A Sunday brunch with Marmite, Midnight Oil, Ms Grey, Madam Rabbit and I at Chapels on Whatley, a quaint and somewhat oddball cafe in the curious suburb of Maylands.
Chapels describes itself on its website as the sum of three separate components:
- a retail store for 'Chapels Fine Teas';
- the Chapels Cafe; and
- an Antiques and Artifacts Emporium.
I'm staggered to realise this only now, but we limited ourselves to the Cafe and did not check out the Emporium. Perhaps next time.
We are now stretching the limits of 'Perth' food, but during the ANZAC Long Weekend Mr. and Ms Foodie, Marmite and Midnight Oil, Madam Rabbit and Mr Blue (i.e. moi) spent a glorious Saturday at the Eagle Bay Brewery (unsurprisingly located in Eagle Bay, just past Dunsborough). It was good. Real good. Bette Midler wind beneath my wings type good.
This Easter Sunday, a party of 10 (a mix of some oldies and some newbies) visit the Monk Brewery on the Cafe Strip in Fremantle. Not quite searching for inner solace so much as beer, we discovered a monastery that deserves a second visit.. and a third.. and a fourth..
To celebrate the return of Mr and Ms Foodie (from an 8 week American/South American odyssey) and to mourn the departure of Rose Gold and the Rose Gold BF Experience (they are leaving to live in the UK for 12 months), what has been the standard group of 8 visited Big Els Latin American Fusion in Northbridge. Overall I think we'd probably agree it was more of a 'Medium Sized Els' experience
Our second visit to Brika. Wonderful food leads the way, though unfortunately we did notice a few areas where there is room for improvement..
Sticking with the Southey theme of late, for the final food review of the year a mix of the regulars check out a hidden gem South of the River, Gooseberries Cafe opposite Kensington Primary School.
