‘The Shack’ Monterey ’17

Reading 📖, Occassional dine-in 🍴 and Eating on-the-go 😝. I’ll let the photos do the talking for this one – simple and sweet 👊🏼

While collating these photos 📷 I noticed a “pattern”- It’s ultimately a photographic series of my weekly endeavours and habits.

Things you should know?
– The shack is a mini grocer plus a cafe all in ONE ☝🏼 (You can pick up some quick and healthy treats, if you’re an acai fan they stock Amazonia’s Acai product so you can acai bowl DIY 💜)
– It actually looks like a shack LOL (I guess that’s the theme they’re going for – the outdoor area during summer had water sprays 💦 to keep you cool – mini sprinklers – now that it’s cooler they have gas heaters to keep you warm)
– LOTS of gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and paleo treats (IN LOVE with their paleo muffins 😍)
– Self order at the counter BEFOREHAND (this was a little confusing at first, but you get use to it 🤔)
– I’m a huge Almond Milk fan, especially in my coffee ☕️, but it’ll cost you an extra $1, it’s pretty decent coffee (just thought I’d give you the heads up in advance)
– Water is SELF-SERVE from a water efficient tank ✌🏼💧

What do you get when you combine a passion for reading with a food enthusiast?? 🤔… The spread you see before your eyes haha ☕️+📚=👌🏼 #oldschool #physicalbooksarebetter #leisurereading #bookstagram #bookworm – What better way to ease into all those readings, than to start with a Great Book 📖 #tokillamockingbird #vintagelee #lawschoolbound Naturally a little treat and coffee ☕️ to keep you inspired 😌 Dairy FREE Almond milk lattè @dairyfreelattes @dairyfreenoms and Vegan, Gluten and Refined Sugar FREE Snickers Cake 🤤💕! @glutenfreegirlinsydney @glutenfreeveganfood @best_gluten_free_lifestyle @sydneyveganguide @veganfoodspot @sydneyfoodcritics @ontuesdaywebrunch #glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #sydneyeats #wholefoodsmarket #foodie #brunch #foodhi #zomato #fcba #sydneybesteats #coffeesessions #coffee #instagood #instastyle #flatlay #nerdpride #lifeofaunistudent #talesofabrunchiesydney The Shack Monterey

  2. Your pictures are so amazing, Ambaya! Those dishes seem finger-licking! How did you like ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’?

    1. Thank you!!! Such lovely words 💜💜💜 I absolutely LOVE to kill a mocking bird!! One of my all time favourites!! I’ve also read go set a watchmen a couple of times, but to kill a mockingbird will always be my favourite Harper Lee novel!
