It makes sense that most major cities were founded on a river. It held strategic importance, was a source of food and allowed easier transportation. In Perth it was no different and hence we have this North vs South thing going on. "Where do you live?" "South of the River" "Oh..." So I was a South of the River boy growing up, quite liked it actually. But after marrying and starting a family, we started North, probably because my wife's family was there. Either way, its been the best move we made. North of the River holds the larger population, stones throw away from the best beaches and plenty of hospitality venues abound. So this blog is dedicated to all the great cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, barbers and basically small business owners in the western suburbs of Perth. Disclaimer: No payment or commission is asked of the owners for the review. I'm not a journalist getting paid a wage for this writing, I simply wish to promote the hard working owners of small business that probably spend more time working in the business than on the business.
