Looking for a Perth cafe and restaurant with a water view but don’t want to drive all the way to the beach? Claisebrook Lake in East Perth is an inner city gem with a stunning view, right in the middle of our pretty city. It’s one of those perfect brunch locations that caters for every kind of foodie, with cafes, burger bars, pubs and more all in one location, and on this particular visit to the beautiful spot we couldn’t pass up trying The Partisan.
One thing I noticed about eating out over the holiday period was the lack of cafe’s and restaurant’s that were actually open! I totally get hospitality staff need a break too but they would have made a killing over the Christmas and New Year period, the places that were open were super busy! So busy that my friend L and I had to “shop around” in Northbridge recently as the cafe we were planning to visit was so packed we probably would have waited 30 minutes for a table. Thank goodness Little Willys on William Street was open and we managed to score the only free table in the teeny little cafe. I love it when that happens!
