Joel and I came across this neat little spot around the corner from us a few weeks back when looking for coffee, though we went back this morning to try out their breakfast menu, and I thought I’d share. Located on pleasant little Hobart street, where you don’t have to fret if you’ll get hit by a car when crossing the road, is Hobart Deli. Being only short bike ride from our house, it will be hard not to keep going back every Saturday morning. Firstly, I’d like to mention that I love a cafe that dresses their shop well, and this one did not disappoint as we were greeted by a lovely wall of genius by one of Perth’s local talents; Creepy. The inside was full of lovely things to look at too, and they seemed to have gotten into the Christmas spirit – Which I loved! There were plenty quirky…

So Joel and I visited Sherbet a little while ago, and oh my did my eyes light up as soon as we walked in! Sherbet is a retro bake shop in Maylands run by best pals Sheree + Beth. They were fans of the cupcake scene in New York and have been baking at top speed since moving back. The counter is lined with cakes, biscuits and slices of all varieties. A small refrigerated cabinet showcases sandwiches neatly wrapped in wax paper and string; huge, fluffy marshmallow slices; tarts brimming with feta and caramelised onions; and a curious-looking treat entitled “salted caramel slice”. Joel got the Zucchini, bacon, caramelised onion & cheddar tart, and I picked the Free range chicken on sourdough with roasted peppers, rocket, danish feta and avocado mayo. The sandwich was delicious, but the most exciting part was that it was served American-style, with a generous side of pickles and crisps! We couldn’t help but…

After a lazy morning on our last day in Sydney our new friend Alex met us at a lovely cafe by the name of Armchair Collective in Mona Vale on Sydney’s northern beaches. We really were only suposed to be there for coffee, but I couldn’t resist the look of the little lemon meringue pies on the counter display full of delicious treats. Armchair Collective is the owned by the same cleaver people that started up The Boathouse, which explains in some ways why it’s so good. What makes this place even more appealing is the range of home wares they stock. Even if you’re not into coffee, it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in the area.

A few weeks back I went on a little date with one of my favourite girls Emily to Hay Street’s Jean Pierre Sancho patisserie for a bite  to eat. I’ve only been here a handful of times, but I always leave satisfied. All of their food is made from scratch, fresh, every day in their Hay Street kitchen by their French Chefs who all have fine dining experience. For some seriously tasty pastries or just a yummy baguette head over there and check it out for yourself.

This little slice of the city has a long standing reputation of being the place to hang in Perth’s CBD. That’s right this week we’re sharing an old fav; Tiger, Tiger! A quaint coffee bar located down an alley linned with potted greenery, in amongst the goodness of King Street and what we think has been the face of Wolf Lane for quite some time. It seems this is where all the hidden Perth poets hang, and has a pretty cool art-house vibe to it. Wednesdays are a certainly a day to pay them a visit if you want to try their Single Origin flavours from different coffee regions; though really any cup from this place is a guaranteed winner. Whether it’s sharing with pals or demolishing something on your own, their Spanish and North African influenced menus also isn’t something to look past. Tiger Tiger have certainly embraced the…
