We lasted about 10 minutes in Westfield and then went for a walk through (and beyond) Church Street Mall.
Trying to find a reasonably priced dinner in Parramatta was looking increasingly unlikely when we came across a small cafe at the end of a block.
The Mars Hill cafe tags itself as "Where thinkers drink". It is focussed on ethical business practices, supporting artists and musicians to have a performance space, fair trade and supporting people to develop relevant work skills in a supportive community environment.

We arranged to drop off some Defend Our Water brochures and a poster advertising the St Peters protest on Sunday (18/9). We also donated two T-shirts ... one each of "Don't frack the earth" and "Don't frack with me" for staff to wear.
It was a pleasant surprise to see an expression of "community" in the heart of the city. Maybe there is hope after all!
