Engine Room Espresso, 450C Fitzgerald St, North Perth WA 6006, Phone 0420 703 419.
Delightful … Engine Room is a small and cosy café opposite the Rosemount Hotel on Fitzgerald Street. The décor is part industrial, part trashy chic. Decor includes distressed cement floors, exposed ceilings and eclectic furniture.There is a tiny but swish outdoor courtyard.
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.
