Choo Choos at the Marina

Formally "Hogs Breath Cafe",  Choo Choos at the Marina is a bright airy cafe overlooking the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina at the Bally Hooley Station.

In no time at all the locals have started patronising it.

We tried breakfast on Friday 17 November 2017 "Big Breakfast - $19"

"Huevos Rancheros - $15"
Choo Choos at the Marina connects with Choo Choos at St Crispins which is another cafe on the Bally Hooley train line. Both cafes are also connected by the Choo Choo Explorer.

SASSI CUCINA - cnr Macrossan and Wharf Streets

One of our popular lunch spots in Macrossan Street is Sassi's opposite ANZAC Park.
For lunch we like good value and to be able to dine at a high end restaurant for a reasonable cost is always a pleasure. To keep the prices down we order the house wine which comes in a half litre carafe for $13. The white is Pinot Grigio and the red is Shiraz.

Sardines, not out of a can but honest to good salt preserved sardines on ciabatta with garlic, light chilli, parsley and of course the salt that the sardines come in. Teams perfectly with the house white Pinot Grigio.

Enter the main course - Pizza and the house red.

Pizza - Napolitana - $24
With a light beer and a gin and tonic - $87 the lot.
