Mighty Rawwr! + a park walk

The other day I attempted a raw chocolate mousse with the main ingredient being avocado. The end result looking a little messy but it was seriously delicious. I also felt good afterwards.

Sonnys – Revisited, Subiaco

Sonnys is another fantastic Subiaco cafe but unlike the others along Rokeby Road this one has an old school Italian charm. The City of Subiaco does a historical connection to Italy when in 1851 a group of benedictine monks settled in the area and established their monastery called New Subiaco, named after their home town. So it feels rather fitting to stop by Sonnys. The decor is modern and sleek with the ...
