Celebrate the end of the school year with a sweet treat at one of these local spots – we’ve all earned it.

Elk Espresso
If you’re looking for a quick after-school stop-off, having a catch up with your bestie or just sneaking away from reality for a little ‘me’ time, Elk can’t wait to look after you. A great space to sip on some lattes while soaking up the sun. Don’t miss the Iced Vovo waffles!

Bam Bam Bakehouse
Known for their pastry creations and next-level breakfast offerings, Bam Bam Bakehouse is the perfect place for your end of year sweet treat. Enjoy a meal inside, or take them up on their ‘picnic in the park’ offer and have your food delivered to you on the grass.

Oh My, Waffle
As one might expect from their name, Oh My, Waffle absolutely nail the breakfast favourite. With vegan and non-vegan waffles to choose from, and combinations like salted caramel and banana, fruit and mini meringues and Kinder Bueno with melted milk chocolate, there’s something for everyone. 

Madisons Café and Patisserie
All the sweet treats, cakes, patisseries and desserts are made right here, on site, each day using local ingredients with love. Get your tastebuds down to Madisons, pronto!

Max Brenner
There aren’t many places that centre their menu on chocolate, which is why the King of Chocolate – Max Brenner – caused such a stir when he burst onto the scene back in the mid-2000s. Since then, this franchise has been serving up chocolate anything and everything – we’re talking pizzas, waffles, milkshakes… you name it.
