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…

Odyssea

17 March, 2016
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…

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.…

Getting Under the Skin of the Peel Region

2 December, 2015
Mandurah

Recently I was invited down to the Peel Region by The City of Mandurah and Visit Peel to experience what the area has to offer as a food and wine destination. As the Official Digital Media Influencer for the region in the Buy West Eat Best WA Signature Dish competition (for which they won the People’s Choice award!), I was keen to get to know the region that had so much to offer AND was only about an hour away…

The Sandbar

The Sandbar - Breakfast Perth

The sun is shining and there’s a light warm breeze blowing that lets us know that summer is right around the corner. It’s the perfect morning to forgo the cardy, chuck on a pair of thongs and head to the coast for breakfast. Cottesloe would usually be my go to on such a glorious morning but it was time I stopped overlooking Cott’s northern rival – Scarborough. Until the last few years, the strip along Scarborough beach has been kind…

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…

The Shipping Lane

16 January, 2015
The Shipping Lane Outside

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 towering apartments one can only hope to ever afford. The benefit to this development is the opening of nosheries that take advantage of the view and serve more than hot…

Bluewaters Cafe

7 November, 2014
Blue Waters

It’s a lot of pressure picking a breakfast place for a catch up with friends when you do this job. You want to impress them with your choice; show them that you know what’s good in Perth for the morning meal. I picked Bluewaters Cafe for a morning out with hubby and friend Belinda after looking at their website and seeing pictures of tables with white table cloths and a plethora of awards and accolades. They were a finalist in 2013…

Bib and Tucker

23 October, 2014
Bib&Tucker

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 bushrangers? I had promised my mate Ben that we would go to Bib and Tucker together and we had the perfect excuse for a group brekky  – to meet his…

Clancy’s Fishbar Cafe – City Beach

3 January, 2014
Clancys City Beach

We’ve all heard of Clancy’s Fish Pub – if you haven’t then you need to come out from under the rock you’ve been living under for the past 15 years… or maybe it was because I was a Murdoch Uni student hanging at Clancy’s on Canning Bridge ALL the time that this place is old news to me. What was news to me was that the City Beach Clancy’s has a cafe on the side serving breakfast overlooking one of…
