Early Morning Cafes around Perth

Rise and shine my fellow coffee drinkers, sharing with you more than a few cafes for the morning cup of wake me up and make this day awesome! I would have to say, Perth's cafe scene is a wonderful haven of double shot long black and creamy milk lattes set in some iconic locations like by the beach, in the park or a funky warehouse. We always enjoy a cafe in ...

Best Long Black Coffee in Perth

Earlier this year I switched to drinking long black coffee. This style of coffee is an espresso poured on top of the water, filling a cup. Yes, it’s long and it’s black. I love it. Enjoying a strong bodied long black in cafes can be a hit and miss around Perth. Milk tends to be helpful at masking bitter or over extracted beans by sweetening the overall taste. Fresh quality coffee beans and ...

Pixel Coffee, Leederville

I really need to visit Leederville more often because it seems this neighborhood is alive with activity and plenty of cafe choices to sit and enjoy a coffee. Located near the Italian deli Re-Store  is a quaint little cafe called Pixel Coffee. It's a popular haunt for locals and those that see the lovely looking photos through social media. I am the latter, and when I found myself in Leederville for an ...

Coffee and Cake by the sea, City Beach

Located on the City Beach foreshore, Odyssea beach café is a scenic spot for an espresso. Monday mid-morning, the unexpected small queue isn’t an issue as there’s a two seat bar table on the alfresco decking area available, and with only the two of us we’re in luck today! On the way to the table we notice a cake and pastry table, and take a quick photo in passing, it's a good ...

Breakfast at The Shipping Lane, North Fremante

I feel a good majority of my posts on this blog mention the words– ‘today was a beautiful sunny warm day of clear blue skies.’ Anyone not living in Perth might find this difficult to believe. Aside from my fascination with the weather, Perth truly is the sunny state and today was much the same, even better because we had an enjoyable breakfast at the breezy beach cafe, The Shipping ...

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 ...

Cheap breakfast in Cottesloe

C Blu restaurant, part of Ocean Beach Hotel (or as most know it ‘the OBH’) runs a $10.00 breakfast special all day long, and located across the road from the beach is superb for extending a morning in Perth’s beach neighbourhood of Cottesloe. In my early 20’s the OBH was a place for a sneaky drink or two and while it's still very much that popular place, these days I do ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
