Mary Street Bakery

We went o Mary Street Bakery, which is the new cafe replacing Soto Espresso.  I must admin Soto had a cement and cold feel to it, and didn’t appeal to a lot of people.  The new look and feel of this cafe is warm, they put wood on walls and changed the decor – their floor is still polished concrete so it gets loud in there when there are people talking and their music is too loud. Ordering my medium machiatto and am looking forward to it, this time I’m out with my wife and she also orders a slice to go with our...

Camera Gear as a Photographer

I wanted to have a chat about the professional photography equipment that I use as I get asked this question regularly. Being a professional photographer in Perth the cost of a camera isn’t as much of a problem to me as these are my work tools. In general when I shoot in a café it’s natural light, so I don’t add in any flash or artificial light source, nor bounce any light of reflectors etc. My camera is a Canon 1Dx, which is the top of the range latest model from Canon, with a full frame sensor and 21Megapixels. In most cases I shoot...

Sherbet Cafe – Long vs Mini Machs

I did a little comparison to show how much coffee vs milk in a mini or long mach.  You can see that the volume of milk is significantly bigger in a long mach, hence the “long”.  Still in a glass, so you can see the coffee and milk ratio. And now with milk in it: And for the individual shot of the Long Mach: And another shot… couldn’t help myself:   Check out Sherbet Bake Shop. As usual, coffee was sensational here at Sherbet.  No matter when I walk through the door it’s always buzzing with great atmosphere...

Long Mach at Lincolns 102 Cafe

A couple quick shots of my coffee at Lincoln 102 Cafe in Highgate.  I must admit the coffee was exceptional, well extremely well, temperature was spot on. I couldn’t fault if I tried.   Coffee like food tastes better when it’s presented well, and a touch of latte art makes all the difference, it doesn’t take too much effort to do this pattern, it is the most common one applied to top of coffees but makes all the difference.

The Daily, Swanbourne Cafe – Review

The Daily, Swanbourne Cafe – Review

At “The Daily” at Swanbourne shops today. A new place that opened last year (2011) and a very good contribution to this area. This strip needed a good coffee shop, and “The Daily Espresso Bar” answered. The Dancing Goat is across the railway from these guys, but it’s healthy to have 2 or a few top spots close together, this way you have a good selection to go to when you need a great coffee. The atmosphere in this place is very trendy, cool, with exposed bricks, light wood coloured book cases (crates) and a very cool service bar....
