MS MacDONALD (1.11 am): I rise to speak briefly about a couple of very fine establishments in my electorate and not far from where I live. The first is a lovely little place called the Curve cafe and restaurant at the Pearce shops. It is owned by Dom Robbie in conjunction with Digby. I do not know Digby's surname; I have to apologise. Dom and Digby established the Curve cafe and restaurant just over a year ago and it was my great pleasure to attend the first anniversary dinner of the Curve cafe and restaurant just a couple of weeks ago-on the Anzac Day holiday weekend.

I wish both Dom and Digby all the best for having established this cafe and restaurant. I enjoy spending many a Sunday morning having coffee there while the other half is doing what he does on a Sunday morning, which I do not partake of, not being of that particular religious persuasion. It is a great place to while away the time and I highly recommend it to members of the Assembly. It has truly added to what is a fantastic place to go and dine out in the suburbs. In the Pearce shopping centre, which is a very small community shopping centre, there are four restaurants. I can say that I have tried all of them and would recommend them all to members of the Assembly.
