I was pretty excited to touch down in Perth the other day and get my long awaited dose of West Coast sunshine. (Melbourne, I love you, but this whole 2-degree-thing really isn’t fun)
In addition to seeking out some much need vitamin D, there were also a few cafes that were on my hit list. Two of these were newbies that I’ve never been to before, and two of them were tried and true favourites that I hit up all the time.
Here’s a quick rundown of what I had.
Let’s start with the newbies…
1. Flora and Fauna – Northbridge
This place is ridiculously cute. It’s a small space in Northbridge, tucked away down a laneway. They do beautiful slices and other sweet treats, and all of their main dishes have a floral, colourful flare to them.
The cafe has plenty of outside seating but less space indoors – so possibly not the best brunch location if the weather is a bit dicey.
I had the chia protein bowl – a great option if you want something light and fruity.
2. The Coin Laundry – North Perth
This cafe is a newbie on the Perth scene. It’s located a couple of doors down from one of my favourite coffee and cake haunts – Fiorentina.
I ordered the pumpkin smash and it was delish, but I was SERIOUSLY tempted by their salted caramel jelly pop tart breakfast dish (what will they think of next?!).
The old favourites…
3. Piccolo’s Corner – Leederville
I LOVE the avocado smash at Piccolo’s.
The cafe itself is one of my absolute favourite breakfast spots in Perth and the outdoor section is the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee in the winter sunshine.
4. The Cool Room – Fremantle
This place is a tucked away gem. It’s quirky looking and located just behind the netball courts on Leach Hwy – in the more suburban part of Fremantle.
Their portions are generous and this haloumi bruschetta is heaven on a plate.
