The Cassiopeia, Katoomba


I’m sitting at one of my new favourite cafes in the world, the Cassiopea in Katoomba. Like all the best finds, Clara and I stumbled upon it on our first day wandering around the Blue Mountains, and I’ve kept coming back since. Their roasted beans and coffee are so good, the staff are super friendly, and they’re open from 06:00 for us early-risers.

This is not to be confused with the Cassiopeia PDA which my mum used in the 1990s. Computer hardware used to be so much more interesting.
