Sugo is great at Tommy Sugo

This wintery evening we stopped in at Tommy Sugo, a pop up store located at Stimulatte Café in Subiaco. Pop up, meaning the coffee centric café transforms into a pasta serving eatery in the evenings from 5pm. It's a cool concept and the name is somewhat catchy too. Fresh pasta and great ingredients combined with an Italian heritage are three standouts from Tommy Sugo’s story and philosophy. Worth a read if you are interested ...

Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant

There is something undeniably festive about gathering around German food and jugs of beer. For a friend's birthday on Saturday night just gone, a group of us spent the evening at the fairly new, Brotzeit German Bier Bar and Restaurant for a mighty or should I say, meaty feast! Brotzeit is located in 140 Perth,  a snazzy building development above the Perth underground train station. Various art installations decorate the lanes that intersect and ...

German evenings at The Rhein Donau Club

Celebrating a friend's birthday, a group of us spent a Saturday evening at the Rhein Donau Club in Myaree. The interior of the club is very much old school European and I doubt much has changed since it opened in 1959. Features of wood constructed booths, lanterns and alpine trimmings add to the European charm.  I notice an emblem carved into the dining chairs. Being non club members we paid a small ...

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 ...

Swiss Cakes from Francois in Leederville

Francois is a Swiss Patisserie located in Leederville, a few metres from the lively Oxford street.  The patisserie has been around since 1998 serving sweet patisserie cakes, coffee and sandwiches. They also offer catering for events. The passionfruit and chocolate mousse caught my eye. The rich chocolate mousse was encased in a light fluffy almond sponge and on top was a layer of passion fruit mousse with two small pieces of fruit.  In one mouthful ...

For the moment though we head to a neighbourhood French patisserie known as Choux Cafe. We managed to secure a table inside and ordered our regular coffees and cakes at the counter. There was a new cake (photo above) in the glass cabinet of which I apologise, ...

The West Leederville store is situated in ...

Sweetness at Choux Cafe

I would imagine living so close to this little French patisserie one could smell the pastries and breads baking away in the rear kitchen every morning. Choux Cafe make all of their scrummy goods in the cafe. Each time I try to taste something different even if I may not be entirely convinced of the combinations, like the strawberry and basil macaron. I am always pleasantly surprised with the combination of such unusual flavours ...
