Satchmo Cafe

New North Perth addition Satchmo Cafe has absolutely nailed the the thing that’s arguably most difficult, but most important, to get right in a cafe. Any guesses what it is? It’s not the coffee.

Bloggers Dinner at the Naked Fig

Trust us, the Naked Fig has way more going for them than their cheeky branding and beachside location. We dined there the other night and had one of the tastiest feeds we’ve had in a while – lamb ‘lollies’ coated in hoi sin and sesame? Roasted salmon with potato gratin? Gnocchi topped with candied walnuts? […]

Fremantle Coffee Festival 2012
