Eating Out: Yavanna (mostly sweet edition)

In my last post, I covered some of the meals I'd had at Yavanna, but I also mentioned that they have a great selection of baked goods. It changes day by day, so you are never entirely sure what will be there. But they always have several delicious options, some of which are also gluten free, and some of which are savoury. While I've only eating in the restaurant a few times, for a while I was in a habit of popping in for a little treat. Especially at the end of a Saturday shift! I like to get myself a treat, go home, and watch Steven Universe. A good ritual, though it has been a while since I've been. Buckle in for a trip down things I've bought lane.

Dim Sim

Dim Sim's results came back confirming the UTI, so we've got four weeks of antibiotics ahead of us. She is much better now though, so that is good news!


  1. OMG I want all the treats! Being a mostly savory gal the cheese and vegemite scroll looks amazing!! But I would definitely have one of everything!
    I'm so glad the antibiotics are working fast on Dim Sim!!!

    1. They have other savoury stuff as well, some great savoury sausage rolls-style pastries in all sorts of flavours! I've had a few, though didn't get any photos.

  2. So many sweet treats, and the cheese & Vegemite scroll looks so good!
    Feel better soon, Dim Sim! <3

    1. Cheese and Vegemite is a classic scroll combination here, though Vegemite can be quite divisive if you are not Australian. Have you tried it?

    2. Nope, haven't had the chance to try it yet.

    3. How does the taste compare to Marmite (if you've had it)? I kind of like Marmite sometimes.

    4. Vegemite is stronger and saltier. It is my preferred mite of all the mites. The others seem too wishy washy for me flavour wise in comparison.
