St Georges Bakehouse

Merkel and Myrtle visited the St George’s Bakehouse at 476 Portrush Road recently. This was a well-stocked bakery sporting a number of awards for it production of meat pies. The coffee was Grinders Organic Blend. The hot chocolate was good and rich but was more expensive than the coffees at four dollars. The hot chocolate was served in a ceramic cup and saucer and topped with a white froth.

Amalfi Pizzeria Ristorante

Amalfi, at 29 Frome Street, has been established in Adelaide for many years. Merkel met there recently with old friends who had first dined together at the Italian restaurant more than twenty years ago. Amalfi has a good menu of pizzas, pasta and other Italian dishes. The service was excellent as exemplified by Nicholas, our attentive waiter.

The hot chocolate came in a brown ceramic cup and saucer. It was topped with white froth and liberal sprinkle of chocolate powder. The flavour was rich, dark and not too sweet.
