Sweet Potato, Beetroot Brownie at Nature’s Harvest

Located on Napoleon Street and in the heart of Cottesloe's shopping area is Nature's Harvest, a combined café and health product store. Nature's Harvest offer fair trade coffee, a good variety of raw desserts, salads, warm bean bowels and juices. 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, ...

Breakfast in an old bus garage at Propeller

Rising somewhat at an early hour, well for a Sunday morning that is, we made our way to Propeller in North Fremantle for breakfast and a much wanted coffee. Propeller opens from 7.00am which is great as most places tend to open later on the weekends. It was also nice to get in before the Sunday brunch crowd. If you have driven along the coast to Fremantle, chances are, you have passed ...

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 ...

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 ...
