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…

Lot Six Zero

Lot Six Zero - Breakfast Perth

Me: “Hey Sarah, want to go for breakfast on Saturday?” Sarah: “Yeah ok, but I want pancakes.” Me: “…” Right. So as most of you know my sister has coeliacs disease and her craving request gave me the fear.  Where the f*** was I going to find good gluten free pancakes that didn’t resemble a dish sponge. I asked the people who know best – you guys! I was told Lot Six Zero had the best gluten free pancakes in Perth.…

Aliment

Aliment - Feature image

Railway Parade in West Leedy is fast becoming the go to place for breakfast in Perth. Week days see places like Aliment filled with workers getting their morning coffee or having a meeting over breakfast. Weekends attract the punters who know which meal is best enjoyed out with friends. Often cafes at the bottom of an office block tend to have a sterile feel to them. Aliment has managed to avoid this by having warm lights, hanging vines and a…

Odyssea

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…

Oxford Yard

Oxford Yard - Breakfast Perth

Leederville’s cafe scene probably attracts just as many cyclists as some of the coastal cafes. It’s easy to see why – the cafes have outdoor tables with lots of space to park bikes and keep and eye on them. Oxford Yard is one such Leedy cafe that is popular with the cyclists as well as the Lorna Jane wearing yummy mummies of Perth. I met up with friends Rachael and Marie on this morning and seeing everyone in their cycling lycra…

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…

Tropico

I know I go on and on about this,  but it’s been a while since a noteworthy cafe has opened up around the northern beaches. Bar a few, why is a popular tourist area so void of top quality cafes? Well a new addition has started to restore my faith in the area. Set back off the West Coast Drive strip, Tropico has made the small shopping precinct on Flora Terrace a place that locals can no longer keep to…

Flinderz

If you have been a long time follower of mine, you will know my opinion on the cafes in the northern suburbs. For those who have just joined me – I think the ones worth visiting are few and far between once you get past Scarborough. BUT I have found one to add to the “worth visiting” list – Flinderz at Hillarys Shopping Centre. Now stay with me here… yes it is at a shopping centre but it’s a small…

Ingredient Tree

Ingredient Tree

Andy was home from site and it’s time for me to have some R&R from making decisions. I hand him my growing list of cafe’s to visit for breakfast in Perth and ask him to pick. He doesn’t just randomly choose, he spends time checking the websites, reading menus and finally offers a suggestion – “what about Ingredient Tree?” Ingredient Tree is an old Wembley fave and it’s easy to see why. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the…
