The Boomerang - My favorite coffee place

I hope you read about the crisis in my affairs when I had arrived in Sydney.  That was just the beginning!!!


A random sense of excitement, anxiety and hunger struck me. I freshened up a bit. My 14th floor serviced apartment in Meriton had a fascinating view from the living room. It was the first time I felt so high (Literally).  You couldn’t compare it with anything, Apart from the view; the apartment had a television-set, a cozy bed, and a furnished kitchen. All that sounds sophisticated but the only thing that I didn’t have at that time was money, to get some food. Nevertheless, I had thought, wouldn’t there be bread and butter for 30 dollars?! I wandered along the pavement of Kent Street, feeling very empty and small.  

Sydney is a very friendly city, I must say.

I was led to a T junction, and it was another street. In ten minutes, I knew George, Elizabeth, York, Clarence and Hunter. Yes, all street names; I did one full round of the Sydney CBD and I was lost. I looked around, and saw huge buildings; Ernst and young, Allianz, this and that. Finally, I spotted a huge ancient type building, beige in color, which looked to have sculpted domes and walls. I walked straight in and I knew I was making my way up to some historic building. Realization struck when I saw that I was following and was followed by a human stream when I reached the middle of the building where an amazing chandelier-like-humungous-clock was placed. Eventually, I found that I was in this massive place called Queen Victoria Building – QVB, ‘Wow’s flowed from my mouth like molten lava.

My hunger pangs took over and my senses were fading. Yet, there was a mesmerizing aura, a strong fragrance of coffee and maybe bread?!  Just like how they show in the movies, the smokey-coffeey aroma pulled me in the direction of that magical place. There it was. A long queue, a breathtaking aroma, and angels dressed in black serving coffee and pretzels. It was a divine feeling. I did pranayama ("extension of the breath") the whole time I waited. Finally, I found that place, a place which served the best coffee in the world as I know it. Lüneburger, the German Bakery.

There was not one single day when I visited Sydney CBD and I didn’t go to this place (Which is almost every day as my office was in the CBD), I used to quaff hot mocha every day from the German bakery.  

I won’t say “If I ever go back to Sydney, I’d go to the German bakery for a coffee” I’d rather like to recommend all those who are in Sydney and those visiting, not to miss this place. Please go!!

Eat out places in Sydney CBD:

QVB – Coffee shops to  chatime to ice cream pubs to cupcake bakery you find a lot of things here, just follow your nose

The Westfield mall in George street offers great dining options and it’s just a few yards away from the town hall station

For the chocolate lovers and the chocolate haters, go to this place to have a... What should I say, a ‘Yummmmm” experience. The place is Max Brenner. It is just across the Clarence Street.


Here are some pictures of the German Bakery:

For all those who are wondering why I always talk about food, all I have to say is you guys have a good sense of humor.  :)


In my next post, I will be telling you how I found my way to an Indian restaurant and how I landed up eating Sushi !!!



  1. see a coffee place...and the two ladies in black at the German bakery look like twins :P
    and you ate Sushi eh...waiting to check out that expression!! lol ;)

    1. hehe :) that was quite an experience re...
      Yea they do look alike :P from the back :P :D

  2. My office is in that alliance building :D
    I go through QVB every single morning... ohh the smell of fried fish and cakes!!! yummmm :D

    1. Cool... I don't know about the fish part, Princess, love QVB otherwise :)

  3. The Origina Replica Breitling claimed the bubble as a potential source of weakness that they were finally able to overcome with technology. Well, heading back to the late 1960’s and the high-end?,Rolex Submarine the brand took a page from the contemporary Detroit era of cars – as in, there’s no cure for cubic inches. In 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches case, though,He sent lots of pictures along the way to show the innards of the?Omega Watches , including the Hermes handbags correctly signed inside case back.

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:

What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

He could see her directly ahead through the shimmering blue glass window of Cafe Hafooda in Saket. The afternoon sun streamed along from the western side, casting long shadows across the table. Cyrus glanced up at Jennifer and then down at his mobile. 

JJ liked Cyrus but she had a lot of questions in her mind. What was he doing? Secretly texting someone? Investigating without her help? Trying to solve something before someone else is on it?
She was on this case with him. She wanted to do this for herself and for that little child and may be something more than she could comprehend. Whatever was his rationale, JJ decided to confront him. She spun herself around, sat down and found herself face-to-face with Cyrus. There was a sparkle in JJ’s eyes and Cyrus’s were menacing with thirst. Her tattoo seized Cyrus’s attention most. He was transfixed. There was some kind of ‘Ul…
