San Churro Chocolatier in Subiaco

I took my parents on an expedition to the Spanish San Churro Chocolatier in Subiaco last weekend to try their very first Churro. It is not very often I can introduce something totally new to my parents, they tend to stick to the comforts of what they know. The affogato arrives to the table beautifully presented. The shot of espresso in one cup and a scoop of ice cream in the other. ...

Milkd, Subiaco

Milkd is off the beaten track in Subiaco on Denis Street, a few metres from the shops along Rokeby Road. The cafe is perfectly set up to sit for a while, seating outside and inside.

Coffee Coffee!!  Our sole reason for stopping and it was fantastic, I might even go a step ...

Working Lunch from Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie

Working in a bit of chaos this morning my lunch break was very rushed and I popped into Chez Jean-Claude Patisserie for their sandwich rolls. I highly recommend the char grilled chicken roll. The bread is crispy and thin, just how I like it. Chez Jean Claude serve a great sandwich in Perth! It helps that they make the bread onsite in their tiny patisserie shop. The bread is perfect, its taste unbelievable. The thin ...

Gelare Subiaco

Gelare ice cream is something I have been eating since my high school days! I could say that I know it quite well. Half price Tuesdays and late night waffles from the Fremantle store behind the cappuccino strip was my first introduction to the creamy icecream and deliciously toasted waffles. The Subiaco shop is located on Rokeby Road a few doors down from the Regal Theatre. My favourite choice at Gelare ...
