The Honey Cake

The Honey Cake built its cult following in Perth with a small store at the Fremantle markets followed by its flagship store opening at the State Buildings. What is Honey Cake you might ask? Well to put it simply, the cake is comprised of lashings of caramel crème between thin layers of baked honey cake, topped with crushed walnuts and honey flavoured crumbs. YUM!

Pretzels are traditionally considered a savoury item, but this sweet little shop in a cute pink shipping container offers both sweet AND savoury flavours… WINNING! Why not try both? Pretzel hand rolls their own pretzels in store and is baked fresh to order.

Superstar waffles in Northbridge shares its arcade with a couple of other favourite dining spots including Franco Forte and Is Donburi. This is the place to go for fluffy waffles made-to-order with a variety of decadent flavor combinations. Open till late most nights for some sweet treats and hot drinks.
Ivy & Jack – Panna Cotta
You don’t have to travel too far for a great dessert. Pop over to Ivy & Jack our restaurant next door to try the Passion fruit & Coconut Panna Cotta. It’s got the perfect amount of wobble – an important feature of all great panna cottas – served with refreshing caramelised pineapple and coconut tuile.
Mary Street Bakery – Doughnuts

The Mary Street Bakery dynasty has been a popular institution amongst Perth-ites for years. Serving their house made delectable doughnuts; it’s a winner for sure! Our favourite is the Lemon Maple Pecan doughnut. There are two locations within walking distance to the city centre to choose from – QV1 Plaza and Allendale.
Koko Black – Belgian Hot Chocolate

Koko Black is one of the heavy hitters in the chocolate game. If you’re after quality artisanal chocolate in the city this is the place. You can’t go past their signature Belgian Hot Chocolate. It’s a rich, it’s chocolatey and it’s everything you could want and more in a hot choccy. Best of all, Koko Black is a short 3-minute walk from the hotel.
