There is also a new trivia team at the Club.  Starting from 7pm every Tuesday, it’s time to experience the club’s newest form of entertainment. Questions range from cartoons and comics to philosophy, literature, sport and movies.  There is something for everyone, young and old.  The evening will be split into three rounds and is designed to ensure no one feels out of their depth, or that they cannot win.

Its lots of fun, so grab a meal from the new restaurant and join the trivia team for some laughing, eating and drinking!

Burns Bay Bookery (the old Lane Cove Books and Moirs Book Shop) on Burns Bay Road re-opened with some familiar faces at the helm!!


Baku Swimwear

Baku Swimwear is back in Lane Cove and the store looks great. The manager will be very familiar to you. She used to own Dots for about 12 years.  It is located at the Plaza in the new development.



Two Brothers

Two Brothers looks like it is close to opening.  It is located in the old Aristocrat coffee shop.  They are recruiting for staff.  Still not much is known about the menu and the type of food they will be serving.

Fourth Fish

Fourth Fish Seafood Restaurant will be opening soon.  It is located next to the old Gloria Jeans shop.

This is a new cafe and pizza place opening in Mowbray. It was due to open in September, but it does not look like that will happen.

First Learning Australia

First Learning Australia Child Care Centre will be opening in Lane Cove West Business Park in early 2016.  They will be open 24 hours 7 days a week. You can email them at [email protected] to find out more.


Speaking of childcare, a DA has been lodged with Council to open a new Child Care Centre in the old Mandalay Function Centre on Burns Bay Road.


Indian Fusion Restaurant and Bar

A new indian restaurant (they also have one in Pymble) will be opening in the old Red Chopsticks restaurant just above The Cake Man.  This is a sample dish from their Facebook site.


Nail Bar

A new nail bar will open in the arcade at the Longueville Hotel end of Longueville Road (where MBE Lane Cove and Pilates Connection and the Laughing Ganesha are located)



A new Family Photographer has leased the space next to Snowberry.  We will provide more details on this shortly.


MinMax closed mid September.  The store was located in the Lane Cove Market Place (just at the top of the escalator).  It is rumoured that the Source Bulk Foods will take over this store and the Feet First store (who are moving to the old One Village Shop near Story).

Shoe Superstore

The Shoe Superstore, on Longueville Road, is set to close by the end of October. They are having a clearance sale, with nothing over $39. Stock is dwindling fast though, so make haste.

Pureflowers celebrated 20 years in Lane Cove this week.  They did it in style with a fab party, and they also gave away 20 bouquets to local not-for-profit and volunteer organisations who were nominated by their customers and In the Cove Facebook Fans.  They received many nominations with the most nominations going to the staff at the Lane Cove Library – we love our books in Lane Cove.

ITC and her sister run a business called Stylie.

Stylie sells the Lane Cove Tea Towel.  The tea towel is available at The Cake Man.  We have just done a reprint of the tea towel. It used to be printed in Lane Cove but our wonderful silk screener is no longer available. That is sad, but every cloud has a silver lining and we now can bring you some more colours. It is available in Red, Black and Light Blue (we like to call it sexy kitchen blue).


Stylie also runs gift wrapping workshops and if you would like to have one in your home (for min 10 people) let us know by emailing us here.

In the Cove Website will be Launched Mid October

We are very excited about taking the next step of launching the In the Cove website.  Every day we are contacted and asked for information that has been on the Facebook page.  The website will capture all this information and make it easier for you to find recommendations etc.  To find out about the website click here

Every week we receive unsolicited recommendations from Lane Cove residents wanting to thank a business for going the extra mile.  Now you will be able to post those recommendations directly to the business directory.  Word of mouth is so important when you are looking for a local business and the business directory will be a great place to look at other people’s experiences.  The business directory will fund the website.  If you own a local business and would like to take advantage of our pre launch special rates please email us asap.

Thank you to our Foundation Sponsors who have funded the development of the  website;
