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. ...

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!

All the foods are handmade every day at the Cafe and I definitely ...
