It’s only open two days a week. It shares a home with a few other foodie ventures. It’s a concept cafe filled with love and delicious eats. Intrigued? So was I. And that it why I recently had to keep a weekend morning free to visit The Sarapan in Victoria Park.
I’ve had the same discussion with a few friends lately about how shattering it is when your favourite local neighbourhood cafe becomes way too busy and popular that you can no longer just pop in on a Sunday morning without having to wait for a table. I’m obviously very happy for the cafe owners who deserve all the recognition and customers they are attracting, but I miss my local. My local is now everyone’s local.
If you’re ever in the Mount Lawley/Highgate area and in dire need of a caffeine fix but are looking for a more chilled out spot then I’ve got the cafe for you. Lincoln’s 102 is your typical quirky Highgate establishment filled with rickety mismatched furniture and a healthy yet decadent menu but it is just off the busy Beaufort Street cafe strip so you don’t have to struggle to find parking or fight over tables. The perfect combination, right?
I’ve been dying to visit Grass Espresso for months, but the opportunity has never arisen until now! According to Urbanspoon the cafe doesn’t open on Saturday (?) so we got up early on a Sunday morning and ventured to West Perth to finally it check out. What we discovered was everything we expected and more, and we were so pleased when we arrived at the cute little grass covered haven.
If you ever find yourself in the tiny country town of Toodyay and a coffee and cake craving hits (they are very sporadic), pop over to Wendouree Tea Rooms.
