Again and again I am left disappointed with restaurants on the beach. I end up leaving thinking “well all I really paid for was the view because the food was rubbish”. What was I going to get at one of Freo’s most talked about restaurants named after a couple of scallywag...

Chinta
Don’t you just love those places where as soon as you walk in you are taken worlds away from the busy street outside? Chinta’s outdoor area is an oasis of cooling palms, ponds and shaded day beds. Inside is a shop full of home décor and resort wear  with a café of beautiful teak furniture to settle...

My husband and I have just come back from the most incredible weekend away at Jalbrook Cottages in Balingup – a lovely wedding present from work colleagues. It has a 100% rating on Trip Advisor, which we all know is as rare as a stylish mullet. But what’s not to...

Domain on Loch
When you picture a cafe in Nedlands, what do you see? Is it the mums of the golden triangle sitting around sipping their cappuccinos in the latest Lulu Lemon active wear? Well you won’t see this at Domain on Loch… well on the weekends at least. There is zero pretentiousness...

Kettle Cafe
Kettle Cafe has been Lathlain’s little secret for a while now. With new owners at the helm of this corner cafe, I was interested to see if it was still as good as it was when I first visited about a year ago. I hate seeing a cafe ride on...

The Office2
“The Office on Harrogate” – is it just me or does the name sound like it belongs in London somewhere? I know when I first saw it on Instragram I had to ask “is this in Perth?”.. well it is, in West Leederville in fact. It is in that weird...

So here are Andy and I, sitting outside Noranda Palms shopping centre at 7.55am. We’re still in the car of course… not like the people who stand as close as they can to the automatic doors so they can be FIRST inside at 8am. We’re nothing like them, OK guys?...

The Attic 1
There are parts of Fremantle that are frozen in time and I’m not talking about from when the convicts were hanging out on High Street. Walking down the cappuccino strip is the same now as it was 20 years ago. It makes me roll my eyes and think “really? How...

Cicada Villas
Bali – is it no longer the cheap tropical get away it used to be? Yes we get cheap flights and if you choose – cheap accommodation but what about the food and drink? Back in April I was on my honeymoon in Bali (I know right – someone wanted to...
