Ploy Thai

Ploy Thai has been part of the Eighth Avenue, Maylands scenery for a while now. It became a favourite of many locals as soon as the owners made the move from their previous home in Subiaco and have been pulling consistent crowds ever since. It’s a fairly inconspicuous restaurant, melding in with the other cafes, […]

Swallow Bar

In early March it was a long weekend in Perth. I so love long weekends! The divine loveliness of that extra day off – like a special bonus, where sleep ins are the order of the day 🙂 Now on the Sunday of the long weekend GG and I had headed along to Lamonts in […]

Smoult’s Continental Deli

Only a short post here, but this is basically just an ode to the magic of Smoult’s Continental Deli’s basil pesto. I don’t know what magic ingredient they include in their recipe, but I swear it is addictive. Some beautiful bread (Toasted Turkish bread, fresh baguette, even a loaf of Tip Top would work) and […]

Sherbet Cake Shop

So after lunch at Mrs S with my sister the other day, we decided we would extend our Maylands food safari and wandered around the corner to Sherbet. Sherbet has established a solid reputation for delicious cupcakes or if you are looking for something bigger, some very impressive looking cakes. We’d already eaten lunch, so it […]

Mrs S

I grew up in Maylands. It’s a lovely suburb, right near the river, close to the city and in recent times there’s been plenty of work done to trend’ify the Eighth Avenue cafe strip. One of the new additions that has developed a fab reputation for itself is right on the corner and it’s called […]

Old Bakery on Eighth Avenue

After staying at Burswood for a night, seemed like a nice idea to grab some breakfast on the way home. We tried our luck at the Old Bakery on Eighth Avenue in Maylands. Was really impressed with the place, and not just because it had belonged to my family many many moons ago. Perhaps the […]
