Monte Fiore Cafe, 628 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9227 9898.
Mandatory Revisit … Monte Fiore is one of the oldest restaurants in Mount Lawley. Predominately home style Italian meals served to white table clothed tables with a pleasant view of bustling Beaufort Street.
Thai Spice on Oxford, 135 Oxford Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 444 0321.
Adieu Giardini Cafe … And, hello Thai Spice on Oxford. Used to frequent Giardini Café quite a bit. In it’s heyday it was a vibrant place. Saying that, was very excited to see Thai Spice on Oxford arrive on the strip. Was even more excited when I found the Restaurant open for lunch on Saturday.
Siena’s Sister Roars Back to Beaufort … It was an institution really, the former Sienas that sat in this very same building. But the Restaurant we all knew and loved is back with a bounce in it’s step and a clean, bright makeover. So, the new name reflects its tie-in with Siena’s Leederville.
Nash and Co, 200 Whatley Crescent, Maylands WA 6051.
Shakshuka and Surprises … Headed off to Nash and Co for brunch this morning. This is a surprising venue, housed as it is in an old building on the Maylands Café Strip. It’s full of nostalgic bric-a-brac and is laid out like someone’s home.
Dining in the Dark … Lit by Candlelight, a Woodfired Pizza Oven and a Neon Sign. Throw in a few regular electric lights as well and the result is charming. Ace Pizza is housed in a lovely old stand alone building at the tail end of the Beaufort Street Café Strip.
Tan Po Po Japanese Tea House, 623 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 9328 8313.
No Frills, Simple Home Cooked Fare … Was pointed at this little Tea House on Beaufort Street and pushed in their direction. A friend said if you want tasty Japanese at a good price then try Tan Po Po. So I did.
Cimbalino Espresso, EnEx100, 683-703 Hay Street Mall, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9226 4499.
Bellissimo Cappuccino … Today saw me visiting the EnEx100 Mall in the City again. It was early, I was tired and the need for coffee won me over. There are quite a few coffee shops in this Mall, so who to choose?
Metrio and Co, 36-38 Angove Street, North Perth WA 6006, Phone 9227 0077.
Revisit … Heard rumours that Metrio and Co had been sold, so decided to make a return visit and see how things were looking. The café looks the same, the food in the display case looks the same, the service was as friendly as ever. So far, so good.
