His and Hers coffee
D & D has a cute tea garden at the back

Suburban Hendra is an unlikely spot to find award winning coffee, but Dandelion and Driftwood have done just that. I'm rather attracted to hot pink Geraniums in window boxes and white picket fences, so this place won me over before I'd even walked through the door.

Sweet Geraniums in window boxes

With vintage doilies on all their tables and a tempting array of sweets on display, Dandelion and Driftwood oozed old fashioned charm. We were lucky enough to score a table in the tea garden, which is tucked away out the back under black and white umbrellas.

The good old white picket fence

The best bit about D & D is the award winning his and hers coffee - hers being the softer "Dandelion" blend and his being the heavier "Driftwood" blend. Expect your latte to be served with a card explaining the origin of the blend and "notes" to look out for, such as caramel in the Dandelion blend or cedar in the Driftwood blend. Stronger coffee lovers might be served the "El Salvador" blend, picked at high altitude, so the card informed us.

Sardines Pollastrini served in the tin

My daughter enjoyed her "Fluffy" (aka babycino) and moist banana and blueberry bread. I could not go past the Sardines Pollastrini, served in their tin with dill and rocket salad. D & D serves such great coffee that they have installed a take away bar on the footpath, so if it gets a bit busy, rest assured you won't miss out on your caffeine fix.
