Vans Cottesloe + Cycle around Perth’s Swan River

Vans Cottesloe opens when the sun is barely up and not even a mouse stirs on Napoleon Street. It's a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this doesn't surprise me because my fingers were hurting from the chill. Comfy inside and sitting by the beautiful ...

Coffee and Cake by the sea, City Beach

Located on the City Beach foreshore, Odyssea beach café is a scenic spot for an espresso. Monday mid-morning, the unexpected small queue isn’t an issue as there’s a two seat bar table on the alfresco decking area available, and with only the two of us we’re in luck today! On the way to the table we notice a cake and pastry table, and take a quick photo in passing, it's a good ...

Breakfast at The Shipping Lane, North Fremante

I feel a good majority of my posts on this blog mention the words– ‘today was a beautiful sunny warm day of clear blue skies.’ Anyone not living in Perth might find this difficult to believe. Aside from my fascination with the weather, Perth truly is the sunny state and today was much the same, even better because we had an enjoyable breakfast at the breezy beach cafe, The Shipping ...

Cheap breakfast in Cottesloe

C Blu restaurant, part of Ocean Beach Hotel (or as most know it ‘the OBH’) runs a $10.00 breakfast special all day long, and located across the road from the beach is superb for extending a morning in Perth’s beach neighbourhood of Cottesloe. In my early 20’s the OBH was a place for a sneaky drink or two and while it's still very much that popular place, these days I do ...

Swanbourne Beach to North Fremantle Cycle + Coffee

Setting out on a morning city cycle we were semi confident we would miss the storm predicted for later in the day,  consequently the much loved Perth Christmas Pageant was cancelled. Ever since the great storm of 2010, storms are taken seriously, but only really occur 50% of the forecasted time. So the weather was pretty good when we woke up, the sun was out and only a faint rustle of the ...

Cycling and breakfast in Cottesloe

Early Sunday morning on our cycling travels, we decided to stop for breakfast at Il Lido. I'm not sure if it's because we are out and about cycling more these days, however, I'm noticing a decent bicycle culture in Perth - both road and off-road. Weekend mornings are especially good around the Freo area and along the coast. It's a scenic cycle along the coast and the road conditions are fairly good. ...

Breakfast, Cider and a picturesque setting

The scenery at CORE Cider House is really sensational and it hits you the moment you pull up in the car park. The cidery and restaurant is set on a slope in the Perth hills with picturesque views across its orchard and Australian forest in the background. I have to say half way though our breakfast we spotted a prey bird with a huge wing span circling low through the orchard, it ...

Breakfast in an old bus garage at Propeller

Rising somewhat at an early hour, well for a Sunday morning that is, we made our way to Propeller in North Fremantle for breakfast and a much wanted coffee. Propeller opens from 7.00am which is great as most places tend to open later on the weekends. It was also nice to get in before the Sunday brunch crowd. If you have driven along the coast to Fremantle, chances are, you have passed ...
