Mal Cannon

We had a little function on Thursday with Barb form Nanshe’ to listen to Mal Cannon talk about the inner workings of his lovely brain. (His art is on the wall of the cafe for a month)

We served a simple vegetarian menu of:

Hummus and Naan bread served with a refreshing Chick Pea, Lemon & Cumin Drink.

Black Eyed Peas Curry made straight from this recipe

with roasted sweet potato, rice and Charmaine Solomon’s Mint Chutney recipe.


Finished with Dan’s flourless chocolate cake and some cream & strawberries.

Taking Candy from Babies.

Just thought we’d try a few lower sugar alternatives for the kids… and adults.

Weighing Out

Weighing Out

…. A little bit nerd.

All around the world now.

A lovely message from Aleta in Berlin & Emma in New York. Two girls who left a real mark on our lives here at Three Bean, both of which are fulfilling all their dreams in life.

Congratulation, we send you both a chocolate bullet.

9 Lives

Nine years ago today Kate and I opened our little cafe with help my old mate Sam, Alice, Lauren & Lucy.

We only had one child at the time but since have had four more, with Kate home full time and me mucking around here pulling coffees, washing dishes etc. Its been really great. Always.

Here’s a little of what Kate’s been up to in the last few years, she’s become a photographer.

Thank you Kate, for all your support, I hope you  all love her and her work like I do.
