Triple A

Triple A Dry Cleaning is highly recommended. A friend of ITC dropped off a very delicate dress with a difficult stain. The stain could not be removed and in the process of trying to remove the delicate stain, the material was damaged. The owner sourced the exact same dress for my friend and gave it to her. This is exceptional service given my friend knew the stain would be difficult to remove.

Old Quarter Cafe

Cafe Zivelli has reopened as the Old Quarter Cafe. New name, new owner and new menu and you would not recognise the place.  The chairs outside have a Parisienne feel about them.  Not only can you eat in, or take away but the also offer catering.





Bella Cove Lingerie

Bella Cove Lingerie is unique in Lane Cove. The only place in Lane Cove where you can buy beautiful lingerie. It’s so much nicer to be properly fitted for a new bra in a specialty shop rather than a huge department store. ITC highly recommends you take your teenager to Bella Cove for their first fitting. They have a huge range including G and H cups.

If you are like ITC and have a large front porch, do not despair they have a huge range including G and H cups.
