This place is tucked away in a little alley away from the main drag of the Newtown area. Don’t be distracted by street vendors on the walkway and miss the turn into this paradise.

Campos coffee

I had my first taste of Vegemite years ago from an exchange student in school dormitory. It was too salty for my taste. Since I am taking holiday in Australia, where Vegemite is like peanut butter to Americans, I thought I better give it another try.
I ordered it in a breakfast sandwich with avocado and the combination of these two surprised me.
