Did someone say… handmade gelato? Yes please! You won’t be able to miss Chi Cho Gelato’s electric purple coloured store located in Northbridge. It is home to some seriously delicious gelato churned fresh every day. Using seasonal produce, there are some interesting flavours to choose from with 20 flavours available at one time that are on rotation.

The Honey Cake

The Honeycake entered the Perth foodie scene with a humble stall at the Fremantle Markets. Since then, The Honeycake built a cult following and opened its flagship store 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! The popularity of the original Honeycake has lead to new flavours like Cacao or Pandan Coconut.

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 roll all their pretzels by their artisan bakers and are baked fresh to order. Make your own pretzels at home with their ‘Pretzel At Home Kit’. Top them with Pretzel Salt, or get creative with your own toppings!
