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.…

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…

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…

Fiorentina

Fiorentina - Breakfast Perth

A drive down Angove Street in North Perth on any day of the week will leave you wondering if you’re missing out on the best breakfast in Perth. People almost spill out onto the street sitting on tables that push the limits of the boundaries, parking is at a premium and even the dogs are jostling for space at the tables.  It’s like North Perth’s version of Freo’s cappuccino strip. Fiorentina Patisserie and Cafe sits perched on the top corner of…

Finlay & Sons no 917

8 August, 2015
Finlay & Sons - Breakfast Perth

When was the last time you went to a cafe where every single staff member you encountered genuinely smiled at you? For me, it was last Friday when I visited Beaufort street’s newest addition – Finlay & Sons no 917. Besides the super friendly staff, it has all the hallmarks of a successful cafe – exposed brick, filament lights, a large communal table and instagram worthy bits and bobs on the table that make for the perfect styled food shots. But…

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…

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…

Sprolo

Sprolo

A cafe on busy Canning Highway can be anything but relaxed and enjoyable right? With upbeat jazz bouncing out of the speakers and the wooshes and banging of top quality coffee being made – Sprolo takes you away from the cars crawling by only metres from the door. The seating seems to be about saving space, with metal stools being the go. There are a couple of couches at the window if you are lucky enough to nab them, tables…
