Michael Caine is the iconic face of a male Londoner living in the class discarding Sixties. His rough and ready and self assured attitude and rich Cockney voice struck a chord with the new self-made man of society. Caine forged a career as the protagonist in a series of crime thrillers which truly represented the grittier side of the over-glamorised ‘Swinging Sixties’.

Coffee and Dolphins…. Could anyone suggest a better way to start the morning? An awesome new space has just been redeveloped and it couldn’t be better placed. The Harts Collective rests above the water, nestled in behind Port Adelaide’s Hart’s Mill boasting a clean open-plan, shared space.

Winter is coming…. As we head into the cooler months in the Southern Hemisphere the catwalks are assembling to showcase the latest collections from designers worldwide. We had the pleasure of attending the Casper & Pearl A/W 15 ‘ABRACADABRA’ campaign at the Freemasons Hall in Adelaide, South Australia.

Mister Sunshines / 32 George Street / Thebarton / South Australia

It’s the attention to detail that regularly brings us back to this café. It’s the energetic and welcoming staff (“…hello handsome, welcome back…”) and the instant vibe that flows on as you step inside. It’s the handmade American Oak service bench that greats you, the stereo always acutely tuned into good soulful or folky moods (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Bon Iver, Massive Attack et al). It’s the dining furniture, plates, knives and forks; most of which may well have belonged to your grandparents and gives you a sense of warming and homely nostalgia. Its the care factor, the obvious passion for the local community and likewise the greater environment. And it’s the eco edge with pallet project centre-pieces in the front terrace which makes Mister Sunshine’s what it is.
