Layup

1 February, 2016
Layup Cafe - Breakfast Perth

One my favourite cafes, The Dizzy Witch, closed down last year. My friend Rachael also loved it there and we wondered what would replace it. Thankfully we have not been disappointed with new kid at the courts – Layup. The re-dec looks great… lots of natural light with wood vs black decor and furniture giving the perfect contrast. Coffee is by award winning Blacklist Coffee Roasters and as you can imagine, it makes a very decent cuppa. I really love…

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

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.…

Holly Raye’s

Holly Rayes - Breakfast Perth

Just like Maylands, Bassendean is going through a bit of a renaissance. There’s apartments being built, a small bar set to open any day now and fantastic cafes popping up, with the newest being a little beauty called Holly Raye’s. They opened last week to a loud applause of Instagram and Facebook love. Andy and I visited on Friday and I wasn’t the only person there with a camera. When you have food bloggers there that early, you know this…

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…

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…

Windows on Wygonda

4 September, 2015
Windows on Wygonda - Breakfast Perth

I have become so accustomed to sitting on trendy milk crates and drinking from mason jars, that it’s been a while since I ate breakfast from a table laid with silverware and glistening water glasses on crisp white linen. The last place I expected this to happen was at the Roleystone Country Club. A place where I had spent plenty of nights drinking middies of “super”, smoking and playing pool as an 18 year old. Yep, I am a hills girl.…

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…

Bathers Beach House

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…

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…
