Lemon Lane

Hi guys! It's me again!!! We've been very efficient lately and we plan to keep this up *cross fingers*, so here's another entry! 

Last Thursday, before Tiff came over to my house to study, we met at Claremont for lunch. We decided to try  one of the many cafes in Claremont that we've never dined at before. That was how we ended up dining at Lemon Lane.

I did some research about Lemon Lane and I found out some really interesting stuff! Lemon Lane is part of Lemon Cafes Pty Ltd. Lemon started out as Lemon Espresso (also in Claremont) and then came Lemon Lane (Claremont), Lemon Station (Cottesloe) and Lemon Espresso @ Hkew Alpha (hKew Alpha business precinct at Perth domestic airport). Wow, I didn't know that it was such a big enterprise. You can visit their website - for more information about Lemon Pty Ltd! 

So anyway, after peering into the display cabinet for a very long time (Tiff and I are known for our indecisiveness), we finally decided on what to order.

We sat outside again - I really like sitting outside. 
And we sat on high stols at a high table! Haha, 2 short girls on very high stools!

Love the graffiti on the wall! 

Hello, men in cafe posing for a photo! LOL

What I really like about Australia (and especially in areas like Claremont and Subiaco) is that people make an effort to dress up! Look at the lady and her son, they look so cute together. Really love his outfit!
It's nice how everyone always look so sharp and put together. 

So anyway, the both of us ordered lattes, but our lattes had different foam designs!

I didn't use to be a coffee person but after 3 years in Perth, I've begun to enjoy drinking coffee! The main reason is because the coffee in Perth is just SO good.

 We also ordered a ham and cheese croissant. It was alright, not fantastic. I've tasted better ones at other cafes in Perth.

The other thing we ordered was the Roast Beef Sandwich. 
But before showing you the photo of the Roasted Beef Sandwich, I have to tell you the story behind it:
After our food arrived, Tiff and I started taking photos of/with the food!

Here's Tiff with the Ham Cheese Croissant

And me with the Roast Beef Sandwich

So right after that picture was taken, the WORST THING EVER happened!
To my horror, the baguette started to slide off the plate!!! So naturally, I tried to catch it with my other hand but it bounced off my hand and landed on the floor! :( :( :(
In true fabandfamished fashion, Tiff and I started laughing and she had to hop off her high stool to pick it up because it fell onto her side. While she was doing so, I was thinking to myself, "CRAP, I've just dropped $6 worth of sandwich (the whole thing cost $12) and it cannot be consumed anymore!"
But surprisingly, when Tiff picked it up, the Beef Sandwich was still complete! It fell on its butt/base/bottom and NOTHING fell out of the baguette!!! 
So we decided that we should just clean it's bottom and eat it still. 
So here's me cleaning the baguette.

Tiff suggested that we share the dirty half because she didn't mind. That was really sweet of her! (:
However, in the end I decided that I should eat the dirty half because well, I was the one who dropped it after all! 
 So after cleaning it, we ate the sandwich and it was DELICIOUS! (: The baguette was so nice and soft and the beef was very tender! I don't regret eating it at all!

Please don't judge us for wanting to eat the baguette even though it dropped on the floor. It was very expensive so it would have been such a waste not to eat it! LOL. I hope you don't think it was disgusting, we choose to refer to it as professionalism haha

Here's the Roast Beef Sandwich by the way - the relish that came with it was very nice too. It tasted like some kind of chutney.

 Yup, so that's all for Lemon Lane, I hope you guys enjoyed reading it! (:

Ham and Cheese Croissant: $8.50
Most sandwiches: $12

The Meal:
The sandwich and coffee were really good. But the croissant was just average.

The Ambience:
 It was nice to sit on high chairs and people watch (:

The Service:

Friendly staff, we didn't really need much service so it's kind of hard to rate it.

Sorry, my ratings are damn boring and average today. But I guess that it's because Lemon Lane is a nice cafe, but it's not very fantastic. I would go back there, but it's not on the top of my list.

Bye guys! Take care, and have a blessed week ahead! (:

Lots of Love, 


  1. The coffee looks delicious.... I could only wish that Singapore had coffee like that... Starbucks can't match up to Aust's coffee

  2. Yes I know! The coffee over here is just generally good everywhere! Very sad that I'm going back soon, won't get to drink the coffee here anymore!
