Smashing breakfast at Asado Bar

From the picket fence, Asado Bar brings an air of casual coolness to Claremont’s Quentin Avenue. The modern restaurant features a number of different spaces from wicker chairs with sinking cushions to high bar seat tables. Light urban industrial and warm wooded tones. If you like a place with emphasis on interior design, this is one to take note of. So, having enjoyed a good breakfast on the last visit, we couldn’t ...

Perth Cycle + Breakfast pizza and Beer

Our plans to cycle along the river were halted not even half way when out of nowhere I experienced some fairly sharp piercing pains to the right side of one of my knees. Arghhh! When it became clear I couldn’t continue cycling we boarded the train for Perth at Canning Bridge, and all the while feeling grateful the section of path we were on, was super close to the Mandurah ...

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 ...

Breakfast by the Beach at The Shorehouse

Given the blissful weather last Saturday morning, we thought it to be a good enough reason to travel towards the west coast for breakfast. When we arrived at Swanbourne Beach the car park was all but full, and as we walked towards The Shorehouse, it was pretty clear this newish restaurant was drawing in a vibrant morning crowd, more than likely with the same idea of enjoying the early summer weather ...

Swanbourne Beach to North Fremantle Cycle + Coffee

Setting out on a morning city cycle we were semi confident we would miss the storm predicted for later in the day,  consequently the much loved Perth Christmas Pageant was cancelled. Ever since the great storm of 2010, storms are taken seriously, but only really occur 50% of the forecasted time. So the weather was pretty good when we woke up, the sun was out and only a faint rustle of the ...

Cycling and breakfast in Cottesloe

Early Sunday morning on our cycling travels, we decided to stop for breakfast at Il Lido. I'm not sure if it's because we are out and about cycling more these days, however, I'm noticing a decent bicycle culture in Perth - both road and off-road. Weekend mornings are especially good around the Freo area and along the coast. It's a scenic cycle along the coast and the road conditions are fairly good. ...

Raw Nachos in Fremantle

Well, 220,000 kms and 10 years later, we upgraded our car and to say the least, it has been a well deserved purchase and I'm super happy. I have a tendency for holding onto things :).  10 years sure does equal a whole heap of electronic advancements in automotion. There is a button for almost everything and seat heaters are a great idea!  To celebrate, we took Tigger (yep it has a name) for a ...

Cheeky Sparrow by day

Cheeky Sparrow is one of my all time favourite small bars in the city, the atmosphere is generally unpretentious and relaxing. Recently, I had an early morning commitment in the city and thought I would take the opportunity to float  by Cheeky Sparrow, hoping it would be a good morning cafe as it is a small bar in the evenings. Opening at 6.30 am, I think I was there just after 7, early ...

Most items are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, raw, paleo, oil free (first time I have seen this one on a menu) and nut free. I am a little intrigued with the menu, ...
