I’ve had the same discussion with a few friends lately about how shattering it is when your favourite local neighbourhood cafe becomes way too busy and popular that you can no longer just pop in on a Sunday morning without having to wait for a table. I’m obviously very happy for the cafe owners who deserve all the recognition and customers they are attracting, but I miss my local. My local is now everyone’s local.
If you’re ever in the Mount Lawley/Highgate area and in dire need of a caffeine fix but are looking for a more chilled out spot then I’ve got the cafe for you. Lincoln’s 102 is your typical quirky Highgate establishment filled with rickety mismatched furniture and a healthy yet decadent menu but it is just off the busy Beaufort Street cafe strip so you don’t have to struggle to find parking or fight over tables. The perfect combination, right?

Give me sunshine and a good coffee and I’m one happy girl. This particular morning saw V, Lu and I gather in North Perth for a gossip session and a tasty breakfast. I’d been itching to visit the cafe, assuming a coffee shop with the name Cuppa Joe would serve a good cuppa joe. And I was right. Although I hadn’t heard too much about the cafe we were keen to give it a shot, and Urbanspoon’s rating sealed the deal. The bright, stylish eatery is located just off Scarborough Beach Road and although it was a little bit hard to find (thanks GPS), it was well worth the semi-confusing city drive.
I’ve been dying to visit Grass Espresso for months, but the opportunity has never arisen until now! According to Urbanspoon the cafe doesn’t open on Saturday (?) so we got up early on a Sunday morning and ventured to West Perth to finally it check out. What we discovered was everything we expected and more, and we were so pleased when we arrived at the cute little grass covered haven.
If you’re looking for a simple but tasty meal in a spacious, airy spot then Opal Cafe fits the bill perfectly. The Northbridge eatery is light and bright and the perfect place to meet up with friends.
Back in the day before I started blogging myself, I had a lot of spare time to read a hundred and one food, fashion and lifestyle blogs. You know you’ve found a good food blog when you feel hungry when reading the posts, and if I ever needed foodie advice I’d be straight onto dinewhitme.com. I’ve known epic food blogger and photographer Whit for a while now, and she’s pretty much a cool girl with an eye for good food. Her blog is filled with insanely gorgeous food snaps and hot tips on all the best places in town with a personal twist.
