La Mousse Cafe & Patisserie

I treasure a cafe where one can sit down in peace with no real pressure to rush one's coffee, this would be one of the reasons I frequent La Mousse Cafe & Patisserie in the western suburbs of Mount Claremont. We took advantage of the short sunny period and occupied the outside table in the peaceful surroundings of the community centre. The glass cabinet houses a number of handmade macarons, slices ...

Joining the Sunday breakfast crowd in Perth, we ventured out to a Floreat cafe called Fortysevenkirwanstreet. Sunday breakfast, I sure have missed you! The cafe  is a short drive from Subiaco and one of those places that unless you are regularly in the area you would never know it existed. The neighbourhood cafe surrounded by residential homes brings life to the small shopping strip. When we pulled up to the cafe  it was absolutely ...

Pastisserie cakes made from creme patisserie. Pies, tarts, sausage rolls ...
