The Indiana Tea House is one of my favorite restaurants in Perth, not only for it’s wonderful food, service & décor, but the view over Cottesloe Beach is spectacular.
Indiana takes its name from “The Indiana Tea House”, a humble ice cream parlour built in 1910. Originally a pit stop for the playground that was Cottesloe Beach, “The Indiana Tea House” served folk dressed in modest bathing suits, caps and trunks from a small shack-like composite. In the 1920’s the venue and its expansive lawns played host to couples dancing cheek to cheek.
More recently Indiana was redeveloped in 1996 to the building we know today. Operating as a restaurant from this time onwards, the architect has created an amazing building that seems to rise effortlessly from the snow-white beach sand.
Today, Indiana forms a part of Chris Taylor’s ‘family’ of four landmark restaurant and function facilities. With all establishments boasting spectacular locations, Indiana is the only coastal property of the group. Unique in its own way, Indiana is a multipurpose venue. As a relaxed beach bistro or a beautiful exclusive function facility, Indiana is one of Perth’s premier restaurant caterers.
One of my cat’s brought this guy inside last night. It was very much alive, just scared. I have no idea what it is. I’ve looked up hundreds of Bug’s, Insect’s, Flying things, Moths, Flies even Beatles but have still found nothing the same as this guy. (3cm long x about 1cm wide, not including his wings)
We took him outside, so that he could fly away and not be tormented by the cat.
