Babooshka is a hot spot where you can treat yourself to a variety of classic dishes and some more interesting alternatives too.

Dukkah eggs and watermelon salad are among the stranger choices. For the traditionalist, the Tsar’s Breakfast is basically all you could ever want in a big fry-up.

The drinks share a similar ethos. The popular Buddha’s Tears tea is served in a beautiful clear-glass teapot, accompanied by a little countdown clock, letting you know the very moment your tea is perfectly brewed (five minutes).

This precision carries over to the coffee from Blacklist Coffee Roasters in South Perth. The extensive drinks list also features smoothies, pressed juices and a selection of gourmet milkshakes.

Being off the main strip is also a serious plus for this place. The courtyard has a chilled vibe, and the takeaway window caters to the busier working folk, serving a range of homemade cakes, bagels, treats and sandwiches.

After you’ve had your fill, head to the adjacent Safari’s Record Shack, Beans and Bunches or StreetX for some shopping.
