Perth Inner City Park and Pastry Treats

Inner city life need not be one of chaos when you are on foot, especially spending a morning in sunshine eating delectable little pastries. A short walk from Northbridge and across from the 100 plus year old Hyde Park is a small bustling bakery called Chu Bakery. This sweet corner fixture to William Street is a popular place to be in the early morning and although it's not a cafe (with ...

Just Dessert at The Standard

Celebrating my birthday over the weekend we dropped past The Standard in Northbridge for some sneaky dessert.  The bar is located on the fringe of Northbridge along Roe street, a few blocks down from Chinatown where the likes of Billy Lees and Uncle Billys feed late night diners. Our first visit to The Standard and the rear garden undetectable from the street side is ultra cool, looks like a pleasant spot for drinking ...

CocoWhip at Nature’s Harvest

On the way to the beach one weekend we stopped by Nature's Harvest for a coffee, and to try CocoWhip. Napoleon Street, situated across from Cottesloe train station has a few good spots for coffee and Nature’s Harvest would have to be one of them. There are a couple of options on the menu for the coconut water based ice cream, and we select the tiramisu to share, thinking it’ll go perfectly ...

Bus Stop Cafe

Living in Perth, we have become so used to the pleasant summery weather that as soon as the sky turns grey and it rains ever so slightly, it's a big deal! You could even say we are a little spoiled living in this sunny state. Sunday morning, despite the slight change in weather (lets acknowledge a big change for us locals), we decided to venture out for a coffee somewhere along ...

Too much to choose from at Little Bird Cafe

Little Bird Café on Lake Street is one of my favourite cafes in Northbridge and not just for the coffee and food. It’s a cafe with ambiance and a quaint courtyard alfresco area where you can enjoy Perth's mostly mellow weather. While I tend to shy away from the weekend brunch hour, Little Bird does open from 8am and it was the prime opportunity to stop by for breakfast before the café ...

Dessert at Nobu, Perth

There is certainly more to placing down a bet at the Crown these days – there’s food and more importantly dessert! We arrive at the front desk of Nobu without a booking, however, this causes little concern, there is room for us and we are immediately shown to our seats. Our window side table is near the bar and before the dining room, the view overlooking Crown's exclusive pool area is ...

Ice cream Maker Review + Recipe

New to the household is a recently acquired bright lime green ice cream maker! Woohoo! I have being eyeing one for a while now, however, the pots and pans are slowly morphing there way into the linen cupboard and with our small (but cute) kitchen, I am always a little reluctant in bringing home anything new.  How did we end up with an ice cream maker? A couple of weeks ago ...

Morning at Deli Chicchi

Tucked away in the western suburbs neighbourhood of Mt Claremont is Deli Chicchi. We took the opportunity to pop in and enjoy a coffee and snack amidst the daily morning bustle, the cafe is a popular haunt for the residents of the area and with the spacious outdoor seating area, it's not hard to see why. Kids bring along their bicycles and scooters, and the family dog is welcome to sit ...

Koko Black Salon, Claremont

Kick starting the weekend a little earlier we visited the Claremont Koko Black Salon. On a Friday morning, a normally hectic Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre was blissfully peaceful  with the exception of the retail staff preparing the stores for the morning rush. Koko Black had just opened its doors for the day and we were the first ones in, taking our seats on a lounge in the corner. The chocolate cafe always brings ...

Aussie Morning Tea in Shenton Park

This morning spared us a little time between preparing the apartment for new airbnb guests and greeting them on arrival, earlier on we had rushed out the door without a sip of espresso or even a bite of breakfast and now we were a couple of hungry souls needing a swift refuel pit stop. We called in at Lawley’s Bakery located in the lovely tree lined suburb of Shenton Park, a ...
