Barque

10 August, 2016
Barque - Breakfast Perth

Recently I was invited to try the breakfast at Barque in East Freo. This little pocket around George Street is bursting with some great eateries! Barque is located down the end of the street and has a great set up. There is a huge outside dining area with distressed timber furniture and loads of cushions for comfort. Plenty of shade means dining outside in summer won’t equal third degree burns. Inside is a little smaller, but the heavy timber theme continues with comfy…

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,…

Hopscotch Bar

Hopscotch Bar - Breakfast Perth

When I was pregnant people would ask me “what have you been craving?” and my answer was always “dirty martinis”. This response was usually met with nervous laugher.. “is she joking? Has she been drinking mother’s ruin whilst pregnant?” Of course I hadn’t, but my next dirty martini consumed my thoughts and it was only made worse when my sister told me about the best martini she had ever had from a small bar in South Perth called Hopscotch. She promised…

The Shorehouse

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.…

Hermosa Cantina

Hermosa Cantina - Breakfast Perth

If you haven’t heard of hugely popular North Beach cafe – Tropico, then I am sorry to say that you must have been living under a rock! Not content with one successful cafe, the owners decided to open Hermosa Cantina – a Spanish influenced restaurant in the well heeled suburb of Wembley. Having the same owners is where the similarities end. Tropico is fresh and bright with a menu to match, where as Hermosa is  handsome and classy with a menu that…

Swallow Bar

Swallow Bar - Breakfast Perth

What images does the word “brunch” conjure up for you? Is it your mum wearing a brunch coat around the house on the weekends or is it the joy of moseying on down for a meal after a sleep in that would make every new mother on the planet jealous? Whatever it is, no one can deny that this is the most indulgent of the meals. Imagine my delight when fellow blogger Casey from Travelling Corkscrew alerted me to the news…

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

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…

The Old Laundry

The Old Laundry

It’s been a while since anything on Angove Street has piqued my interest. I’ve been to all the cafe’s, I’ve raged at the Rosie but I just feel that generally North Perth is old, tired and boring (ok.. the new beer garden at the Rose is pretty impressive). Hordes of people still flock to the area for breakfast at their old fave but I’m always on the hunt for something new.. and it doesn’t get any newer than The Old…

London Cafe & Bar

27 March, 2015
London Cafe

I married an Englishman and despite me being from the colony and him from the mother land, there is a huge cultural difference between us. For one, he doesn’t understand fairy bread. Andy used to live north of Joondalup and this is where I got a real cultural shock. I had no idea that these far northern suburbs were so popular with UK expats and I found things like “The English Shop” as confusing as “The Walkabout” pub in London. I have…
