Recorded Music Salon Cafe
11 Collins Street
I used to walk past the Recorded Music Salon on the way to lunch or while running an errand. It always seemed closed. Dark. Quiet. An anomaly in a busy area of the CBD.
The one thing I do remember is that there was a vinyl recording of Barbra Streisand in the window. It was always there. In all the years I've walked past, Barbra would peer out from the window.
Maybe it wasn't for sale?
Maybe no one wants a piece of Babs?
These days, a convenient convenience store takes its place.
But upstairs, a cafe has recently opened up and has adopted the name of the shop in which Babs used to reside.
We had a chocolate croissant and tried the Baked Egg with jamon, tomato and rocket. This was perhaps a bit dry but we liked the idea.
Great to get out of the buzz of the streets
Great view of the Paris end of the city
Great cawfee and friendly service
