Maylands used to be “home” for E and I. A few years back we lived down by the river in a super cute townhouse and we frequented the Eighth Avenue and Whatley Crescent brunch spots on the regular.
I’ve had the same discussion with a few friends lately about how shattering it is when your favourite local neighbourhood cafe becomes way too busy and popular that you can no longer just pop in on a Sunday morning without having to wait for a table. I’m obviously very happy for the cafe owners who deserve all the recognition and customers they are attracting, but I miss my local. My local is now everyone’s local.
