Raw Nachos in Fremantle

Well, 220,000 kms and 10 years later, we upgraded our car and to say the least, it has been a well deserved purchase and I'm super happy. I have a tendency for holding onto things :).  10 years sure does equal a whole heap of electronic advancements in automotion. There is a button for almost everything and seat heaters are a great idea!  To celebrate, we took Tigger (yep it has a name) for a ...

Ocean Views at Bib & Tucker

Beginning a morning at the beach is a must do in Perth, and anywhere along the coast will do. This Good Friday holiday we headed to Leighton beach for an early (for a public holiday anyhow) morning breakfast at Bib & Tucker.  Most places tend to close on Good Friday, however, this year there were plenty open around town and with an instagram account it was an effortless task in finding choices for ...

Twilight Hawker Markets

It’s Friday, the end of the working week and the traffic starts to disperse from the city as people hurry on home giving rise to bumper to bumper vehicles on most of the roads leading out. Why would you want to enter the madness?  Well, because in the mall away from the traffic is a bustling food market scene. Perth’s Twilight Hawker Markets will run every Friday night during summer at ...

Lucioli Bar

Wandering through the promenade at Claremont Quarter, we were lured into Lucioli Bar by the sweet display of Italian pastries and cakes. I can be easily distracted in the pursuit of delicious food, especially cakes. The Italian bar and restaurant is a nice addition to Claremont and apart from coffee and food, diners can enjoy an aperitivo or glass of alcohol from the menu. The idea of indulging in a ...

Esthers Cake Shop and Cafe

Located on William Street, a short distance from the Newcastle Street intersection is a small takeaway Asian bakery. On a Saturday morning the smell of freshly baked warm buns and soft Pandan cakes is an excuse to stop by. Also, the first destination on the Red Hot Spatula Asian foodie walkabout tour (post to follow soon) with Yvonne and Yolanda.   Similar to a bakery we visited in Japan the protocol is to ...

Breakfast at Lawley’s Bakery

Early Saturday mornings are always incredibly hard if not impossible at all,  our guests were checking out of the apartment and this meant we had to 'do the needful' in preparing it for the next guest which was scheduled to arrive later that morning. Before doing 'the needful' we stopped by Lawley's Bakery Cafe in Shenton Park for coffee and breakfast. Breakfast runs from 6:30 am to 1:30 pm every ...

Simmo’s Icecreamery, Rottnest Island

Simmo's Ice Cream has only been open since December 2012 and yet I cannot imagine Rottnest Island without it! There are over 36 delicious flavours of ice cream to choose from and all are handmade in the Dunsborough location using local West Australian produce. My first experience of Simmo's was in Dunsborough at their main location and since then no trip to Dunsborough is complete without a stop off at this local ice creamery, the ...

Choux Cafe

Choux Cafe is a cosy and unassuming cafe located on a leafy tree green neighbourhood street in Swanbourne. The French cafe is one of my favourite places in Perth to visit for cake, coffee and croissants. I particularly love that all of the goods are baked in the little kitchen behind the counter using quality ingredients. Croissants made from real butter and not artificial substitutes. Pastisserie cakes made from creme patisserie. Pies, tarts, sausage rolls ...
