"With a name like "The Fridge Cafe" I just had to check this place out! It's choice as mate :D Pie changes you. :D"
"I have only ever eaten pies from this place. The best. Everyone who has been here will tell you that everything is great but I am strictly pies, my favourite from here is the steak and mozzarella. I actually don’t think there is anything else that needs to be said here, it all really speaks for itself. STEAK.AND.MOZZARELLA. Oh, apart from that it is slightly on the pricey side but you cannot put a price on a STEAK AND MOZZARELLA PIE. Capitals necessary to exentuate my enthusiasm."

"Been there about 4 times in just 3 months now, and have never been disappointed! Their chicken club sanwich burger is made with whole chicken breast fillet, with lots of salad and sauce so its not too dry. Their burgers are also quite big so you're always really full by the time you finish. Combo was $10 which came with refillable drink and skin-on fries, which is better than paying $16+ at Burger Fuel for pretty much the same thing. Their portobello mushroom burger is really good too, which really gave what the name suggests- heaps of mushrooms in the burger! Haven't tried their breakfast menu but heard its pretty good. Their cookies and cream thickshake is my favourite though! "
"Of all the major chain burger joints, Carl's Jr stands out head and shoulders above the rest. The burgers are big enough to suit any appetite, and there's a good range of different options. Always popular, check it out. Must try: Jim Beam Bourbon Burger (comes with bacon, onion straws, and tasty bourbon sauce)."

"Drive through the Domain, show them the Museum then head to the Winter Gardens to check out the rare flowers."
"I came here once on a date in a half hearted attempt to try and fake that I was cultural and intellectual. There ended up being an exhibition on about the ocean which in theory seems interesting but after seeing fish after fish which all look the same it is hard to keep your game face on. Despite this temporary lapse in keeping up my façade, I was thinking the entire time how it is such a great place to go on a date because there is always something to discuss with the exhibits around you if you get stuck for something to talk about. There are different exhibitions on all the time here, covering heaps of fun and fascinating themes. Extra points for boys if you bring her here at night to look at how it is lit up so beautifully."
