It is a rare occurrence for me to visit Subiaco. Even though I work 5 minutes from the pretty strip, I never manage to make my way to Rokeby Road.
But when I discovered a super cute vintage fashion and costume market was being held near Perth Modern it gave my friend L and I the perfect excuse to wander the streets of Subi post sale and pop into 1982 Espresso for a much needed cake and coffee date.
If I had to describe the tiny cafe nestled in next door to the iconic Regal Theatre in one word it would be comfortable. L and I kicked back in gorgeous, luxe sofas and enjoyed a girly goss complete with scrummy cake.
On today’s adventure I went with the Mini Raspberry Baked Cheesecake. Tart berries and rich, luscious cheese filling, the cake was a lovely sweet treat. L’s Almond and Orange Cake was moist, zesty and she didn’t leave a crumb. Our coffee’s arrived promptly and were just as they should be. Strong, smooth and very easy to drink. And very pretty to photograph – the rich purple mugs were gorgeous.
1982 is the perfect place to pop in, relax in a comfortable chair and just chill out. No wonder it’s always so busy, Subi people know a good thing when they see it.
