Petit Feast: A boozy brunch with French finesse

Hi Canberra, you might remember me as the high tea virgin who popped her cherry at a High Tea on the Burbury Terrace earlier this year. Well, after that indulgent experience I have my sights set on something a little more lavish at Buvette Bistro and Wine Bar – its much loved Petit Feast.
