Brilliant burgers … The staff are very friendly and efficient at Grill’d Leederville. The decor is funky and fun. The cafe is over two levels inside and there is pavement dining as well. Quite a large outside area, as they’re in a corner location. It’s a well decorated cafe, as all Grill’d cafes seem to be. And, their funky, industrial chic is ever present in Leederville.
Saffron Indian Restaurant, 907B Beaufort Street, Inglewood WA 6052, Phone 9272 3459.
Spice is Life … Saffron Indian Restaurant a stalwart of the Beaufort Street eateries. The Restaurant is settled amongst a slew of cafes. They are always busy, so the competition seems to be good for business.
Mixed feelings … The place has a nice atmosphere and the staff are great. We were greeted and seated, given menus, and there was help yourself water. The café is airy and a couple of hills away from Scarborough Beach. But there was salt in the air and that made for a nice atmosphere in itself.
Francoforte Spaghetti Bar, 4 / 189 William Street, Northbridge WA 6003, Phone 9227 9289.
Kale pesto … Finding Francoforte Spaghetti Bar is probably the hardest part about dining at this tiny little café. Hidden away in an Arcade off William Street in Northbridge, you’d be forgiven for getting lost. To be honest, I didn’t even know that the Arcade was there and must have walked past is for years.
Evropa Continental Deli, Shop 5, North Perth Plaza, Fitzgerald Street, North Perth WA 6006, Phone 9328 2784.
Time tested … North Perth shopping area isn’t very large but there are a number of shops that I visit there frequently. Like Istanbul Kitchen for their freshly made Turkish Bread and Hummus. And Evropa Continental Deli for their home style food.
Bob’s Bar, Print Hall, Brookfield Place, 125 St Georges Terrace, Perth Wa 6000, Phone 6282 0077.
Dumplings and Cava … What I like about Bob’s Bar most is that it’s named after Bob Hawke. Not because I’m a fan but because if ever there was a larrikin that deserved a bar named after him it’s BH. The walls are lined with quotes from the man himself. “Any boss who sacks anyone for not turning up today is a bum.” Etc.
