The Otherside Cafe, Swanbourne

Located om Railway Street along the Fremantle train line and bicycle path, The Otherside Cafe is often a place we stop through on the morning cycle to Fremantle. More specifically it's located on the other side of Swanbourne train station and accessible via the small Claremont Crescent bridge. A tiny cafe but certainly a great one for coffee, one of our favourite spots for long black coffee in Perth. We enjoy sitting on ...

Best Long Black Coffee in Perth

Earlier this year I switched to drinking long black coffee. This style of coffee is an espresso poured on top of the water, filling a cup. Yes, it’s long and it’s black. I love it. Enjoying a strong bodied long black in cafes can be a hit and miss around Perth. Milk tends to be helpful at masking bitter or over extracted beans by sweetening the overall taste. Fresh quality coffee beans and ...

Sensational coffee at Pickle & O, Nannup

Gearing up for a day of exploring the town of Nannup we stopped in at Pickle and O, a small fresh food focused cafe on the main street next to the tourist centre.

I highly recommend this place for coffee and a reasonably priced ...

Pixel Coffee, Leederville

I really need to visit Leederville more often because it seems this neighborhood is alive with activity and plenty of cafe choices to sit and enjoy a coffee. Located near the Italian deli Re-Store  is a quaint little cafe called Pixel Coffee. It's a popular haunt for locals and those that see the lovely looking photos through social media. I am the latter, and when I found myself in Leederville for an ...

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 ...

We were in Binningup for the long weekend and the plan was to drive further south to Pemberton. Setting out as the sun's rays were spearing from the land, we were fortunate to have some fantastic scenery outside the window to keep ...

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 ...

Smashing breakfast at Asado Bar

From the picket fence, Asado Bar brings an air of casual coolness to Claremont’s Quentin Avenue. The modern restaurant features a number of different spaces from wicker chairs with sinking cushions to high bar seat tables. Light urban industrial and warm wooded tones. If you like a place with emphasis on interior design, this is one to take note of. So, having enjoyed a good breakfast on the last visit, we couldn’t ...

CocoWhip at Nature’s Harvest

On the way to the beach one weekend we stopped by Nature's Harvest for a coffee, and to try CocoWhip. Napoleon Street, situated across from Cottesloe train station has a few good spots for coffee and Nature’s Harvest would have to be one of them. There are a couple of options on the menu for the coconut water based ice cream, and we select the tiramisu to share, thinking it’ll go perfectly ...
