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.…

Slate Cafe- Breakfast Perth

Slate Cafe is the Swan Valley’s newest addition and it’s offering something truly different to anywhere else in Perth. They have a playground for the kids AND the fur kids. At the back of the cafe is a massive grassed area with both a nature play area and indoor playroom for the kiddies. There is a fenced off area for the dogs to run free, although many owners enjoy having their pooches sit next to their table. There is plenty…

Holly Rayes - Breakfast Perth

Just like Maylands, Bassendean is going through a bit of a renaissance. There’s apartments being built, a small bar set to open any day now and fantastic cafes popping up, with the newest being a little beauty called Holly Raye’s. They opened last week to a loud applause of Instagram and Facebook love. Andy and I visited on Friday and I wasn’t the only person there with a camera. When you have food bloggers there that early, you know this…

Oakover Grounds

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…

Boutique Travel Cafe

When a friend suggests going out for a catchup over breakfast I try to put the decision making back on them. “Where do you want to go?” is usually met with a reply of “I don’t mind – you know where’s best”. Or in the case of my friend Belinda, the reply is “I don’t mind, so long as it’s better than site food”. Going out for breakfast with someone who works on a mine site fills me with anxiety. I know…

Homestead Inside

Breakfast in the Swan Valley… is there anywhere worth visiting besides Taylors Art & Coffee House?  Some of you might say “oh but there’s that place (I won’t mention it’s name again for fear of an angry mob with pitchforks knocking at my door baying for my blood)”. No – not that place with it’s $25 tinned bean breakfast. NOT EVER. Well now we have another choice for a top quality brekky in the valley. Drum roll please….. Let me…

Before anyone begins the task of visiting home opens and display homes in 38 degree heat,  you need to make sure you are fed and watered. Without a wholesome breakfast and amazing coffee the “fed up” mood would have come a lot sooner for Andy and I as we traipsed around from house to house.. display home to display home and Jezebelle’s gave us the fuel we needed. Located in art deco building at the end of a long line…

Taylor’s Art & Coffee House

After reviewing Penny Garden last weekend, I thought it would be good to do a review of Taylor’s as a bit of comparison because they are in the same area with similar prices. There was a bit of an uproar on WA Today about the prices at Penny Garden so I want to show my readers what else you can get for your money in the Swan Valley that is of much better quality! The cafe at Taylor’s is part of…

Penny Garden

When I heard the name “Penny Garden”, I thought a little cottage style cafe in the swan valley where you would eat home style food surrounded by rose bushes….there might also be a bird bath there somewhere too. What Shirley Adams and I found on Saturday morning was a cold and clinical restaurant that looked like you could hose it out at the end of service. There are tables outside that over look a grassed area down to a dam…
