Good Things is a cafe set in a parade of shops on leafy Wellington Street in Mosman Park. We arrived for breakfast on a Sunday morning and felt that the cafe had a really good vibe with seating inside and out. It’s big, clean and airy, and pet friendly – they happily provide a bowl of water for dogs.

We started with a coffee while perusing the menu. Wow the coffee is really good, with beans from Micrology coffee roasters. I chose an iced soy coffee and my partner had a soy flat white – both delicious.

The menu has a slight Korean influence with items like Kimchi and sweet potato fritters, as well as some breakfast favourites such as muesli, hotcakes, eggs and some really healthy looking bowls – The Hulk contains avocado, peas, mint, pickles red onion, whipped feta, seeds and sourdough.

Eventually I plumped for the Chilli scrambled eggs with Korean sambal, soy caramel bacon, crispy shallots and roti. This was a very tasty plate of food. On it’s own the bacon was a bit sweet for my tastes, but combined with the eggs and roti, it was really good. I also had a side of kale.

My partner chose the Weekend Waffles with southern fried chicken, bacon, chilli, butterscotch and waffle. Again, he felt that the butterscotch was sweet, but including all of the elements in each mouthful tasted really nice and it was a dish that got better and better as he ate it.

There was a board of lunch specials which looked really nice for our next visit:

We really liked Good Things. The staff are lovely, the coffee amazing, the food quirky and tasty, and the environment clean and bright. They play some pretty good chilled music too. I loved everything about this cafe.

Samson’s Paddock – Mosman Park

Samsons Paddock Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

We chose Samson’s Paddock on a bit of a whim. I received an email to tell me that it was included in the Entertainment Book, and the pictures looked nice, so I booked.

It is in Glyde Street, Mosman Park – an interesting building with comfy armchairs, an upper deck and lots of nooks and crannies. We were seated on a high shared table – which I didn’t mind too much as we had booked fairly late, given the choice I prefer a regular height table.

Samson’s serve every drink that you could imagine, and also craft beers – we chose our favourite Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine – and had a nice variety called Lone Goat.

The menu has tapas style sharing dishes and bigger dishes too. We went for the tapas style.

The first dish we chose was panko crumbed whiting and prawn with a daikon salad and spicy aioli dip. The prawns and fish were good quality, a nice size, and everything on the plate tasted good. The salad was nicely coated with dressing – a very nice dish to start.

Next came wagyu rib fingers with kimchi. These were the star of the meal – beautifully spiced, boneless, rich, melt in the mouth – full of flavour and very very moreish.

Third we had a citrus salad with oranges, radish and cucumber. It had a nice selection of different oranges, but I would have liked some more slices. Again, every leaf was coated in dressing and it was a salad that had been prepared with care.

Next came a confit duck leg with kasundi (an Indian tomato relish), ginger and cabbage. Again, presented and prepared with care, the duck was melting and tasty and everything on the plate went well together.

We did choose another dish, but it was so tasty that we didn’t have time to take a photo. We chose a cheeseboard with brie – it arrived with fruit bread, grapes, figs, and craisins. The brie was perfectly ripe and oozy but the bread was a little stale and I would have preferred some fresher slices.

All in all with our $34 Entertainment book discount, it was a lovely meal and we will definitely be returning.
