves it was great to find somewhere that serves excellent coffee and the best Eccles cakes I have had in Australia. Next on the list to try is the pork sausage rolls, bakewell tart, pork pie and ploughman’s….The list goes on.

We normally sit in the back courtyard admiring the beautiful yachts at their moorings.

Seaview Resort Testimonial

I have been staying at the Seaview Resort Apartments for a few weeks each year for the last twenty years. I appreciate the spaciousness and light in the apartment, the way the maintenance and high standard of cleanness is upheld, and the feeling of security I have while living here.
The fabulous view from the balcony and the rooms, and the easiness of access to the beach and Mooloolaba shops and cafes all add to the ambience of Seaview Resort and the enjoyment of being here. I always leave Seaview Resort reluctantly and look forward eagerly to my return

Great Restaurant in Mooloolaba – Hot Pipis

Birthday at Hot Pipis - Mooloolaba

Well another year has flown by and it was time to celebrate my birthday this week. I received a free Birthday meal from Hot Pipis on Mooloolaba Esplanade so decided to booked a table. The weather was awfully and we contemplated cancelled as Hot Pipis is an outdoor restaurant. We decided to brave the weather and stroll down form the Seaview Resort.

The service and the food where outstanding and the weather was not a problem as they had enclosed the restaurant.

We ended up going down again the next day for coffee as they where donating all money made from the sale of coffee to the Flood Relief.
