Stealing Time @ Beejay’s
My favourite day of the work week is Tuesday when I drive past Marrickville on my way to visit client. For a long time, I was really adamant about moving to Marrickville. While this plan didn’t come to fruition, I seek consolation by stopping by at this rapidly changing suburb with many great ethnic restaurants and hipster-friendly cafes. And what a way to start the day by taking some time out in the morning and grab a bite in this charming neighbourhood.
Beejay to me is the quiet achiever of the Marrickville cafes. It doesn’t have the Timeout rave revies or the Good Food Guide seal of approvas but I think it is just a matter of time before it does. At the age of 20, owner Benjamin is very likely the youngest cafe owner in Sydney, if not the entire universe. Service is casual by friendly and they are always up for a quick chat if they are not busy whipping out lattes for those in need.
One of the many things that meditation teaches me is to observe and acknowledge my feelings. Sitting at the window at Beejays in the morning and watching the world go by certainly brings me a feeling of calm and tranquil. A fantastic coffee and a breakfast bruschetta with poached eggs, grilled asparagus and truffle oil are just the icing on the cake.
