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.

[Humor] - Shopping Mall crowd - Decoded

Staring shotguns - They are everywhere, one blaring stare, followed by next. Desperate uncles, jobless shoppers, housewives, nice-looking girls, security personnel, sweeping staff, staff from branded showrooms where even a housefly would hesitate to visit and not to forget the maniacs who peep into the toilets they can’t use. Did you know that the latest fad for a picnic spot for school kids is ‘visiting an overcrowded mall?

Clumsy kids - Kids running around with shopping trolleys in the madding crowd are a regular phenomenon in malls, especially when their moms are busy buying lipsticks and Kajals. Some kids do acrobatics by running in the opposite side of the travelators, which makes you want to hit the kids’ careless parents heads with a hard rock. Yes, one has to blame the grownups for such unbothered attitude. I feel bad for those parents who let go of their kids and later find them via announcements in bad English.

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…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
