A day off to brunch.

While I've been on maternity leave, my husband has been working incredibly hard to provide for our family. Two jobs. Five days of 9 to 5 managing a music store and four nights of gigs a week. That's a whole bunch of work. Sophie and I get to spend time with him on Mondays and Fridays during the day, but he's off to work those nights. He doesn't get a full day and night at home.

AND he does it all because he loves us. We're super lucky.

Before Sophie was born we went out for meals a lot. It's one of our things. We love good food and we love other people preparing it for us. Since Soph arrived, I've perfected the art of eating quickly. I reckon I could finish an entire meal in five minutes. Our little one isn't at a stage where she appreciates fine food and wine and taking one's time to enjoy both. She's also on her best behaviour in the morning.

So now breakfast has become our thing. It's quick and cheap (ish) and delicious.

We're slowly working our way through the breakfast places in Perth. We've had some super duper ones and a couple were meh. Standout places that I've been to with friends but not yet with Court: Sayers in Leederville, The Attic in Fremantle and The Kiosk at Floreat Beach.

We'll get there. We're making breakfast our mission.


  1. I love going out for breakfast, but it is such a rare occurrance. Maybe a couple of times a year? But I do like a good Eggs Benedict. I would be interested to hear your top recommendations in Northern suburbs. Unfortunately we'd have to go weekends when it's busy, which sucks a tad.

  2. Northern suburbs is tough... My friend and I were just discussing yesterday how there doesn't seem to be anything good up our way. I'll have a bit more of a think!

  3. A friend just told me the Naked Fig in Swanbourne has a really good area for bubs/toddlers - and hers is a really active one. Haven't tried it yet but plan to.

  4. Oh yeah, I went there the other day for lunch and it was great! The food is incredible and although we didn't make use of the floor by putting Sophie down, it was huge and spacious. I'll be back there in a heartbeat - the food was THAT delicious.
