Bites By D, 147 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn, Phone 9444 7712.
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This Too … Tried Bites By D for the first time at the Mt Hawthorn Streets & Lanes Festival. This is review number two in my collection of three Dessert Cafés and it’s a keeper.
On my first visit my order was coffee and a spinach and feta sausage roll. So good I had to stage a return visit to eat some more of them. Bites By D’s coffee is a-m-a-zing, very strong, great Crema and warm enough to keep me happy.
The second visit I purchased a “Summer Delight” for $9.00 and another cup of that great java. Both were absolutely delicious.
So, what’s a Summer Delight? It’s a cake with layers of Vanilla and Lemon Bavarian Cream, Strawberry and Raspberry Jelly and Almond and Pistachio Biscuit . There was a bonus thin layer of chocolate at the base which I presume was how it kept the cake sitting perfectly.
As I was leaving I picked up a couple of those perfect sausage rolls to take home for lunch. It was a wise decision. Must say their Lunch Rolls also looked fabulous, multigrain with a variety of different fillings. Next time.
Décor wise the Café is plush, with clean lines, classy curtains and chandeliers. And, a humungous display cabinet full of delectable goodies.
So, all I know is that I’m going to have to persuade Xena to return to try their High Tea. They take bookings through their website and the cost is $50.00 to $55.00 and includes a hot beverage. Can’t wait.
