Star Swamp Reserve, Western Australia

Escaping a weekend overthrown by some repetitive and boring book keeping, we hopped in the car late on Sunday afternoon for a drive along the ocean coast to Star Swamp Reserve. Located in the northern suburbs of North Beach and Watermans Bay, the reserve of close to 100 acres was sectioned off many years ago and placed under conservation as a Bush forever site. It essentially showcases the types of trees and ...

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 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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

Morning walk and lunch at Choux Cafe

Well, it's official, I am on holidays! Working through Christmas and New Year last year in a retail store, I am really going to cherish my time off. I admire retail sales assistants, it's a crazy job during the festive season but rewarding for the company's balance sheet. This year I am looking forward to baking dessert for the family on Christmas day, something I couldn't do last year. I ...

Coffee at Clancy’s Fish Bar at City Beach

Adjoining Clancy's Fish Bar and also apart of the Clancy's name is a small beach shack cafe over looking one of Perth's pristine beaches, City Beach.

Lake Espresso, Claremont

Where in Claremont can you sip a hot coffee with a scenic and peaceful view? We may have found the perfect little place at the Lake Claremont Golf Course called Lake Espresso. The location is indeed somewhat hidden from the street when turning off Davies Road. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the Claremont train station. We ordered a couple of cappuccinos and a brekky wrap. Lake Espresso offer a super ...

Brunch at Deli Chicchi

On a typical sunny day in Perth there is no better way to enjoy it than a long brisk walk ended by brunch at the corner neighbourhood cafe, Deli Chicchi. After the morning rush which occurs every day of the week, the cafe has a relaxing atmosphere where you can pull out the laptop or even a book. You could even grab a magazine from the newsagent next door! We ordered ...
