It’s not too often I get a friend visiting Perth who doesn’t like chocolate. (Probably that’s because I don’t let people be my friend unless they like chocolate!). And that means I’m pretty much guaranteed to take you to the Margaret River Chocolate Company in the Swan...

There’s no Starbucks in Perth … and I’ve heard one of the reasons for this is that our home-grown coffee shop chain, Dome, is so popular that the competition is too stiff. I have no idea if that’s really the case, but I’m proud just the same. The Dome coffee shop chain started...
