The Otherside Cafe, Swanbourne

Located om Railway Street along the Fremantle train line and bicycle path, The Otherside Cafe is often a place we stop through on the morning cycle to Fremantle. More specifically it's located on the other side of Swanbourne train station and accessible via the small Claremont Crescent bridge. A tiny cafe but certainly a great one for coffee, one of our favourite spots for long black coffee in Perth. We enjoy sitting on ...

Best Long Black Coffee in Perth

Earlier this year I switched to drinking long black coffee. This style of coffee is an espresso poured on top of the water, filling a cup. Yes, it’s long and it’s black. I love it. Enjoying a strong bodied long black in cafes can be a hit and miss around Perth. Milk tends to be helpful at masking bitter or over extracted beans by sweetening the overall taste. Fresh quality coffee beans and ...

Vans Cottesloe + Cycle around Perth’s Swan River

Vans Cottesloe opens when the sun is barely up and not even a mouse stirs on Napoleon Street. It's a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this doesn't surprise me because my fingers were hurting from the chill. Comfy inside and sitting by the beautiful ...

Breakfast at The Shipping Lane, North Fremante

I feel a good majority of my posts on this blog mention the words– ‘today was a beautiful sunny warm day of clear blue skies.’ Anyone not living in Perth might find this difficult to believe. Aside from my fascination with the weather, Perth truly is the sunny state and today was much the same, even better because we had an enjoyable breakfast at the breezy beach cafe, The Shipping ...

Smashing breakfast at Asado Bar

From the picket fence, Asado Bar brings an air of casual coolness to Claremont’s Quentin Avenue. The modern restaurant features a number of different spaces from wicker chairs with sinking cushions to high bar seat tables. Light urban industrial and warm wooded tones. If you like a place with emphasis on interior design, this is one to take note of. So, having enjoyed a good breakfast on the last visit, we couldn’t ...

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 ...

Cycling and breakfast in Cottesloe

Early Sunday morning on our cycling travels, we decided to stop for breakfast at Il Lido. I'm not sure if it's because we are out and about cycling more these days, however, I'm noticing a decent bicycle culture in Perth - both road and off-road. Weekend mornings are especially good around the Freo area and along the coast. It's a scenic cycle along the coast and the road conditions are fairly good. ...

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 ...
