Short forest Walk in Daglish – Honeyeaters and Eucalyptus

While sunny Perth has it's fair share of green open park land, reticulated and perfectly groomed lawns and deciduous trees I  often think the native Australian flora offers an interactive and pleasurable experience. Let me show you why that is. Located in Daglish is a very small strip of forest that has fortunately been spared from the surrounding development. This isn't classed as an official walk per say, although if I had to assign a name ...

Warming meals from Red Chair Cafe

We were borderline famished and looking forward to a big warming meal to tide us over ...

Sugo is great at Tommy Sugo

This wintery evening we stopped in at Tommy Sugo, a pop up store located at Stimulatte Café in Subiaco. Pop up, meaning the coffee centric café transforms into a pasta serving eatery in the evenings from 5pm. It's a cool concept and the name is somewhat catchy too. Fresh pasta and great ingredients combined with an Italian heritage are three standouts from Tommy Sugo’s story and philosophy. Worth a read if you are interested ...

Mighty Rawwr! + a park walk

The raw food movement is slowly winning me over, there are some great places around town to find the raw equivalent of a decadent chocolate cake or creamy topped carrot cake. 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. Located at the quiet end of the Station ...

The store is layered with earthy and eco styled items from sweet-smelling candles to hanging pots and crochet lamp covers. Having ...

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 ...
