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 ...

Fresh quality coffee beans and ...

Vans Cottesloe + Cycle around Perth’s Swan River

Vans Cottesloe opens when the sun is barely up and not even a mouse stirs on Napoleon Street. It's a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this doesn't surprise me because my fingers were hurting from the chill. Comfy inside and sitting by the beautiful ...

Good Things Cafe, Mosman Park

A wonderful stop at Good Things Cafe on Saturday morning offset some of the chill we were experiencing on the bikes from the early winter weather. It's still Autumn in Perth, however it definitely felt like a winter's morning. We warmed up over a strong long black and pot of chamomile tea (because honestly it's been way too much coffee for me lately). We also shared a remarkable lamington and delicious ...
