First look @ Little Bird

J told me about a new cafe that opened up called Little Bird located on the ground floor of a new multistorey carpark as part of the Governor Place complex in Barton. As I was still on leave, I headed in for lunch one weekday. I was meant to meet J for lunch but he […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Remi Food & Wine Bar

*I dined as a guest, however all opinions are my own. Remi Food and Wine Bar is tucked away between two buildings on Moore Street in the city. Originally owned by the Trimboli family (of Mezzalira, Italian & Sons, Da Rosario, Bacaro fame), it has recently been rebranded and taken over by Michael De Silva […] Read more…

Brunch @ Bib & Tucker (Fremantle)

With gorgeous Indian ocean views, Bib & Tucker can be found in North Fremantle near the Fremantle Surf Life Saving Club. A sign by the entrance states to wait to be seated, and it wasn’t long before my sister and I were escorted inside. Even though it was only a Friday morning, all the outdoor […] Read more…

Burgers @ Beef & Barley

The next eatery to join the recently opened Cinnabar and 7th and Bake at the Kingston Foreshore is Beef & Barley. Offering gourmet burgers and craft beers, Beef & Barley has a very laid back hipster vibe minus the plants with chipboard and timber decor. The outdoor seating provides a combination of benches and high […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions

Lunch @ Cornerstone

I have walked past Cornerstone Cafe in Weston Creek numerous times and finally organised a group lunch one weekend. The first thing to catch my eye were the hipster looking timber spools reused as tables, and timber high tables outside. The menu stuck to the window for passerby’s showed inexpensive prices which was another reason […] Read more…

Brunch @ Double Shot

Having meant to go back sooner, I realised it had been over a year since my last visit to Double Shot in Deakin. I finally returned to Double Shot last week, during the Christmas/New Year shut down period, as it was one of the few eateries that remained open in Canberra. The menu had so […] Read more…

Brunch @ The Knox Made in Watson

The Knox Made in Watson is a suburban cafe at the Watson shops which opened up a few months ago, replacing Satis. The team love the suburb of Watson and use as much local produce and supplies as possible, hence the ‘Made in Watson’ motto. Rounding the corner of the shops, I walked towards a […] Read more…

Brunch @ Ivy and the Fox

At the beautiful grounds of Old Canberra House in Acton, you will find the newly opened Ivy and the Fox. This is the sister restaurant to the highly popular suburban cafe, Fox and Bow, in Farrer. Owner Alex Piris invited me to check out the launch a few months back. The name Ivy and the […] Read more…
