Another weekend on the way in, another excuse to get in the car, chuck on the tunes and head out for breakfast (or brunch if you prefer a bit of a sleep in)!
With a new month upon us and a new season (hi Spring!) I thought it was time to check in with everyone and give you guys a mini update on some of the facets of my life. I’ve been running around like a headless chook for the last few weeks and I’m finally well and truly out of Winter hibernation mode. Yay! Bring on sunshine and festivities, I’m ready!
With weekend shifts aplenty at work as of late my brunch game has been failing! Scandalous, I know. I’ve self dubbed myself the Queen of Brunch and it’s one title I need to keep, hahaha. In the last few weeks I’ve been brunching at every chance and here are a few standouts for you guys to check out on your next brunch adventure. Be warned, drool worthy pictures ahead!
Brunch is still my favourite meal of all time and I’ve been out and about every weekend ticking one or two new places off my extremely long wish list. Lately we’ve been hanging out in our old hood, the South Perth area and it’s surrounds, as a crop of cool new spots have popped out of nowhere!
It’s no secret we spend a lot of time dining out, and why travel all the way to Leederville or Mt Lawley when Victoria Park is a skip and a jump down the road! A cultural hub filled with street art, quirky breakfast cafes and alternative shopping choices, it’s a personal favourite as it still has the cool vibes of its city suburb sisters, but it just seems so much more relaxed. The food scene is always evolving and changing and a new crop of lunch and dinner choices have made their way to the park. Here are three new restaurants you need to visit next time you’re in the area – trust me, they’re delicious!
As much as I love getting into the kitchen, sometimes I just can’t be bothered cooking after a long day at work. Especially when I work a lot of different shifts and sometimes don’t get home till after 8pm. The easiest option would be take away, but we all know how bad it is for you. That is why I was so excited to try Perth’s newest vegan food delivery service Wholistically Healthy, a quick and easy meal delivery service made fresh weekly in Perth and extremely good for you! Based on Ayurvedic principles, the universal and intertwined concept: you must have a healthy body to have a healthy mind, and a healthy mind to have a healthy body, the aim at Wholistically Healthy is to help you nourish your body, so you can feed your soul.
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.
I don’t know who Betty and Dave are, but I like them. And I like their new addition to Inglewood’s growing list of cute brunch spots. Betty & Dave’s is a bit of a retro style diner sporting colourful interiors, a healthy menu and the coolest bright pink coffee machine you ever did see.
If you haven’t heard of Yelp please tell me you’ve been hiding for the last few years? Yelp is a worldwide thing. It’s a website and app created to highlight, share and review businesses in your area to promote them, discover new trades, services, stores and eateries and to make life a little bit easier for those looking for info. Plus it’s so much fun!
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!
