I'm a student, happily married - can't wait to see what happens next!

If you love good food, get straight down to Chantilly's Coffee Lounge this weekend. In fact, you can get some shopping done too.
Set in the quieter alcove of the Macquarie Centre in North Ryde, this newly refurbished cafe presents delicious meals including a scrumptious all-day breakfast menu. They have a wide selection of lunch options from healthy sandwiches and wraps to deliciously hot pasta. The burger options are great accompanied by the most crunchy chips.
Those with a sweet craving won't be disappointed either. There is a fabulous range of cakes and sweets. Try the mouth watering carrot cake, one of the best on the menu, or if you like your dairy then indulge in their tasty cheesecake options. Chocolate, layer cakes and macaroons are also available alongside other slices and cookies.
The atmosphere of this place is surprisingly pleasant despite being in a large shopping centre. There is plenty of seating and space for those with prams or wheelchairs, as well as several booths for comfortable long visits. Also fantastic is the fact that you won't feel rushed despite the really quick service, the wait staff are cheerful and let you relax. You'll find long time customers sitting comfortably enjoying a cuppa and reading a book without being disrupted.
And of course, being a coffee lounge it has to be said that they do serve good coffee and a wide array of other hot and cool drinks.
