The Little Guildford is a quaint cafe across the train tracks and around the corner from the Swan Valley Information Centre. We were only intending to stop by for a couple of coffees but the warm bid of welcome was an easy ...

Aussie Morning Tea in Shenton Park

This morning spared us a little time between preparing the apartment for new airbnb guests and greeting them on arrival, earlier on we had rushed out the door without a sip of espresso or even a bite of breakfast and now we were a couple of hungry souls needing a swift refuel pit stop.

Winter in Perth has me craving cheese and bread and what better way to satisfy this want than visiting a place that has eight different styles of grilled cheese toasties! Toastface Grillah is a small cafe concealed rather well in the Grand Lane (cnr of Wellington and Barrack street) of Perth. A no frills casual sort of place where I dig the tunes and sitting back on benches, definitely a place ...

Lake Espresso, Claremont

Where in Claremont can you sip a hot coffee with a scenic and peaceful view? We may have found the perfect little place at the Lake Claremont Golf Course called Lake Espresso. The location is indeed somewhat hidden from the street when turning off Davies Road. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the Claremont train station. We ordered a couple of cappuccinos and a brekky wrap. Lake Espresso offer a super ...

Il Lido Italian Canteen, Cottesloe Beach

Walking into Il Lido the coffee machine is the first thing I see, an area dedicated for brewing and serving as well as furnishing takeaway orders. Il lido has somewhat of a casually relaxed vibe about it, it might be the Cottesloe Beach side location or the long solid timber communal tables and the beautiful large windows intended for gazing with a cup in hand. It is table service and we take ...
