One of the advantages of living in Ballarat, is that due to the cooler climate, people love cafes, as a way to get out of the cold :). As a result there are heaps of cafes (at least one per block on Sturt Street) and some great coffee as a result!
Vegas and Rose is a lovely new cafe which has just opened up in Humffray St North. Its location is a little off the beaten track of Sturt Street, but still close enough to town to drop in and have a cuppa.
Pen (short for Penthea) has decided to combine her love of retro ephemera and collectables with a love of coffee. There is a small collection of collectables that can be browsed and oohed and aahed over- Pen has an Etsy shop also called Vegas and Rose :).
And the coffee is good too! There is a little collection of shortbready mini melting moments and the muffins, both sweet and savoury are delicious.
Little people are also catered for, with little benches, books and the babycino 🙂
