Cape Lavender – Margaret River, Western Australia


Actually didn’t know this place existed but I wanted to check out the place after finding it on Google. Not very popular yet ‘cos lack of publicity. The lady owner Bev (If I can remember her name clearly)  is not very well verse with social media amd even her website is not up also. But she’s getting the hang of Facebook now, at least her page is up. 🙂 I don’t usually write about stores or shops but Bev is really very passionate about her products and she and her staff/friend loves making them almost every morning. She use to … Continue reading Cape Lavender – Margaret River, Western Australia

Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery – Margaret River, Western Australia


Spotted this place on Google maps and I can’t believe I have not tried this place before from all my previous visits to WA!

I was so surprise to see they have such awesome views of the vineyard, pond and greenery, just sets you in the mood for good food and drinks! Check out the many pictures I took. Rating: 5/5. Full marks for everything! Taste: Really very good. The wings are not seasoned through though, but the blue cheese mayo … Continue reading Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery – Margaret River, Western Australia

Cottage Cafe @ The Berry Farm – Margaret River, Western Australia


Was here in 1995 and 2008 and this time I finally am writing about this place. Reason because I haven’t started this blog back then. ;P. This place changed a lot since and a lot more well laid out and more spacious. Few things didn’t change though; that is the freshness of the food and the company of the birds. 🙂 This is a must-go location for a nice brunch and buying back in house made relishes, jams, ciders, vinegars, fruit ports, friut wines, etc., for family and friends! Rating: 5/5. Taste: Taste of nature. And the sauces and relishes … Continue reading Cottage Cafe @ The Berry Farm – Margaret River, Western Australia

Settlers Tavern – Margaret River, Western Australia


This is one of the hottest tavern in Margaret River region. My second time here and just love the food and beers. They have ciders on the tap and they are just awesome. Portions are huge, you can order 2 entree and share with 3 pax. I believe the band plays on weekends… but not my type of genre… Nevertheless, this is a place to hang out for dinner and drinks when you’re in Margaret River! Free and ample parking! Rating: 4.5/5. Taste: Food is nice, but not something I would scream about. The calamari’s batter is not crispy… hence … Continue reading Settlers Tavern – Margaret River, Western Australia

Emu Point Cafe – Albany, Western Australia


When you’re in Albany, this is a place to visit. Not just because of the serenity of the place, but also for what this cafe has to offer. My 3rd time here and this time I was determine to try their food ‘cos previously, we had our meals elsewhere. Truly, the food is really good and at least up to standards for me. Rating: 4.5/5. A tad pricey if not a full 5. Taste: Really good. Fresh and hot. Water is free on the house in bottles. Portion: Above average. Small eaters may wanna share. Service: Very good. They cleared … Continue reading Emu Point Cafe – Albany, Western Australia

Riverside Roadhouse – Bannister, Western Australia


Whenever I drive down to Albany from Perth, I would stop by this place for their homemade burgers and soups. They have loads of pies and sausage rolls too. This petrol kiosk basically is a place for people commuting along the Albany Highway to take a break and refill their tanks and stomachs. This trip, I stopped here again to have my favourite burger and to pay my visit to Andy and Robbo as well. Rating: 4/5. Taste: Burgers are awesome. Homemade soups are awesome too! Latte is a let down though. Portion: Burger is big. It fills me up. … Continue reading Riverside Roadhouse – Bannister, Western Australia

Jean Pierre Sancho Cafe – Perth City, Australia


Was here on my second day in Perth after my grueling first day at the coffee school. It was a Sunday so many places were closed. I spotted this place while driving and all really by chance. So I parked the rented car on the side of the road and went into the cafe to place my order. To my surprise, this cafe has many awards for their bakery and also some business of the year for 2012. Rating: 4/5. Taste: Pretty good but could be better if they can heat up for us. The raisin and croissant were good! … Continue reading Jean Pierre Sancho Cafe – Perth City, Australia

Have loads of backlogs to update hence will be juggling this blog, sleepwithroy.wordpress.com and tourwithroy.wordpress.com. So please be patient with me!

Food is really good and compliments … Continue reading Blue Rock Cafe – Perth, Australia
