Millpoint Caffe Bookshop

10 February, 2016
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…

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…

Gooseberries Cafe

Gooseberries Cafe

I get the feeling that Gooseberries Cafe is a little local secret. Families walk down with their kids in tow on bikes with training wheels and grans and granddads sit and enjoy a coffee at a sunlit table whilst reading the paper. It’s wholesome and sweet yet there is a funky edge. Maybe it’s the signage made from recycled oil drums or the abstract art on the walls – but this place definitely has a touch of style. From the…

I have a list of all the places I need to visit for breakfast but with all the new openings the list gets bigger and these new places get pushed to the top of the list. Gusto Food has sat patiently on my list and finally I got the chance to check it out with the backing of plenty of my readers who all told me I would love it with some saying “it’s one of my favourites”. So, what…

Hangout Bar N Cafe

Hangout Bar N Cafe

When a group of friends want to go for breakfast we start the process of looking for somewhere to go. I refer to it as a “process” because suggestions are offered up and I know some of the places don’t take bookings – so they get put in the “too hard basket”. I understand why places don’t take bookings but it still irritates me when these “group” occasions arise and we can’t always book. This breakfast location search was put…

Halo Espresso

On yet another scorching 40 degree day, Megs and I were on the hunt for somewhere air conditioned to serve us breakfast. We headed to Angelo St with the intent of going to to Gusto but they were closed, instead we went next door to Halo Espresso. It was really packed but we soon jumped on a table as two people were leaving – thank god. We didn’t fancy heading back out into the heat to try and find somewhere…

Secret Garden Cafe

28 January, 2010

Secret Garden Cafe – 64 Angelo St South Perth Breakfast served all day from 7.30am Licensed for BYO After a suggestion to go here from one of my readers, my sister and I thought we’d check it out. The Secret Garden looks like an ordinary cafe/lunch bar from the front but out the back there is seating amongst beautiful lush gardens made of hanging vines and trees. But guess what? My sister and I didn’t know it was around the…
