Beaches... and cafes.....!


I was lucky enough to have a quick coffee with a friend yesterday in my favourite Cottesloe cafe. The thing about Beaches Cafe is that driving by you might not even give it a second look, but if you take the time to stop you'll find that it's a gem of a spot. For starters it's right across the road from one of the best beaches in Perth (show you tomorrow) and check out that menu..good stuff!
It's definitely not 'posh' but it certainly is trendy.  Pet friendly with bowls of water placed around the outside area, it's popular with locals who walk or ride their bikes, and visitors alike..did I mention that the coffee is delicious, most important..I was just sorry that I didn't have time for a second cup.. I hope that you're keeping warm over there in the Northern Hemisphere, keep the thought that spring is on it's way. Happy Thursday, take care. P.s. when we win (positive thinking) the lotto, we're definitely moving to Cottesloe, hah!

  5. Why hasn't anyone invented instant teleporting yet? I'd *love* to be there right now - such atmosphere in your captures! Here we have a cold front moving in, brrr. (PS So true, despite its history, the battlefield is a beautiful spot now! Savvy bride that was:)

  7. It was -21˚C here this morning so it was wonderful to see your summery shots - people actually wearing shorts and not multiple layers of clothing!

  9. My head would be spinning looking at that vast menu. If it has good coffee, a great beach view and it's pet friendly then it's for me!

  12. Ah, you have a subtle visual message: not Beaches but Aches.

    It's bloody cold up here, if you must know.

  15. Look at all of those portrait opportunities missed! You could have walked up to the barista or to any of the girls at that table. Courage, Grace, courage.

    When I win the lottery, I will come for a visit and will travel first class. I flew in coach in 2003 from New York to Sydney and it was about as uncomfortable as I can remember.

  16. Wow! How can you ever decide what to eat off the menu - it's HUGE!!! You better hope like hell it never becomes 'trendy' or you won't be able to get anywhere near it!!

  17. A lottery win would be good Grace but looks like you're living the dream without it. Cheers J.
