Oliver Brown Lane Cove is owned by the delightful Judy, who will you make you very welcome. Oliver Brown’s barista has won the Barista of the Year competition at the Lane Cove Coffee Carnavale. Both Oliver Brown and Lodge are open for coffee till late (many coffee shops in Lane Cove close by 3-4pm).
Oliver Brown is the ultimate dessert destination, specialising in decadent dishes made from the finest quality chocolate, imported directly from the worlds chocolate capital in Belgium. The Oliver Brown story began in 2009 in Belgium, when two friends discovered the taste of authentic Belgian chocolate whilst travelling Europe, and immediately became obsessed with the flavour. Struck by the rich sensory experience of Belgian chocolate, their vision was clear – to deliver Belgian inspired chocolates and desserts to everyone at any time across Australia, and eventually the world.
Oliver Brown offers waffles, crepes, chocolate fondue, chocolates, coffee, drinks and shakes, as well as all of the beautiful trimmings of ice cream, chocolate sauce, fresh fruit and chocolate drops. Oliver Brown also caters for a late night chocolate craving or a hot chocolate on a rainy day but also offers a local hangout spot and a central hub for people to come together and indulge in their favourite dessert delights.

Trendsetter Travel and Cruise
Trendsetter Travel is small but successful, with a mission to do the best by their clients!
When Trendsetter Travel was established in April 1992, they had no guaranteed clients. As a completely new business, they knew the only way to survive and succeed was to make each travel experience count. They believed that happy customers would come back… and they did… they told their friends and business colleagues. So here we are still, loving every minute of what we do!
Buoyed by the success of their Longueville agency, Adrienne (Trendsetter’s founder) expanded the network in November 2009 to a new site within Lane Cove Market Place at Lane Cove so that locals closer to that locale could enjoy the same great deals and service.
Trendsetter can organise any trip you want to take. So speak to their consultants today. If you are an avid golfer, you may want to speak to Trendsetter about their bespoke golf tours.
