The Rocks Aroma Festival

Sydneysiders love coffee.

They also love their tea and also their hot chocolate, if the unprecedented crowds at The Rocks Aroma Festival last Sunday provided any indcation.

By the time we got down there, many things has sold out including the special chocolate showbags from Adora, and the delectable treats from My Little Cupcake.

Thankfully we still found plenty of coffee. And that's more than enough to bring a smile to the face of this caffeine addict.

Can you say giant cupcake?

The ones around the edge were real, the one in the middle wasn't :)

This year's Aroma Festival was held on Sunday 22 July 2007 around The Rocks and Circular Quay. The Aroma Festival is held annually and this year included tea, hot chocolate and spice stands.

    Hi kt - Actually I just presumed it was fake. Maybe I should've snuck a bite to find out! :)

    Hi L - It was a good day indeed. Not sure about the chai traders. Hopefully someone will be able to help, otherwise try contacting the kind folk at The Rocks website?

    Hi ginger - Me too :)

    oooh I was there too! You're right, Sydney is full of caffeine addicts.

    I had one of the best espressos ever, a pretty cupcake, and bought some macadamias. It was a good day :)
