it's been a while

i have not written on my blog for so long.
so many cafe, so little time!
i will be short and sweet... wait, i am ;)
oh dear my bad- sorry bout the lame humour :D

so, first of all... where to start... I know!
hush espresso in Fremantle. given that ive jsut started working in fremantle, i needed to find a good spot close to work. this has done the trick. recently opened, the coffee has NEVER disappointed me. except for the time when i walked in- sick as anything and having to work- and they had NO COFFEE. booo.
but GREAT atmosphere, lovely coffee, and the croissants are great there too.
Hush Espresso on Urbanspoon

have also checked out Cranked in Leederville. i have a small bias to this cafe because in it works Leo- the reason i am addicted to coffee. and yes, he's fully aware that this is the case. He used to work at Blax in Subi when i worked in Subi also, and would bring me coffee/ give me coffee. the nicest id ever had. therein began a blossoming relationship i have with coffee. Leo makes lovely coffee, and is a lovely guy. so yeah :)
one thing i must say that i also like about this cafe is the fact that they do table service- not many good cafes will take your order at the table. i appreciated this also :) although i havent eaten or had table service there lol.

also on my list of cafes ive been to is Sayers in Leederville. i love this place because theyre open early on a sunday morning and the coffee is GREAT. consistently good. great food here too- ive had breakfast here once, was really nice. and a different take on traditional cooked breakfast. also, their cakes look DEVINE.

next: tiger tiger- went in there expecting to get bad service, coz that's what i'd heard.
the service wasnt SHOCKING but it wasnt great. got two take away flat whites. were nice. i enjoyed them. they use Fiori i believe. it was too hot to sit inside tho. didnt matter, dad and i were on our way to the APPLE STORE.
where they recommended we try:
velvet espresso which i tried with my nana just the other day. the coffee was nice. ambience wasnt amazing, the guy who served me was rather arrogant. but the coffee was nice- too weak i believe i commented on twitter whist drinking it. nice japanese beside it tho :P

last two on my list:
gloria jeans in fremantle. i dont want to say bad things about this (other than what i already implied in the name) because i know the girl who's the barista here because i went to school with here and shes one of the finalists in the gloria jeans barista championships. but you can tell the quality (or rather lack thereof) by the fact that they have their own barista championships lol. yeah. so the coffee wasnt great. but the service wasnt bad.

next: exomod
again. this place is shocking. NEVER go here if you can avoid it. the decor is nice. its open late. but the coffee is BAD. my best friend had a hot chocolate- also bad. we shared a canneloni- well, i got worried because canneloni is italian and the place is run by asians.
enough said.

hope you havent missed me :P
