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.

Following a clean and prep routine for our next Airbnb guests we walked into the city to kill some time before their arrival. Perth's west end contains a good variety of establishments nowadays, a little something for everyone.

Country ...

Domain on Loch sits on a corner street in neighbourhood surroundings, the cafe is housed in a restored character home typical to the Claremont area. I was initially drawn ...
