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.

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.
