Toastface Grillah, revisit

Winter in Perth has me craving cheese and bread and what better way to satisfy this want than visiting a place that has eight different styles of grilled cheese toasties! Toastface Grillah is a small cafe concealed rather well in the Grand Lane (cnr of Wellington and Barrack street) of Perth.

Bocelli’s Espresso

A sequence of events unfolded this morning and we found ourselves unexpectedly lining up at Bocelli's Espresso not for an espresso but for some food. Bocelli's Espresso was voted this year as the best place for coffee, it wasn't to be this morning and I will take everyone's word that the coffee is pretty good. It would explain the line of people waiting for their takeaway orders. Location wise Bocelli's Espresso ...

Macarons and Coffee

A combination worthy of my consumption. Today's choice of coffee break was in the city at Jean Pierre Sancho on Hay Street. The good thing about this place is that it does not close early in the afternoon so it is possible to grab a coffee after 3.00pm! The macaron flavors we selected were passionfruit, Moet Champagne and hazelnut. The macarons were okay, they were fairly chewy and it was difficult to taste the flavors. ...
