The final Brunch with T – a fond farewell from this columnist

Starting my career in the family newspaper has been a privilege and something I value greatly. Last year I, applied and was accepted to be a reservist in the Royal Australian Navy and at the end of last year an opportunity came up for me to be appointed full-time. The opportunity to serve my country is an honour and one I could not refuse. So this will be my final column for Have a Go News as I embark on a new adventure with the Royal Australian Navy.

Our reviews will continue in a new format and I am sure editor Jen will keep you posted on my progress after I complete my training course.

Due to the Covid outbreak my movements have been restricted before I leave, so for my last column I made a dash for takeaway from a lovely little café just around the corner from home.

Family-owned Aposto is well worth a visit, with delicious coffee and a great selection of home-made goodies.

I liked the fact it’s off the beaten track, just around the corner from Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre, and very well patronised by locals.

Aposto’s fare is well priced and the cabinet is full of delicious treats which made it hard to choose.

Jen and I stuck to the basics ordering a bacon and egg roll ($10) which was full of delicious smoky bacon, creamy egg and home-made tomato sauce.

The toasties are great value and the ham and cheese ($7) was just how we like them; crispy on the outside and oozing cheese.

I am definitely a sucker for a sweet treat so we shared a cinnamon scroll ($4.50), lemon slice ($3) and a hundreds and thousands biscuit ($3) purely for research purposes. 

The coffee is delicious and we enjoyed a large flat white ($4.50) and an iced coffee with ice-cream ($7) which was perfect on a hot morning.

Aposto has an excellent range of bagels, sandwiches, pastries – both sweet and savoury, cakes, biscuits, slices and home-made gelato. They also have a range of gluten free treats too.

I was disappointed I couldn’t dine in but Aposto was a worthy visit for my last column with friendly service and easy parking. A little secret to be shared. 

Take care readers, I salute you.
