Check it out for some delicious ideas to spoil Dad…

The spicy Dad…
Sauma is a modern Indian, where you’re just as likely to order a butter chicken pie as a traditional curry. And what Dad doesn’t love a pie?! Read more here.

You don’t need to catch your dinner at Grab a Yabby. It’s a favourite with seafood lovers, particularly is you’re crazy about shell fish. Dad’s will love the “leave your table manners at the door” policy and can enjoy getting their hands dirty! Read more here.

The Old Piccadilly is an eclectic little eatery, off the beaten track amongst the Joondalup town houses. Their gourmet pizzas are delicious and make sure you save some tummy space for their decedent dessert pizzas! Read more here.
The early bird Dad…
Mason & Bird, next to Kalamunda library, is one of those “cheffy” brunch spots, where you just know there’s some seriously skilled peeps making your brekkie. This is a favourite of my Dad’s and we keep going back again and again! Read more here.
Timber Café has a rustic vibe, with a cool mural on the wall, just like something you’d find in Leederville or Mt Lawley. This tasty brunching spot is right smack in the middle of SOR suburbia. Read more here.
Lot One Kitchen is a newbie in the northern suburbs. It opened just a couple of months ago and has really hit the ground running with some lip-smackingly good brunch dishes. Read more here.

Take a trip to Rotto. Even if it’s not warm enough for swimming yet, there’s still loads to do on our little island paradise. Don’t forget the mandatory quokka selfie, pint at the Rottnest Hotel and sore bum from cycling. The gourmet hot dogs from The Lane are very yummy too! Read more here.
