Popping into Simmone Logue Double Bay for a Devonshire Tea ($12/person) last month reminded me of how useful her freshly made dinner options were, particularly back when I was living alone and time poor. While I was tucking into fluffy golden scones with house-made preserves and cream, most visitors to the store were loading up on takeaway dinner, from hearty serves of chunky split pea and ham soup, to Vietnamese chicken pho to rich beef bourguignon. You can also head down to the wide, leafy, tree-lined streets of Double Bay for a Sunday Roast ($27.50/person) until the end of August. After admiring their counter of sweet stuff, I’d suggest you throw in a traditional pudding like sticky date, bread and butter, or apple crumble ($5.50/person) to make the most of your Sunday away from the washing up! By the way, this popular café has both indoor as well as outdoor (dog-friendly) seating.
