Things I Love Thursday: favourite Perth breakfasts

Things I Love Thursday

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I for one, agree wholeheartedly.

Breakfast is by far my favourite meal, and I’ll happily eat breakfast food at any time of the day (or night).

This year I’m one of the bloggers who will be part of the fun for Eat Drink Perth. March is the month for food fans in the city, with restaurants, cafes and bars around Perth, Northbridge, East Perth and West Perth participating in the events.

For this Things I Love Thursday I thought I’d take a look at some of my favourite Perth breakfast spots.

Toast, East Perth is one of my go-to spots. Located right on the water at Claisebrook Cove, this sunny breakfast, brunch and lunch spot serves breakfast options all day, starting from 7.00am.

The coffee is great, and I find it hard to ever order anything other than their fantastic Eggs Benedict!

Jean Pierre Sancho Boulangerie and Patisserie is a stand out for Perth Francophiles who need their croissant and cafe au lait fix daily. Their chocolate and banana croissants are buttery, flaky, sweet perfection.

Just try to say no to their beautiful Eclairs or Macarons, even at breakfast. I dare you!

Tiger Tiger

Tiger Tiger probably doesn’t need an introduction. Their reputation for fantastic food and the perfect caffeine fix goes without saying. I’ve been heading to Tiger Tiger for lazy Saturday breakfasts for years. A recent revelation was their freshly baked apple and cinnamon muffins.

It’s a fantastic spot tucked in a laneway off Murray Street, that’s popular with shoppers and cyclists alike. On a Saturday, head down early to be sure you snag a seat.

Bocelli Cafe is one of my favourite pit-stops for coffee in Forrest Place – consistently good every time, and I admit I’m a bit of a fan of their muffins and banana bread!

Great for when I’m on the go, especially on a busy work day.

City Farm on the run

And let’s not forget my work day favourite, City Farm Cafe. I battled a mild addiction to their spinach and feta muffins … I’m sorry to say I’m still not fully rehabilitated ;)

They make an excellent coffee (using Rubra beans) too – mandatory for me, Monday to Friday.

This is, of course, a mere snapshot of all the fantastic brekkie eats around town, and not a comprehensive list by any means!

What are your favourite breakfast spots in Perth?

I hope you’ll be keen to catch some of the Eat Drink Perth events around the city this March. There’s lots on offer, from free family events, food tours, food and wine tastings to gourmet dinners and special offers for lunch and dinner around the city. The program is now available online at Eat Drink Perth!

Look out for me in the Eat Drink Perth Program in the STM liftout in the Sunday Times this weekend.

    Finally went and tried Toast with Mum on Saturday. Really sweet little place, nice atmosphere, super busy but still pleasant, and the most AMAZING baked eggs with chorizo… still Dukaning, I contented myself with nibbling off a corner of the turkish bread it came with, but that bread was amazing too. So, so fresh. I burnt my tongue in my haste to eat it all.
