Riverview on Mount Street

8:30 am on a Saturday morning in Perth and you would think it would be quiet around town.  We were planning on going to the new Gordon Street Garage Cafe which has magically appeared on Urbanspoon's talk of the town section (poll position 2) but unfortunately or maybe even fortunately for us there was a line out the door and waiting was not a option we were going to entertain. Our ...
