Cafés in Perth

Bar Botanik
North Perth


Zamia Cafe
Kings Park

One of our favourite cafés in Perth


Sayers
Leederville


Peninsula Tea Gardens
Maylands

Till now this is still my favourite afternoon tea venue. Love the tranquility while enjoying those sweets, paired with the sparkling.
This time round was much better than the last 2 visits as there were no crows trying to befriend us and no rain.
It just felt so relaxed to be enjoying the Swan River view and basking in the late afternoon sun at about 10°C.


Gordon Street Garage
West Perth


The Tenth State
Crawley


Bread in Common
Fremantle


Hush Specialty Coffee
Fremantle

Her 80th birthday present – II

Day 3

Homestead Brewery

Baudin’s Macadamia

Had a therapeutic walk at the Swan River in Maylands before our afternoon tea.


Day 4

After breakfast, we went for coffee and shopped for a couple of hours at Watertown Brand Outlet.

Dinner was with Sis’ friends and their family.


Day 5

We had to check out at 10am. Too wasteful to throw away the leftover food (like bacon & bread) as it was not nice to leave them to the host.

Next stop was Fremantle, it was only a 10-minute drive.

Her 80th birthday present – I

Asked mom if she wanted a banquet for her 80th birthday or a family holiday, without any hesitation she chose the latter.

For the both of us, we prefer to take red eye flights as we would have a full day upon arrival. But with an 80 year-old, we chose a morning flight and reached Perth at about 1pm.

We did not do much during the 5D4N. Just walking around a bit, visited some cafés and a bit shopping… mainly some elderly-friendly activities.

It was past 2pm by the time we collected our car, so went for late lunch first before checking in.

After settling in at the house, we made a trip to the nearby supermarket to get our next 5 days’ supplies.

Had dinner at one of our favourite restaurants (because of its beers), Little Creatures Brewing and ended the night earlier.

Had a minor accident that night when Sis was boiling drinking water for all of us. She scalded her foot when pouring the boiling water as the kettle was not closed properly.

For those few moments, we wished we did not stay in a big house as we had to run up and down to get first aids items (initially we did not know her scalds were quite serious).


Day 2

We made a doctor appointment for Sis to treat her wounds after breakfast. I found a clinic that was near the next destination. I wanted to visit a curated grocer.

Sis was tough, she walked as normal for the next 5 days. Glad that our activities were very lax, suited the senior citizen and the injured lady well.

The Shorehouse

We were not hungry so ordered small dishes and sides to share instead.

Lake Monger

Had afternoon coffee after Lake Monger and paid a short visit to Sis’ friends & family who migrated to Perth more than 10 years ago.

Hotel Stay

For the convenience, we booked a room at Pan Pacific on the wedding day of my SIL.

A short but very comfortable stay – spacious room, including the bathroom, with everything we needed. Just a pity that we did not really have the chance to fully enjoy the room.

Wedding Bells

It was the first in the family after almost 8 years. Last Friday, my sister-in-law (hubz’s 2nd older sis) got married.


Doing dinner the Japanese way

A few rounds of champagne before dinner

And free flow wines throughout the dinner

Proceeded on to the hotel’s Atrium on Level 1 to continue the boozing.
