Getting a little bit Italian for the ‘I’ Cake

Funny how hard it can be to find places and cakes starting with a letter. But, of course, with a little bit of brainstorming we did it. We decided on Capri on Via Roma located at Isle of Capri (yes, I for Isle! very creative) on the Gold Coast, Australia. The Isle of Capri is a canal suburb of the Gold Coast developed in the 1950’s. Now, this small island is home to some beautiful houses, parks, and a dining precinct at the Capri on Via Roma. All the streets on this island are named in an Italian way: The Lido; The Corso; Valencia Ave; Naples Ave.

We decided to have Italian cakes and some delicious and strong iced coffee at Manolas Bros.

On a hot day what can be better than a strong Italian made iced coffee?  This one lived up to all expectations: it was icy cold, strong expresso, and soy milk.

After our cake and coffee we headed off for a walk in the park. It is small but peaceful park.
