Tea at Le Marché St. George

Le Marché St. George is a sweet little corner shop/café on a quiet street in a wholly residential neighbourhood.
It’s certainly the sweetest little corner shop…if fairytales had corner shops it’ll be it.
I fell in love with the market before I visited them; I first read about them, and then I knew I had to go when they were featured last year in Monocle’s ‘Best Café’s’.

It’s the kind of place to go for tea and a chat, and maybe daydream a little; it charmingly blends into the neighbourhood and makes time seamless. Oh how I wish we had one in our neighbourhood…
The market boasts carefully sourced local products, fresh seasonal organic produce and eclectic international finds.

The atmosphere is serene and laid back, the interiors aged and rustic, with shelves filled with beautifully packaged products.
More than a corner store, it feels like neighbourhood hangout, their selection of pastries and baked goodies are mouth-wateringly amazing.
The tea at Le Marché St. George is perfect, and there’s sweet little spot outside, made for sitting, and enjoying the simple pleasures of community.
