Hamptons City Beach, 179 Challenger Parade, City Beach, Phone 9385 9588.
Beside The Seaside … Visited Hamptons City Beach last week for their official Training Day. A day set aside for their staff to have a dress rehearsal. We were really excited to be going and they kindly offered 50% off any food ordered.
Beaufort Local, 488-492 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 9328 6299.
Hey. Cool. Easy. Sweet. … Beaufort Local (formerly Beaufort St Merchant) has a split personality. Inside there is utter sophistication while outside is a funky al fresco with real trees and eclectic seating.
Nexus Coffee Brewers, Shop 10, 2nd Avenue Plaza Centre, 755 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 0451 977 847.
Java Good Day … Sorry couldn’t resist the awful pun. Queens Birthday weekend and Nexus had queues of people lining up for their coffee. It was surprising to see so many people at this Hole In The Wall venue. Just because there’s not a lot of seating.
The Groper And His Wife, Gayton Road, City Beach WA 6015, Phone 9385 7384.
Welcome Back … The Groper and His Wife, almost an institution in City Beach, has reopened. It required a great deal of effort on their part to make that happen. The fire that destroyed the café, and other businesses, left nothing behind but a shell.
Ivy League, Shop 15-16, 863 Hay Street, Perth WA 6000, Phone 6261 9332.
A Cluster at Cloisters … Ivy League is the latest addition to Cloisters Square in the CBD. It was never really a foodie haven but now there is a distinct cluster of cafes and lunch spots to choose from. Three of my favourite Coffee Bars lurk together in and around this small Square.
