My Breakfast

First up, sorry for our lack of posting we've been busy working and holiday-ing! We hope everyone had a super relaxing Easter- we definitely did!

So onto our latest breakfast adventure- West End Deli, Carr Street, West Perth with one of our best buddies in tow, Poached readers meet Penny! Now my previous dining experiences at West End have been mixed but this was AGES ago when the place first opened and I keep reading rave reviews and some of our friends are totally team West End Deli! So we thought we'd give another whirl and boy are we glad we did!

On this morning it was super packed and buzzing with a cute crowd of morning breakfast goers. The decor is just right, kinda of neutral but still interesting with rustic feel- think cement, exposed walls, big wooden tables. We totally dig the vibe!

We ended up bumping into a couple of friends of ours who were just finishing up their breakfast and one of them recommended I get the morcilla hash....eeeek I'm not sure if that adventurist...blood sausage kinda freaks me out but then I decided why the hell not! It did sounds rather appealing with pear, potato, bacon and egg with bread to dip, Ross ordered poached eggs with a side of the potted mushrooms and our breakfast guest Penny ordered the brioche with double cream, pistachio and chocolate sauce. We ordered a round of flat whites as well.

Yes, the coffee was super delicious- we went back for more! Our dishes came out and I was really impressed, first of all I noticed their mix and match vintage plates which I LOVED (well, i do own a vintage shop! haha) and they got props from me before I had even tasted the food! I must say my dish was quite tasty though I think I wussed out a little as I couldn't stop thinking about the whole 'blood-sausage' thing...I am lame I know! So I ended up having complete food envy of Penny's dish. It tasted spectacular and I am a huge fan of pistachios...yum yum yum! There wasn't a scrap left on her plate and I couldn't blame her. We didn't hear much from Ross he was busy chowing down on what he described as mushroom heaven. I'll just take his word for it...haha!

The service was pretty good considering the number of people in the cafe but honestly we were too busy chatting away to notice if was actually anything but! I ended up buying a baguette on our way out because their bread was SO delicious and they baked it in house plus I enjoyed wrapping it up cute! I think we will be back to West End wasn't Sayers or Cantina but it was pretty enjoyable!

P.S Our breakfast guest is actually one of Perth's most talented photographers and promises to email me some way cooler images of our dishes and the venue! So stay tuned for an update!

The Verdict

Coffee 4/5
The Eggs (the meal!) 3.5/5
Service 3.5/5
Atmosphere 4/5

Overall 15/20

Would we go again?
Yes, even if it was just for their delicious coffee and baguettes!
