The Tribute Cafe

IMG_1208.jpg

It's safe to say that I'm healthily obsessed with this place. 
The Tribute Cafe in Shelley opened up in late July, and in the span of less than 2 weeks I've already been four times. 

They have a reasonable amount of seating without making it too crowded. They've timed their opening perfectly as the weather is just clearing up, making it beautiful to sit outside. You can also bring your furry friends as there's a spot to tie up your pup outside and a water bowl too!

They have perfected the interior design and also mastered their menu and the food itself. It consists of the classics; eggs Benedict, buttermilk pancakes and smashed avo (because you can NEVER go wrong with smashed avo). You can't even call yourself a breakfast place in Perth without having a good smashed avo, and this place does it perfectly. Dukkah crusted feta and beetroot puree drizzled over the top? Yes please!

I'm also glad that they didn't skip the eggs Benedict because that is an all time favourite of mine (but for some reason lots of the "hipster" breakfast places don't serve it). I would gladly like to hear why because a perfectly poached egg is one way of starting an excellent day.

They also have various other dishes of their own like the Tribute Sarni and the Wagyu Brioche Burger, both of which look amazingly instagram worthy with their charcoal brioche buns.

With not much else in the area as far as trendy café joints go, this place is bound to be bustling all Spring and Summer long. So make sure you check it out to see what the hype is all about! Also, you're bound to bump into someone you know on a busy Saturday morning seeing as Perth is so small. 

If you're going on a Saturday I'd recommend getting there nice and early, especially if the weather is nice. When I went on Saturday the queue was out the door and all the way to the street!

I also made a short youtube video if you want to see more of what The Tribute Cafe is really like. 

 

Little Olive Leaf Café

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset After buying all the essentials from the pharmacy for my trip away, I drove past this little café. Hidden over in the suburbs of Wilagee, I had never seen this café before. I was pleasantly delighted to see the range of foods and drinks they had and the quaint beauty of it. There aren't many seats but it wasn't busy; the perfect time to sit down and have a little something by yourself.

I will definitely go again with the company of someone else to enjoy the lunch meals. They have a range of classic breakfasts ranging from plain croissants to eggs florentine. But as you can see in the image, they also have quiches, curries, pastas and shepherds pies. I'm looking forward to trying those beauties :)

The seating area is lined with mismatched cushions and chairs. Perfect for a lounge, anytime of the day. Let me know if you've been to this café or if you plan on going! Would love to see what you order.

I can honestly say that this pressed juice (although not freshly pressed at the café) was THE BEST juice I have ever had. Man, I'm really discovering some "best" things on this blog (check THE BEST banana bread ever).

Open invitation to anyone reading this if they want to come with me to this café next time ;)

Bus Stop Café

DSC03477-Edit-2 If you think many of my posts are beach themed, you'd be right. Between Leighton beach and Cottesloe stands Mosman Beach. A beach populated mostly by dogs and dog owners. However, humans without dogs might come to such a location to check out the Bus Stop Café located along the street.

This cute little vibrant café is actually a bus. They serve coffee, smoothies, breakfast meals but best of all BANANA BREAD. 

I've never particularly been a fan of banana bread. But after Coralie ordered the banana bread here and I took a bite, I instantly fell in love. This is THE BEST banana bread I have  ever had. Make sure you take a seat on the bus to eat your banana bread while it's warm and toasty.

Let me know if you've ever been here, if you go here and what you order because there are A LOT of amazing looking things on this menu :)

A Day in North Cottesloe

DSC03429 copy-2  

If you guys didn't know, I am OBSESSED with pinterest. Not saying I'm late to the train or anything because I have been obsessed for a very long time, and I don't think that's going to stop anytime soon. If any of you live in Perth, I would suggest following my "Places to Eat in Perth" board. I often update it with screenshots of instagram locations.

Coralie and I started our Tuesday by going for a drive down to Cottesloe/North Cottesloe where we found Daisies Cottesloe. A cute little café/brunch spot. With indoor and outdoor tables and a short walk to the beach we ordered our coffees and went for a stroll up the road.

When going to the beach, the most common beach to go to is Cottesloe Beach. With cafés, fish and chip shops and the iconic Indiana overlooking the ocean, its no wonder why it's always busy. However, after seeing this North Cottesloe beach on such a beautiful day, I think I'll be driving that little extra distance to go to the beach more often than not. The beach was mostly empty and the water was crystal clear.

Coralie and I both regretted not wearing swim wear, but that didn't stop us from getting in the water.

May Street Larder

Located is East Fremantle, May Street Larder is a tumblr-esque, cute, little café with lots of vegetarian and/or vegan alternatives.11911495_10204921677658193_1122012058_nThe first time I went was when someone recommended it to my vegan friend, Coralie. Hearing about this place through its artsy instagram, we knew what to expect. I ordered the breakfast burrito, chorizo, feta, eggs and white beans, served on a wooden board with the jalapeno sauce in a little glass dish on the side, absolutely delicious. Although a little on the pricey side, it definitely is worth it!

Taking photos was a difficult feat; we went on a Saturday and had to wait 20 minutes to get a table. However, again, it was definitely worth the wait. Coralie and I were constantly gazing around the room, visualising countless photo opportunities; we would have to come on a day where we could actually take photos.

11950773_10204921675298134_415476390_nAlthough the main meal was great, the desert was even better. May Street Larder is known for their cocowhip. Cocowhip is a frozen soft serve made only using coconut water (meaning it’s gluten free, dairy free and vegan). It looks similar to frozen yoghurt, but it’s a MILLION times better. You can get cacao infused cocowhip with your choice of toppings. I recommend the vegan caramel. ;)

May street larder also sell their own lupinola, protein balls, jam and vegan chocolate, all in cute instagram-worthy packets.

From the first time I went there, I knew that May Street Larder was somewhere I would go often, whether to simply get a cocowhip or to get a scrumptious brunch. I took these photos when I went on a weekday, where there was near no-one in the store and I had many opportunities to take as many photos as I wanted.
