Padbury’s

Padbury's - Breakfast Perth

Padbury's has been a Guildford fixture for years but underwent a renovation last year to polish up the beautiful floor boards, add a breakfast bar and generally a more sophisticated look. The food on offer is exceptional.…

Mason & Bird

29 September, 2016
Mason & Bird

The cafe scene in the hills has exploded in the last few months. There is something about the area that is attracting some serious hospo talent. This includes chef Brad Johnston (ex head chef Print Hall Bar), his partner Jaclyn Noel and friend Matt Nguyen (both ex managers of Rockpool) who opened Mason & Bird. A tree change is what they were after, and they found it in the hills community of Kalamunda. The cafe is located at the Zig Zag cultural…

Frisch & Barc

14 August, 2016
Frisch & Barc - Breakfast Perth

Frisch & Barc. Weird name right? Well it has a nice meaning and it’s all about community. Karl Ritter von Frisch discovered that bees aren’t just mindless drones, they create communities. The barc is the wild hive they build. Siblings John and Kim Wong want their cafe to be a place of community, where customers return to and  always feel welcome – just like the bees to their barc. There is definitely that kind of vibe about the place with smiling,…

Barque

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…

Young George

Young George

George Street in East Freo is this little foodie hub tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main city of Fremantle. There’s a handful of cafes and restaurants that are all worth visiting, but on this occasion I was there to dine at Young George. Set in a typical heritage style building, this restaurant has a warm vibe and friendly staff to match. The open kitchen is great for watching the magic happen or to salivate from food…

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,…

Millpoint Caffe Bookshop

Millpoint Caffe - Breakfast Perth

I’ve reviewed a cafe in a travel agency but what about a cafe in a bookshop? Or is it a bookshop in a cafe? Either way, MillPoint Caffe Bookshop is inspired. I love browsing books and taking note of what I will read next or what I could give as a gift to a friend. With the increase of people reading e-books, shops like this are sadly becoming few and far between. What a great way to get people in – combining…

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…

Breakfast in Mandurah

Breakfast in Mandurah Breakfast Perth

Recently I was invited by the City of Mandurah and Visit Peel to experience the beautiful Peel Region. I will be writing a whole post on my visit to the region and what a great food and wine destination it is… But first BREAKFAST! The two cafes they had planned for us for breakfast were Cafe Coast and The Tea & Coffee Merchant. Both on the waters edge, I soon realised that this is pretty much the norm in the area…

Jack and Jill

Jack & Jill

I’ve heard you loud and clear Perth… apparently I do not review enough local nosheries serving good food at a reasonable price. But what is a reasonable price? What I consider reasonable might not be the same as the next person. I consider paying $20 for a breakfast in Perth made of local produce very reasonable…. but not everyone agrees. Too often, people associate price with quality but I urge you all to pay attention to where the ingredients are…
