A fancy New Years at Terrace Hotel

Our New Year celebrations have been fairly low key for the past couple of years. Last year we hiked, watched a documentary about Phillippe Petit, the man who tightrope walked the north and south towers of the World Trade Center (unbelievable!),  and fell asleep before midnight somewhere in the country town of Bridgetown. It was bliss. Having said that, feeling that 2015 was particularly harder than most, we decided to treat ...

CocoWhip at Nature’s Harvest

On the way to the beach one weekend we stopped by Nature's Harvest for a coffee, and to try CocoWhip.

There are a couple of options on the menu for the coconut water based ice cream, and we select the tiramisu to share, thinking it’ll go perfectly ...

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 ...

Ocean Views at Bib & Tucker

Beginning a morning at the beach is a must do in Perth, and anywhere along the coast will do. This Good Friday holiday we headed to Leighton beach for an early (for a public holiday anyhow) morning breakfast at Bib & Tucker.  Most places tend to close on Good Friday, however, this year there were plenty open around town and with an instagram account it was an effortless task in finding choices for ...

Having a merry of a time at The Merrywell

By the end of the week and following a day of trekking back and forth around town in sweltering weather, 38C, I was definitely thinking about a nice, ice cold beverage when Friday drew to a slow close.  Derek and I decided to treat ourselves and visit The Merrywell pub located within the Crown, just outside of Perth city. As we wandered into the Merrywell, we were pleasantly surprised to find we had our ...

Koko Black Salon, Claremont

Kick starting the weekend a little earlier we visited the Claremont Koko Black Salon. On a Friday morning, a normally hectic Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre was blissfully peaceful  with the exception of the retail staff preparing the stores for the morning rush. Koko Black had just opened its doors for the day and we were the first ones in, taking our seats on a lounge in the corner. The chocolate cafe always brings ...

If you take the entrance from Finnerty Street you will walk through an archway consumed in ...

Brunch at Deli Chicchi

On a typical sunny day in Perth there is no better way to enjoy it than a long brisk walk ended by brunch at the corner neighbourhood cafe, Deli Chicchi. After the morning rush which occurs every day of the week, the cafe has a relaxing atmosphere where you can pull out the laptop or even a book. You could even grab a magazine from the newsagent next door! We ordered ...
