Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at brizzymaysbooksandbruschettasite.wordpress.com

Having your cake and eating it too
I recently took myself to the cinema at Capalaba Central Shopping Centre and thought that I would complete my outing with a coffee and sweet at a cafe. No men, no grandchildren and the week before Christmas. Hey, I had earned it! Know what I mean?

Cafe Two 14 was my find for the month.



Only recent to Capalaba and with branches also at Strathpine and Chermside, the cafe's beginnings are founded in the history of the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry).

"The 2nd/14th LHR (QMI) was formed in 1952, though sentimentally traces its lineage to 1860. Consequently, there was a claim that it was the oldest Australian Regular Army unit through the antecedent units 2nd Moreton Light Horse (QMI) and the 14th West Moreton Light Horse (QMI) and celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2010. Cafe Two 14 continues to honour our heritage and the veterans who served Australia in the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment by adopting the green and white patch colours in our branding as well as their motto, 'forward'." See here.

Light Horse acknowledged on menu


Although the cafe sits in the middle of a thoroughfare, it is vibrant and fresh surrounded by good energy. The menu includes most things that people require : All Day Breakfast, Bagels, Toasties, Croissants and Pancakes as well as an array of beverages.

My coffee and lemon tart were just delicious. Indeed, I was quite comfortable to just sit and relax for twenty minutes, enjoying my moment of peace, which is unusual at most suburban cafes. It wasn't just me either - several people were doing the same thing.

The director is ex military and the cafe raises funds for social justice programs to assist our veterans.

Does this qualify my Lemon Tart as a guilt-free treat? I hope so because it is an exercise worth repeating.
