It's been 3 months!

3 months have flown by pretty swiftly and within those months, three spoons have managed to experience and survived the effects of

* First school holidays
* The Beijing Olympics &
* The Numerous footy matches at Olympic Park

We're looking forward to some warmer weather and our very first Spring!

three spoons has welcomed some new additions to our T2 tea range, which now includes rooibos, gunpowder green, just peppermint, lemongrass & ginger, oolong, chai, earl grey and good old english breakfast.

July's artwork included paintings by Betty Manro. Below are just some detailed photos of the multiple layers throughout the canvas.




About a month ago we put up a poster advertising studio spaces for artist at Olympic Park, since then we've slowly filled the wall with local business cards, articles, polaroids and have now deemed it the "Wall of Fame!"

See you soon!

Private Function - 12/07/08

(click for larger image)

three spoons' had our first private function last week for one of the regulars who just resigned and is jetting off to Europe for a few months with his lovely wife. We organised a set menu and being a bit of a wine connoisseur, they had matching wines for each course. The evening was casual, relaxed and fun. We had a great time working and tasting the leftover food is always a plus!

So the cafe is casual and not at all a formal type of place, but there was definately no compromise when it came to the food!

Green vegetable soup.

Fresh salmon ready to be cooked.

The end result - pan roasted salmon on a bed of parmesan mash potato with asparagus and salsa verde.

The View - Inside and Out

It rained most of last week but in between the few showers we managed to take a few snaps of the place. Our bright orange umbrellas was donated to us by the local Concord West Pub (on the corner of Victoria Ave and Queen St) and it has definately helped in attracting a few customers.

We're trying to make an effort to change the artwork in the cafe each month, so for June, new paintings by Louis Ricaud was hung recently to liven up the place.
(all are available for sale if interested)
