Sage

13 September, 2017
Sage Cafe - Breakfast Perth

Vic Park has a new addition and it’s a pearler. Sage Cafe, located behind the old post office, is already wow’ing customers with its breakfast offering and slick interior design. Polished concrete and wood finishing blended with brass and rose gold make for an inviting space. The chestnut leather bucket chairs are comfy. I had almost forgotten what it is like to sit on nice chairs at breakfast with so many cafes now having metal chairs!  Coffee is supplied by Freo’s Port…

The Wild Fig

5 August, 2017
The Wild Fig - Breakfast Perth

The Wild Fig were are the forefront of beachside breakfast dining before Perth even knew what smashed avocado was. Originally located on West Coast Drive, they moved to the Esplanade on the Scarborough foreshore some years ago. They have always been one of the area’s most popular cafes but the Scarborough redevelopment is making times tough. Businesses understand that the redevelopment will bring many more people to the area once completed, but at the moment factors such as lack of…

Slate Cafe- Breakfast Perth

Slate Cafe is the Swan Valley’s newest addition and it’s offering something truly different to anywhere else in Perth. They have a playground for the kids AND the fur kids. At the back of the cafe is a massive grassed area with both a nature play area and indoor playroom for the kiddies. There is a fenced off area for the dogs to run free, although many owners enjoy having their pooches sit next to their table. There is plenty…

The Shorehouse

4 January, 2016
The Shorehouse - Breakfast Perth

Mentioning “Swanbourne Beach” in conversation will usually bring about smirks and giggles from Perthians who associate this beach with those who like to get a true all over body tan. But as I once discovered, “that part” of the beach is a bit of a walk from the view you’ll get at Perth’s hottest summer venue –  The Shorehouse. With white washed wooden furniture, yellow striped umbrellas and colour coordinated scatter cushions – it’s the Hamptons right there on Swanbourne beach.…

The Little Shop of Plenty

The Little Shop of Plenty - Breakfast Perth

There are so many cafes serving fanciful breakfasts with things like slabs of bacon, fried chicken, waffles piled high with sweet adornments and don’t even get me started on the ridiculous milkshakes in mason jars trend. Whilst this stuff sure is Instagram worthy, where you’re going to get plenty of those emoticons with the love hearts for eyes as comments, it is nice to be able to go somewhere for the most important meal of the day and not leave feeling like you…

Bathers Beach House

13 July, 2015
Bathers Beach House - Breakfast Perth

I have never heard of a maccas closing down until it happened in our own port city. The glow from the golden arches cast a romantic light over Bathers Beach for young lovers necking after smashing some illusions shakers at Zanzibar, or Harbourside… or whatever it was called last.  Thankfully what has replaced it is much more snazzy than a mickey D’s! Bathers Beach House opened late last year and has offered Freo goers a place to eat, drink and be…

Oakover Grounds

26 June, 2015
Perth Breakfast

Imagine sitting there for breakfast with the sun shining through the vines onto the verandah of the restaurant. The small lake sparkles under the morning light and a wood fire is keeping you warm whilst the smell of fresh roasted coffee wafts past your nose. Sounds like the perfect winter morning out for breakfast doesn’t it? Where is this magical place… well… it’s been in the Swan Valley for a while but it’s had a make over. Oakover winery has shed…

Feast Cafe

13 June, 2015
Feast

I promised myself that after I had my baby, I wouldn’t become a “mummy blogger”. I didn’t want to make my reviews all about how it was so rude that a tiny, trendy cafe wouldn’t fit my ginormous pram or how it was daylight robbery that I had to pay for a babycino when I ordered a herbal tea for myself. But I was worried. Would I now be confined to shopping centre cafes because of my new mummy status? After…
