Chapels on Whatley...



Reflections of the Maylands railway station in the window of Chapels on Whatley. After perusing Chapels website we set off to continue the quest to discover and share the diversity of eateries in Perth. Since it was built 100 years ago as a haberdashery this building has been used for everything from local greengrocer to funeral parlour.. now cafe and tea emporium it was well worth the trip. Surrounded by exotic colour I threw caution to the wind and instead of my usual poached eggs on toast I devoured every mouthful of the French toast/caramel sauce/banana and cream, centre stage below, and left with a tin of Chapels Silk Oolong tea, not only delicious but a metabolism booster also.. win, win :) Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. when we lived in the middle of Africa I loooved going into the haberdashery store, who agrees we should have a haberdashery revival :)

  3. Oh my goodness, that looks delicious! Put a little Nutella on there and I would have been hooked for sure. Yes, I agree about the haberdashery. Growing up in Illinois, there was a haberdashery known as the Busy Bee that I just loved. As kid I was mesmerized by the ceiling fans that were all linked together on one long belt. I also like the creaky floors.

  8. I gained three pounds just looking at that meal. Fortunately, I am a big boy and there is plenty of places for me to hide them. (Quite the collage, Grace.)

  16. What fabulous reflections you have here. You are not going to believe this but when I saw the London Walks logo in your sidebar, I almost flipped. I went on everyone they offered all of those years I visited London over and over and over again. I wrote them a letter just now asking them about my favorite guide, Richard Bartlett. My family friends, and I used to stay at his home when we would go across the pond. I asked if he was still with them. I was so tickled to see the “London Walks” button in your sidebar. It is indeed a small world. genie

  19. That collage is magnificent! I'd say that tea would be needed after that breakfast! Whew! Our President Harry S. Truman was a haberdasher person. (Or something like that!)
