Ah, winter. Gone are the days of driving along the coast, frolicking by Cottesloe beach and dancing outdoors on warm nights. Winter in Perth is very much here, and you may very well be thinking to yourself… what to do now?
So, we have compiled a list of the most mouth-watering places to get your dessert fix in Perth this winter. We know that everybody has different taste buds but trust us when we say that any of these desserts will have you drooling!
Did somebody say New York style CHUNKY cookies? Congratulations, you have been heard. You won’t know how to choose between these melt-in-your-mouth delights, with an array of flavours from cookies and cream to apple crumble. Our personal favourite is the chunky ice-cream sanga. Seriously, this place is game-changing.
Yes, this one goes out to our northies. Ever thought of combining white brownie slice, M&Ms, ice cream and chocolate sauce? Well, Café Elixir did. Behold, the M&M Cookie Pie. You might even indulge in some Deep-Fried Oreos or the renowned Elixir Sundae. Can we order all three?
Muffle & Co
These are some epic treats. Muffle & Co provides the goods with warm dough wrapped around fresh fruits and ice cream. Alternatively, you could opt for a more savoury option with cheese and cured meat. Be sure to try one of their signature desserts: Mango Sticky Rice, Banoffee Pie or Daifuku. We are drooling.
If you have not had a Mop Donut, have you really lived? These donuts feature creamy flavoured centres. Think Mars Bar, Mint Aero and Oreo Smash. Like that wasn’t enough, Mop also provides… ALCOHOL INFUSED DONUTS. Not a donut person? Try their freek shakes for some whacky and wonderful calories.
If Whisk does not have you salivating, we do not know what will. Step into dessert heaven and try the original croinut sandwich filled with salted caramel sauce, salted caramel gelato and topped with fresh cream. Even better, on your way out grab one of Whisk’s take home tubs so you can indulge at home as well!
Ootong & Lincoln
This one goes out to our Pertharians in need of gluten free or vego options. With less flour comes more chocolate in their gluten free brownies, stuffed with big chocolate chunks and macadamia. Looking for a vego option? Indulge in the chocolate chai pancakes, featuring chocolate soil, whipped vanilla bean mascarpone and cherry compote.
Theo & Co Pizzeria
East Victoria Park
Pizza is a sometimes food. But we cannot get enough of Theo & Co Pizzeria’s dessert pizzas. We suggest you try their award-winning dessert pizza, Mudhoney. A rich chocolate batter topped with icing sugar, chocolate pieces, vanilla ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce and honey… sounds healthy enough to us.
Eat Drink Raw
If you are looking for vegan desserts in Perth, you should look no further. Eat Drink Raw has countless tasty treats, including their Raw vegan salted caramel tart, lemon slice, hazelnut choc slice, mint slice… the possibilities are endless. Not to mention their signature Raw vegan Snickers bar.
For cake and macaron lovers, you cannot go wrong with Fiorentina. This place seriously makes you feel like you have stepped into a Gossip Girl inspired high-tea. Make your life a bit sweeter and indulge in a slice of their giant cannoli cake or some chocolate macarons.
The Little Banksia
Nestled in South Perth, The Little Banksia’s warm and cosy décor will have you reaching for the dessert menu. With an array of pastries and cakes, it is the perfect place to satisfy your sweet-tooth alongside a cup of coffee. We suggest you try their buttermilk pancakes with caramelised banana, parfait, candied popcorn and passionfruit gel with salted caramel.
These places seriously take #foodporn to a whole new level. Get out and try them this winter!
