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 ...

10 Cafe Experiences in Perth 2015

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 ...

Lucioli Bar

Wandering through the promenade at Claremont Quarter, we were lured into Lucioli Bar by the sweet display of Italian pastries and cakes. I can be easily distracted in the pursuit of delicious food, especially cakes. The Italian bar and restaurant is a nice addition to Claremont and apart from coffee and food, diners can enjoy an aperitivo or glass of alcohol from the menu. The idea of indulging in a ...

Koko Black Salon, Claremont

Kick starting the weekend a little earlier we visited the Claremont Koko Black Salon. On a Friday morning, a normally hectic Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre was blissfully peaceful  with the exception of the retail staff preparing the stores for the morning rush. Koko Black had just opened its doors for the day and we were the first ones in, taking our seats on a lounge in the corner. The chocolate cafe always brings ...

The Coffee Club, Claremont Quarter

Growing up in the 1990's and when Perth was not so groovy, cafe franchises were a regular place to hang out and especially at the shopping mall. Memories are returning of the cafe inside Myers in Fremantle and Kmart at Kardinya Park. The Coffee Club is an Australian franchise of cafe restaurants, Australia's largest actually. The first store opened in Brisbane in 1989, a successful expansion has resulted in over ...

La Mousse Cafe & Patisserie

I treasure a cafe where one can sit down in peace with no real pressure to rush one's coffee, this would be one of the reasons I frequent La Mousse Cafe & Patisserie in the western suburbs of Mount Claremont. We took advantage of the short sunny period and occupied the outside table in the peaceful surroundings of the community centre. The glass cabinet houses a number of handmade macarons, slices ...

San Churros Northbridge

New to San Churros and part of the 2013 Summer Menu is the Chocolate Fudge Sundae, the ultimate 1990's dessert when at the time in Perth the only dessert cafes around was Baskin Robbins and Gelares! We certainly are spoilt here in Perth now, just look at all the yummy choices! Northbridge San Churros is right next door to the popular Northbridge Piazza in the heart of the nightlife district, it is a big ...

Choux Cafe

Choux Cafe is a cosy and unassuming cafe located on a leafy tree green neighbourhood street in Swanbourne. The French cafe is one of my favourite places in Perth to visit for cake, coffee and croissants. I particularly love that all of the goods are baked in the little kitchen behind the counter using quality ingredients. Croissants made from real butter and not artificial substitutes. Pastisserie cakes made from creme patisserie. Pies, tarts, sausage rolls ...
