Some days, I can’t even be bothered pretending to enjoy modern art (oh! First World misery). On those days, I make a beeline for the gallery cafe (and giftshop). Last week, my gorgeous friend Sophie from Canberra- conveniently stranded in Melbourne by the Chilean ash cloud, and I opted to savour coffee, cake and macarons provided by Cafe Vue at the Heide Museum of Modern Art, instead of the art. Regrets? None.

I have been wanting to go to the gallery as well – but is it bad to say that the macarons are a good inducement for the trip?
Not at all! The macarons were certainly the only reason I went!
