Apples on Ainsworth

My sister and her husband recommended Apples on Ainsworth {facebook page} to me knowing how much I'd love it. It's just a few suburbs away to the west of where I live so the boys and I dropped in for lunch.  
This part of Salisbury used to get visited frequently by me although I haven't been there for a couple of years so I was delighted and surprised to find this little gem. It's a whole heap of goodness tucked into a little shop. The food looked amazing, especially the big fresh salads and there was an interesting range of teas and beautifully packaged {yay} cold drinks to tempt me next time. Lots of deli items as well as a selection of gorgeously displayed fresh fruit and veges. 

oh and did I mention the small matter of vintage... tea sets, drink glasses, serving ware, salt and pepper shakers, my tea pot had a fluffy cosy, a relaxed and eclectic collection of tables and seats pottering about the wide shaded footpath, a big basket of blankets to take across the road to the park for a picnic...
I am looking forward to returning, rennovations are underway and I am sure something beautiful awaits.

I love the look and feel of this place. My sister's in Brisbane so I'll have to add it to my list of things to check out when I next visit.
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from new readers and visitors.
The Famous Five are adorable aren't they? I've been hunting down a biography of Enid Blyton and there's a telemovie too. Eeep.

Hi Katiecrackernuts, thanks for your visit!
I would definitely recommend visiting Apples next time you are up.
I see from an earlier post your Famous Fives still had their dust jacket intact - even better! {mine don't}.
I haven't seen the movie about Enid Blyton, I hear she was a very interesting character, also much criticised, however I am a massive fan and her stories were a formative part of my childhood.
Happy reading, glad to have discovered your blog, as Dick would say "it's wizard".
