“Dear kindred spirit,
The making of this tea has been somewhat of an experience, let me tell you about it…”
It’s not every day you have the chance to sit down to a decadent three course meal, and a birthday is a very good chance to do so! E’s sister S celebrated a milestone birthday a few weeks back so obviously we had to celebrate in style, and Casa Del Amici provided the goods.
Stepping into Subiaco’s new breakfast spot The Lion & Jaguar is like stepping into an African safari. The new addition to the suburb is nestled in the arcade near the train station, and even though I don’t visit Subiaco too often I couldn’t miss the fluffy animal print stools spilling onto the street from the small, but festive cafe.
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?
