    1 – it is most unfair to show me such a lovely selection of pastries at morning tea time
    2 – mmmmmm cheese
    3 – I bet you eat the parsley too don’t you?
    4 – not to question E.Moonbeams’ artistic creativity but why is she not the moon?
    5 – I want to be in The Overseas
    (… I couldn’t decide which random thought to share so you got a selection – serves you right …)

    I haven’t been to silo for ages but the cheese room is divine! Anywhere that includes a cheese room is just fine by me. And now I’m craving pastry, damn this health kick I’m on!
    P.S. thank you for the truffle offer, it is so lovely, however due to the affore mentioned health kick I’m off chocolate for awhile – I know, it is as hideous as that sounds.

    *sigh* I too am all about the cheese room!

  4. Leah

    Mmmm Silo Bakery was a favourite of mine, when i lived in the ACT. I dont remember there being a cheese room though 😛 Looks wonderful, love me some cheese 😀

  5. Lou

    I would have eaten the garnish too. I don’t like bread/pastry at all. Just give me the toppings ya!

    Stinky cheese… ick. Never understood it!

    Dear Hannah,

    I used to dislike blue but I now wonder what the fuss was all about for not liking it. A bit like not liking Ugly Betty when in fact she is absolutely gorgeous 🙂

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Our difference number [something small] is that I will never, ever, ever get excited about a cheese room 🙂 I feel a bit sick thinking about it. But I’m glad your farewell outing was as stupendous as it sounds like it deserved to be, and I hope one day you can transfer across to the LA dessert and wine your heart is longing for.

    (Except, dear Hannah, why not arrive for the *start* of dessert?? I’d recommend that, if you were looking for guidance on your dreams, which is of course a very presumptuous thing to offer 😛 ).

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh yes that cheese room! Ooh I just thought of the best idea for a house-a cheese room in a house! Forget wine cellar, it’s about cheese. And while we’re there, a chocolate room too!

  9. Catherine

    What a send off! I think I would have washed that lovely cheese down with some gorgeous red wine.
    I’d love one of those pastries for brekkie.

  10. ck

    WOW. That is all.

  11. Gary

    Looks great. I’ve had stuff there before and was very nice. My only concern now though is it was closed not long ago for Salmonella in its mayonnaise.

  12. Helena

    Looks amazing! I wish I lived in Canberra or at least that Silo bakery could mail me some pastries and blue cheese 🙂

  13. Margaret

    The apple tasted of evil! Oh dear. I assume you’re still with us on this planet darling? 🙂

  14. Emma

    I love the card:) Plus, it’s like an illustrated tutorial to the southern hemisphere night sky! I will study it.

    I would never throw pot plants at your head. Girl, where I come from, that shit’s illegal!

  15. Hotly Spiced

    Whenever I go to a restaurant if there’s a cheese plate on the menu I’ll always order it – particularly if there’s blue cheese – what in the world is better! Great post Hannah! xx

  16. whisperinggums

    Poor Hannah, lucky Jenniqua. Sounds like a perfect send-off.

  17. Johanna GGG

    You have googly eyes in your office drawer – I would love to see the reports you submit 🙂 Such a cool card.

    I would love to go to this bakery – it was on a wish list when we went to canberra but I don’t think it was convenient like other places but I just love a bakery cafe, esp one with a cheese room.

    “I like my peanut butter sans toast”

    This was only the first thing in this post to make me smile. There were tons of other occurrences too, ending with that EPIC card. 🙂

  19. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Oh why don’t we have a nice bakery like that somewhere around here? I would buy up every single one of those tarts (especially the lemon) and gobble all of those cheeses. Shut up and take my money!

    Sorry your friend is leaving, but at least she is in the fine company of a sloth and baby pig riding monkey on her epic rocket journey.

  20. Ashley

    Sorry you miss your friend, it’s always hard when you spend so much time with someone and then they’re just not around as much 🙁

    But on another note. Woah. Ur. So when are the next cheap flights up your way? Think I need me some cheese…

  21. Louise

    That’s a great card. I always like to squeeze a visit to Silo in any visit to Canberra. I love the tarts! Such deliciousness. I should use the cheese room, but it’s tricky when you’re travelling, you have to think ahead and plan eskies. I don’t believe we’ve ever had a sit down meal there- it’s always too crowded, and we never have time.

  22. Rach

    All those pastries look lovely despite your indifference to them! 😉

  23. Erin@TheFoodMentalist

    Oh Silo how I LOVE thee!

  24. Kath Lockett

    I kinda sorta agree with you re pastries – no wheat or any other (known) allergies as my reason; just a preference for slices, cakes and chocolate.

    LOVE the card – I choose homemade over purchased every. single. time. My father still has his ‘Old Fart’ card I made in 1984 with rather beautiful, hand-drawn lettering on the front with rainbow colours inside.

  25. Libby

    Oh wow, that mushroom pizza looks BOSS!

    This place is definitely going to be on my list of places to go to when I finally go to Canberra (was planning to go this Easter to check out the Renaissance exhibition at the NG but sigh, finances prevented me 🙁

  26. muppy

    haha,no comment on the card but my oh my that cheese, amazing……definitely worth a visit……

  27. Winston

    Oh wow this place is awesome, Hannah! I’d love to be able to try the variety of blue cheeses you had. Don’t think I’ve had more than one type at a time before so it’d be interesting to draw the differences and highlights from each. So much yummy delectable goodness to choose from. You’re one lucky girl! ;p

  28. Sig

    Mmmm pastries…but you know the real star of the show is the CHEESE. BRING IT ON!

    I love the Gippsland blue – I’ve only really just started warming to the idea of blue cheese and slowly getting my palate used to it. That particular one is delicious.

    I am with you on the hand-made cards!! One anniversary I made Evs a card with a cartoon guitar on it (can you guess his gifts were guitar related??) and the words “I’m glad you PICKED me” and the word ‘picked’ was actually a guitar pick glued to the front. I thought it was genius. 😀

  29. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    um, that card is awesome! Sweet post 🙂 I must visit this silo place of fantastic deliciousness.

  30. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Great bakery 🙂 I can’t wait to check it out ~ It’s definitely hard to say goodbye when someone so close to you leaves 🙁
    Everyone looks great and very reasonably priced too ~ only $19 for a whole pizza hehe!
    All the best to Jeniqua~
