The Bodhi Tree and Bookstore, Mount Hawthorn

The Bodhi Tree Cafe in Mount Hawthorn

Is it a bookshop or cafe? I pick bookshop. There wasn’t even a menu. That does not mean it is not a good place to go for a drink and catchup, quite the opposite. It is nice to find somewhere a bit different, with a bit of character. I enjoyed the eclectic mix of tables and chairs placed among the bookshelves, and mugs that seem like they were bought from the op shop across the road.

I find it hard to distinguish the very good from the excellent coffee. Any cafe that has return customers must satisfy many of them.

The Bodhi Tree Cafe in Mount HawthornIn these places I never know if I can have a look at the books on the shelves while enjoying a coffee, it is very tempting, but may be frowned upon. I went with my four-year-old, who I had to hold back from helping himself to the shelves of books.

Aurora Pizza & Pasta Review

Aurora Pizza & Pasta, Mount Hawthorn

This is what I call authentic Italian pizza, much better than the stuff you get in Italy! (and yes, I have been there) The ingredients are fresh and generous. The staff are very friendly, and the prices very reasonable. The Santa Lucia is one of our favourites – tomato, cheese, capsicum, pepperoni, mushroom, fresh tomato, ham, olives and anchovies. We always get the pick up deal with two family pizzas. We have not tried their pasta dishes.

Royal Thai Restaurant Review

Royal Thai Restaurant, Mt Hawthorn

Good Thai should not be hard to find, but for some reason in Perth it is. The Royal Thai Restaurant in Mount Hawthorn, just up Oxford St from the main hub of Leederville, opposite the Oxford Hotel. Royal Thai serves excellent quality Thai food, which is not always easy to find in Perth. The husband and wife team David and Tuan provide fantastic authentic Thai cuisine with a warm friendly service.

Azure Restaurant Review

Azure Restaurant Lounge & Patisserie

A casual yet cool dining experience. The Azure Restaurant is located at The Mezz shopping centre, facing onto Scarborough Beach Rd in Mt Hawthorn. It has a bright and breezy feel, with tables and chairs spilling onto the pavement. Owner and chef Christian Fogliani has many years of experience on the international culinary scene. The menu would be described as Modern Australian and Mediterranean. For dessert, there will definitely be something to tempt you from the patisserie counter.
