With 2016 fast nearing its end, we took some time out to compile a list of a few of our favourite things here at Intentional this year.

Coffee: Padre – Daddy’s Girl. For those of you who like their coffee strong, Daddy’s Girl blend makes a killer latte. Plus in recent months has been a favourite via Aeropress too. Find it here. Meal: Crispy Eggs @ Mr Hendricks. In a year dominated by talk of the classic Smashed Avo, it was impressive to find a brunch spot doing something innovative that actually added to the flavour, not just being different to be different. Oh & guess which coffee they serve? Wine: 2014 Taylors Clare Valley Shiraz. Saying yes to a sommelier AirBnb guest might have made for some slow mornings for one of our Intentional team in 2016, but it also helped uncover an absolute gem.

Movie: Hunt for the Wilderpeople.  Movie Soundtrack: In the heart of the sea. Album:

Ask a VW fan and they'll say ...
