The Suite, Shenton Park

A few doors down from The Little Pantry is The Suite, a small cafe and bar in Shenton Park . The Suite reminds me of a cafe in Berlin that we adored so much - it was small, dark, cosy and relaxed. It felt like a place to escape into conversation. We ordered the unusual lemon scone to share with our coffee and it was flavorsome with the butter. The coffee was superb ...

My Birthday with a Patisserie Cake

Happy Birthday to me! This year I thought I would be organised and order a cake from the Swiss Patisserie in Subiaco, Chez Jean Claude. The family were meeting at our place followed by dinner in Chinatown, Northbridge. The very tiny patisserie has a fairly large website of many choices of desserts, breads and pastries. Through the website you can also specify when to pick up your purchase, I think at ...

Just like Nonna's!   My choice of treats was the avocado and pineapple macaroon and the apricot saffron macaron.Good God! The flavors are strong and complimenting. Coffee was a ...

Macarons and Coffee

A combination worthy of my consumption. Today's choice of coffee break was in the city at Jean Pierre Sancho on Hay Street. The good thing about this place is that it does not close early in the afternoon so it is possible to grab a coffee after 3.00pm! The macaron flavors we selected were passionfruit, Moet Champagne and hazelnut. The macarons were okay, they were fairly chewy and it was difficult to taste the flavors. ...

Sherbert Cafe and Bakehouse

So it was a Saturday afternoon and after sleeping in we were in dire need for a wake up and the Sherbet Cafe and Bake Shop in Maylands was beckoning our names. This vintage cafe has a nice relaxed atmosphere and a very big line of loyal customers. We basked in the sun at the front of the shop whilst consuming rather large cupcakes and good coffee. We could of easily shared ...

Choux Café, Swanborne

Sometimes the best place for a traditional dessert is away from the city and today it was on a residential street in Swanbourne in the middle of two small stores; a patisserie named Choux Cafe. Choux Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch serving an array of exquisite French cakes, savoury pastries and breads including coffee and tea. All the foods are handmade every day at the Cafe and I definitely ...
