Every now and then you are at a restaurant, you look at the dessert menu and you feel totally uninspired. Same old chocolate mud cake, same old cheesecake. Boring.

So where do you go in Perth if you have a sweet tooth which needs some loving?

Greens, pool tables
Can you guess from the lights where we are?

[ADVERT]I Googled this exact question, and the same answer kept coming up: Greens and Co in Leederville.

It is central, on the train line and open seven days until midnight.

It is relaxed, full of couches and low coffee tables so you feel like you are popping into a friend's house for cake.

It looks cool too.

lanterns, Green and Co
Scores of paper lanterns create an ethereal space

While it is purportedly open for breakfast, lunch and dinner the non-sweet food is pretty much restricted to rolls and wraps. But you don't really come here for a sanger, you come here for this:

One of their amazing cakes

And this:

cake, Greens and Co
Are you drooling yet?

And this:

cake, Greens and Co
Man, I'm hungry...

With a cake fridge like this, you never need to go home again, and at $7.50 a piece you can nurse a coffee and cake for hours, while chillaxing the night away. There are a couple of pool tables and an old style video game as well.
