Up Town

23 June, 2016
Up Town - Breakfast Perth

In a place where the breakfast trade reigns supreme, Up Town is a fresh, new addition to Cottesloe’s Napoleon Street. Replacing what was Perth’s very first Dome, brothers Phillip and Anthony Arnold have gone with a simple theme for their cafe. Only a few photos of Brooklyn street dancers decorate the walls and there’s a classic grey and white colour palette in the fit out. The coffee here is exceptional. The roast is from Code Black in Melbourne; a place Phillip previously…

Good Things

Good Things - Coffee - Breakfast Perth

It’s all good at Good Things. This Mosman Park cafe has proven to be a popular addition to a row of suburban shops. Locals walk down with their pooches to take a seat in the alfresco area, parents in their active wear have brekky with the kids and groups of friends gossip over coffee and their smart phones. The interior is minimalistic. A few plants decorate the tables and artwork reading “it’s all good” is painted on the wall. The…

The Little Pantry

The Little Pantry - Breakfast Perth

The Little Pantry has been a popular Shenton Park cafe for a while now. This isn’t my first visit either. My baby is an IVF baby and the clinic is a couple of doors up. I would stop in at Little Pantry for many a coffee and breakfast whilst having blood test after blood test. They kept me sane with good food and coffee. Don’t be fooled by the cosy shop front. There’s a beautiful courtyard at the back with…

May Street Larder

May Street Larder

I think I am the last blogger in Perth to go to May Street Larder. When the crew behind Bib & Tucker  spread their wings, people took notice. As expected, there was loads of hype about this place when it opened over a year ago. My excuse for not going was that I had just had a baby! I look back now and think it would have been much easier to go with a new born who sleeps in a pram,…

Aliment

Aliment - Feature image

Railway Parade in West Leedy is fast becoming the go to place for breakfast in Perth. Week days see places like Aliment filled with workers getting their morning coffee or having a meeting over breakfast. Weekends attract the punters who know which meal is best enjoyed out with friends. Often cafes at the bottom of an office block tend to have a sterile feel to them. Aliment has managed to avoid this by having warm lights, hanging vines and a…

Cecchi’s

31 March, 2016
Cecchis - Breakfast Perth

In an old heritage house on Beaufort street is not another antique shop, but a restaurant that will change how you view Italian restaurants. Cecchi’s is owned and run by young husband and wife team Mark and Kylee-Anne Cecchi. Mark, the head chef, comes from a family of restaurant owners beginning his career at his parents Mt Lawley restaurant Savini’s. Along with Kylee, a year spent in Italy helped Mark get back to his culinary roots and it really comes…

Odyssea

Odyssea - Breakfast Perth

I have been following the development of this brand new beach side cafe on Instagram for a while now; waiting with bated breath for it’s opening. How could I not be excited about a cafe being opened by the previous owners of the Angove Street favourite – Metrio & Co! City Beach has been transformed by the opening of Odyssea. A restaurant as beautiful as the beach, with plenty of seating inside and even more outside. They know people want…

Nash & Co

Nash & Co - Breakfast Perth

Just when I thought Whatley Crescent in Maylands couldn’t get any better, Nash & Co went and opened late last year… and they are really offering something a little different in the realm of breakfast. It doesn’t look very big from the front but the cafe extends all the way back with separate rooms set up with tables and couches. This was perfect with a baby; my friend Devo (aka the best Wedding DJ in Perth) and I set up…

Millpoint Caffe Bookshop

Millpoint Caffe - Breakfast Perth

I’ve reviewed a cafe in a travel agency but what about a cafe in a bookshop? Or is it a bookshop in a cafe? Either way, MillPoint Caffe Bookshop is inspired. I love browsing books and taking note of what I will read next or what I could give as a gift to a friend. With the increase of people reading e-books, shops like this are sadly becoming few and far between. What a great way to get people in – combining…

Layup

1 February, 2016
Layup Cafe - Breakfast Perth

One my favourite cafes, The Dizzy Witch, closed down last year. My friend Rachael also loved it there and we wondered what would replace it. Thankfully we have not been disappointed with new kid at the courts – Layup. The re-dec looks great… lots of natural light with wood vs black decor and furniture giving the perfect contrast. Coffee is by award winning Blacklist Coffee Roasters and as you can imagine, it makes a very decent cuppa. I really love…
