Wonderful chaos at Yelo

Well, winter officially arrived into Perth last weekend and thus begins the season for coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever hot drink warms your belly! It’s also the season of stews, goulash, minestrone soup and beef bourguignon. My favourite season and let’s also not forget about the warm apple crumble! Wanting to enjoy the winter sun, we headed to the beach side cafe Yelo in Trigg for coffee and a sweet treat. ...

An oldie but a goodie, The Blue Duck

The weeks are flying on by and with Saturday afternoon destined to slip away to work commitments, we decided to enjoy a big breakfast away from home together. It’s been a while since we've had breakfast at The Blue Duck and noticing the menu has changed with a couple of new choices, was the ultimate lure.  I really appreciate mornings by the beach, the crisp autumn air and low light over the beautiful blue ...

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 ...

Ocean Views at Bib & Tucker

Beginning a morning at the beach is a must do in Perth, and anywhere along the coast will do. This Good Friday holiday we headed to Leighton beach for an early (for a public holiday anyhow) morning breakfast at Bib & Tucker.  Most places tend to close on Good Friday, however, this year there were plenty open around town and with an instagram account it was an effortless task in finding choices for ...

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 ...

Solomon’s Cafe, Highgate

I have recently discovered the deliciousness of Elmar’s bratwurst sausages and a special trip to the Beaufort Street shop was the perfect excuse to stop in at one of the cafes nearby. I was drawn into Solomon's Café by its small cosy appearance, dimly lit lights and exposed brickwork. Hanging framed portraits of coffee was duly another reason to pop in. I love my coffee! I placed my order at the counter, a short ...

Bread in Common; Duck FAT Potatoes in Fremantle

Every so often, Dad and I meet over a cup of coffee. I love taking him to new places and he's always keen to step out of the zone of familiarity and comfort which is great. Today it was Bread in Common, a cafe and bakery on Pakenham Street in Fremantle. Bread in Common, with its cleverly constructed herb and vegetable garden on the front paving brightens up the streetscape. Like an oasis ...

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 ...

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 ...

Brioche and coffee from Il Lido

I love summer mornings by the beach. It's the encouraging start to the morning that helps kick start a difficult day ahead. Sitting at a cafe sipping on coffee by the ocean, followed by a walk on the cool sand or vice versa is definately the more relaxed start we all need every now and then.  And, with the abundances of pristine beaches in Perth, it's never hard to find a cafe nearby. The Italian espresso bar, Il Lido ...
