A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden

Cheap way to satisfy a sweet tooth
This is a small, bar type coffee and cake cafe near the end of an arcade in Mt Lawley. At first we did not want to go in as there were only bar type stools, however we were pleasantly surprised that these were comfortable. The coffee was just $3.50 which is very rare nowadays in a Perth cafe.
While only fitting about 25 people in here, and it being a very dark place, the pastries were all home made and the owner explained who made them for the Cafe. There was also a gluten free brownie available for those who are gluten intolerant, and a type of flatbread, though this quaint cafe had a constant stream of young people just coming in for the coffee.
Pastries in window
Although the range is not huge, the ones I have tasted were worth coming back for and on this occasion I had the Bogasha which is a Greek or Lebanese Filo pastry with a custard that is not over sweet. This is a pastry that I used to eat regularly however have not seen it for about 20 years, and was delighted to find it again.
