Pancake Train, Margate
It was fun sitting in the carriage - really felt like we were on a train! minus the noise and shaking....
there was also a very interesting expat grocer in one of the other carriages which I thought was so cool. it had mostly lollies [which i love] from South Africa, the UK, Scotland, The Netherlands and Germany. The Dutch salted licorice fish were something I'd only ever seen in magazines before!
Later we stopped by Meredith's orchard grocer and got some really nice Fuji apples for $2 a kilo [which are much bigger & nicer than those supermarket ones]. The place had a nice rustic feel and no home brand items in sight! A nice change from the big bad supermarket chains.
Margate's a nice quiet suburb with water views, a few nice cafes, a butcher, greengrocer and a great fishing spot with Kingston's shopping centre nearby...and a very huge bottle shop!
