LOVE : City of Perth – July school holidays – where to eat & promos

Apartment living with kids means we venture out a lot. Having the city at our doorstep,  we are privy to all that is happening and often frequent various eateries. With this, it gives me great pleasure to share some of our favourite places whom are also offering some pretty cool kid friendly ideas and fantastic discounts these July school holidays.

Let’s work our way from the top to the heart.

The Botanical Café is located in Kings Park and features the freshest local West Australian produce. Indoor and outdoor seatings boasting spectacular views over the City and Swan River. There is ample parking and great pram access too. Free WiFi.

– why –

We spend much of our time in Kings Park, enjoying the views, greenery and grass areas. It feels like you are so far but yet so close. We play tennis, kick a soccer ball around, blow bubbles. We have some of our favourite times here bringing it back to basics. Having Botanical Cafe and its top quality menu is super handy.

WHISK Creamery is an artisanal dessert family business run by Giulio Nelva and sons, Davide and Simon. Family history in dessert and pastry-making dates back to a small town in Italy called Aosta. This long line of pastry chefs started with Giulio’s father, Carlo, in 1949 just after World War II.

In 2013, family migrated to Perth. Their passion lead them to opening WHISK Creamery in Subiaco (Rokeby Road), followed by a store in North bridge (William Street).
