We have had such a fantastic week touring around Perth with Jelena and Claire of We Love Perth, thank you both for showing us some of the highlights of your home town! Of course there is plenty more to see so be sure to bookmark We Love Perth! Congratulations to Sarah A who is the lucky winner of the $50 Ruck Rover Gift Voucher - happy shopping! Thanks again Jelena and Claire! - Jenny x

It’s been so lovely hanging out with you this week. We thought we’d finish the week off with our favourite non-meal of the day – afternoon tea! We like it so much we’ve even dedicated a section to it on We Love Perth. There are so many scrumptious places to get baked goods popping up in Perth, but here we’ve selected our top three picks!

Absolutely delectable French pastries of the sweet and savoury variety are baked fresh at Choux Café, deep in the leafy suburb of Swanbourne. Perfect for filling up the picnic basket, then heading down to the beach, or up to King’s Park. Feed the belly as well as your eyes!

Bright and tasty pastries at Choux Café in Swanbourne.

Although it’s located in a small (though beautiful) building that used to be a corner store, Lincolns 102 is jam packed with incredible sweet treats! There’s so much choice we are often tempted to sample one while we are there and take another home with us. Behind the scenes is one of the best bakers in Perth, and she churns out sponge cakes, tarts, gingerbread and all sorts of deliciousness. Oh my, it’s just the best range of old favourites and exciting, new ideas!

While Jelena has a sweet tooth, Claire cannot resist savoury items for afternoon tea! This is where West End Deli delivers, with homemade pies and sausage rolls, as well as baguettes served with butter, on offer. Mmmm, how scrumptious!

Now you can have your cake and eat it too!  Thanks for having us – we hope to see you over at We Love Perth more often!

Happy Friday!
