Mount Street Breakfast Bar

When someone with the surname “Hollywood” recommends a place to eat, I listen. He asked me if I wanted a “scoop” and told me about a place called  “Mount Street Breakfast Bar” that was under new management in the same spot that has really had nothing going for it since Bouchard... more

There was a period of time in Perth when giving venues an avian name was hotter than pulled pork. There is Cheeky Sparrow, The Old Crow, The Aviary, Swallow Bar, the list goes on and then in swoops a little Vic Park cafe on the tail end of this trend... more

When a friend suggests going out for a catchup over breakfast I try to put the decision making back on them. “Where do you want to go?” is usually met with a reply of “I don’t mind – you know where’s best”. Or in the case of my friend Belinda,... more

Remember when Leighton Beach used to be the next crappy car park up from Port Beach? It has looked a bit more flash than that for a while now but I still feel like it is a foreign place when I drive around the windy roads with manicured gardens and... more

I used to joke that one day I wanted to get to that point of relaxation on holidays where I didn’t know what day it was. That did happen to me once… when I got made redundant. It wasn’t really the kind of relaxation I had hoped for but I... more
