Lot Six Zero

20 October, 2016
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.…

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…

Chinta

Chinta

Don’t you just love those places where as soon as you walk in you are taken worlds away from the busy street outside? Chinta’s outdoor area is an oasis of cooling palms, ponds and shaded day beds. Inside is a shop full of home décor and resort wear  with a café of beautiful teak furniture to settle into for a bite to eat. There’s a prize table inside. All the regulars know it and the first timers wish they were sitting at it. My friend Jess and I…

La Farmacia

La Farmacia

I have been keeping an eye on La Farmacia for while through Instagram and after their opening in March I was keen to pay this new Doubleview café a visit. Driving out towards Scarborough, you can blink and almost miss this place sitting amongst a row of little local shops. Once inside though, it’s easy to forget you are metres away from busy Scarborough Beach Rd. The blue art deco theme is something different to the current trend of mod-industrial…

Increase in Parking Fines in Coastal Suburbs

19 August, 2013
Parking Fines 2

Over the last few months, thousands of parking fines have been dished out to drivers in the suburbs surrounding Scarborough, Swanbourne and South Fremantle. When discovering the parking fines on their windscreens, drivers have been seen muttering a four-letter ‘F word’ under their breath… and then smile… How strange! Well it appears that The Fig Group have been up to their usual antics again! Figgers have been pounding the pavement giving away free coffees and birthday meals at the Fig…

Kinky Swell

Kinky Swell - Mushrooms

 Amongst the backpacker’s hostels in the back blocks of Scarborough is a little group of shops that is home to the Kinky Swell cafe. With a sister cafe in East Perth called Kinky Lizard, these guys are cleverly catering for the different lifestyles of Perth cafe goers. I had been told about Kinky Swell a while ago from a friend and Andy and I were looking for somewhere not too far from home to enjoy breakfast together – this was the perfect place.  We easily got a table outside…

BOHO Espresso

8 January, 2012

Erric and I have been talking about checking out BOHO espresso for the past few weeks and we finally made it today for a Sunday brekky. The cafe is part of the Luna Max shopping complex and it has a massive area to eat outside under the shade which isn’t rammed full of tables. I like that they have left the area spacious enough that you don’t feel like you are forced to listen to the conversation of the table…
