Joining the Sunday breakfast crowd in Perth, we ventured out to a Floreat cafe called Fortysevenkirwanstreet. Sunday breakfast, I sure have missed you!

The neighbourhood cafe surrounded by residential homes brings life to the small shopping strip. When we pulled up to the cafe  it was absolutely ...
