I went into Leederville with my niece today. It's impossible for me to go to Leederville without popping into Francois for coffee and pastries! Francois has been around since 1998 and is the best French Patisserie in Perth as far as I'm concerned, believe me I have done the research! It's in a car park just off Newcastle St. and relies on it's reputation to be found. It is an elegant little cafe with a very French look. Gild mirrors, small tables, bentwood chairs, glass cabinets filled with delectable hand made delights, sweet and savoury tarts, le pain of all types. It didn't take me long to become addicted to their almond croissants and these days my order is almost always 'un cafe noir avec le lait chaud au cote et un croissant d'almonde s'il vous plait'......It's so hard to restrict to just the one!!!
