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 ...

Warming meals from Red Chair Cafe

Following a Saturday cycle we decide to detour to the Red Chair in Subiaco for an early lunch. Amidst the flurry of weekend grocery shoppers at Crossways Shopping Centre, the Red Chair Café offers a full breakfast menu, cakes, salads, gourmet rolls and some delicious authentic Asian dishes – all made at the cafe too. We were borderline famished and looking forward to a big warming meal to tide us over ...

American Sports Bar in Perth

Catching up with a friend Wednesday night, we dined at Varsity Bar, an all American sports bar a few kilometres out of Perth’s CBD. It’s located in a dated small shopping centre along Broadway Ave in Nedlands. It’s not visible from the street and if you've never been before, let me direct you to walk towards the basement area and in the direction of the music. There’s parking on the ...

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 ...

Perth Cycle + Breakfast pizza and Beer

Our plans to cycle along the river were halted not even half way when out of nowhere I experienced some fairly sharp piercing pains to the right side of one of my knees. Arghhh! When it became clear I couldn’t continue cycling we boarded the train for Perth at Canning Bridge, and all the while feeling grateful the section of path we were on, was super close to the Mandurah ...

Barking Cow in Bridgetown

Finishing our 3 day ride along the Munda Biddi trail and 71km behind us, we were talking about a nice big meal and barista made coffee when we rolled into Donnelly River Village.  After we unpacked the bikes and trailers we made our way to the nearby town of Bridgetown, wandering along the main strip in search for a place to eat.  Barking Cow Café looked inviting and the name sparked some ...

Raw Nachos in Fremantle

Well, 220,000 kms and 10 years later, we upgraded our car and to say the least, it has been a well deserved purchase and I'm super happy. I have a tendency for holding onto things :).  10 years sure does equal a whole heap of electronic advancements in automotion. There is a button for almost everything and seat heaters are a great idea!  To celebrate, we took Tigger (yep it has a name) for a ...
