Is there anything better than starting off the day with a really good brunch? When you’re living a busy modern lifestyle, the first meal of the day is often the first thing that gets sacrificed. That’s why we’re big fans of, whenever possible, finding some time to slow down and really enjoy a great brunch.

Taking an ethical and vegan approach to their menu, Noble Perth, the newest restaurant in Subiaco, is certainly making a splash in the Perth food scene.
