Market Juicery

Hidden away in Leederville you’ll find the Market Juicery. This health conscious store offers fresh juices and smoothies as well as raw treats and healthy snacks. The first of our juices was the Tropical Coco, a mix of coconut, mango, pineapple, coyo and milk of your choice, we went with almond. This was the perfect smoothie for a hot day, refreshing, a little creamy, a little tart and deliciously passionfruit-y. The coconut snow on top just added to that cooling feeling. We also tried the berry green, the beginners green smoothie if you will. It doesn’t look green, and the berry is the dominant flavour, but it has enough kale and celery to get some goodness. It also has banana, blueberries and coconut water for some creamy sweetness. If you’re not into green smoothies and want to give them a go? This is the smoothie for you. Market Juicery is a lovely little spot for a fresh and healthy juice and a snack. When you’re next in Leederville we sure to have a look. Be …

Gusto Gelato

While we love Leederville, we don’t love parking in Leederville and on a stinking hot Perth day we were in a mood that only gelato could fix. We headed straight to Gusto Gelato, tantalised by the prospect of small batch Italian Gelato. The man behind this delciousness is Sean Lee who gave up a career in advertising to pursue his love of gelato. He traveled to Italy to go to Gelato College (yes it exists and yes you want to taste gelato made by someone who has been there) and returned to Perth having perfected the craft. He just loves gelato that much. You’ll find the store in the heart of Leederville, it’s small and colourful, in candy tones that scream gelato shop. We took our time to make our selections, perhaps greedily, choosing one scoop each for $5. We tried the South Park special, salted caramel, smashed with a chocolate mousse cream and crushed peanuts. This gelato was creamy, rich and delicious. The star was without a doubt the salted caramel. The flavour was …

West End Deli Revisited

You might remember a certain sizeable crumpet that had you drooling into your computer screens, or maybe it was the build your own breakfast menu that had you salivating. Either way we knew that we would back at West End Deli for more before too long! The cafe still had that rustic charm and the staff were as we remembered them, impeccably dressed and upmost professionals, giving breakfast a bit of a fine dining shake down. We sat near a window, the light streaming in from the beautiful day outside and started off the meal with drinks. We were more impressed with our lattes this visit, they were creamy, smooth and balanced with a nice flavour. Instead of a milkshake we tried this monstrous berry smoothie. It was nice and thick, though a tad icy and the flavor was quite tart, almost saved by the creaminess of the yogurt. Our meals came out promptly and the slab of bacon with our bacon and scrambled eggs was truly a sight to behold. We selected bacon and …

Piccolos Corner Revisit

Piccolos Corner is a suburban haven in West Leederville that we’ve really loved on a previous visit and have been really looking forward to heading back to. They were already busy on a Sunday morning and we loved all the locals milling around and having a chat outside. Piccolos Corner really has built up that community spirit they’re after with their little ‘corner store’. We started with coffees, the perfect way to begin a Sunday morning. The coffee here is pretty decent and they were kind enough to give us seconds on the house because there was a bit of a wait for the food. We’d expected the wait because it was a Sunday and were really impressed by their generous offer. Out first dish was the sun-dried tomatoes and scrambled eggs. The eggs were nice and creamy and the tomato had a good flavour but wasn’t that prominent. We found the balsamic glaze to be a bit overpowering but overall this was a good breakfast option. We also tried their bircher museli and were …

Hylin West Leederville

If you’re looking for the latest and greatest venue to hit the coffee scene you’ll find it at Hylin West Leederville. The space is open and refreshing with a definite hipster vibe and some awesome wall art. You’ll need to grab a menu and place your order at the counter. The menu is mostly light options at the moment with some tempting treats to be found on the counter. Hylin use Micrology coffee beans and serve a rich and creamy brew at a good temperature. We would certainly go back for more! Our first dish was a museli with natural yogurt. It was presented beautifully with fruit, coconut shavings and museli atop the yogurt. It had s good crunch but for the amount of yogurt more museli was necessary. This was a healthy, light and refreshing breakfast. We also ordered the scrambled eggs on toast to which we added bacon and avocado. It was served on a nice multigrain toast with creamy and a little cheesy eggs. The bacon was an absolute winner, delicious, thick, …

Sayers with Savour the Moment

One of the wonderful things about the food blog is connecting with like minded foodies and a shared love of food is best expressed over a meal. With that in mind I met with Lyvia from Savour the Moment for a lunch date at Sayers Food in Leederville. I had forgotten how absolutely atrocious parking around Leederville is around lunchtime, and after far to many laps to recount I eventually snagged a spot and made my way over to Sayers. Sayers is a really inviting venue, with tables both outside and inside, and heaters keeping us nice and toasty on a blistery winters day. If you haven’t headed over to Savour the Moment, be sure to check them out. The blog started about the same time as frenchtoastandindiepop, a joint initiative between Lyvvs and Anna. They sample everything, from brunch food to Korean dinners, and everything in between, true foodies at heart! I’m sure there will be many more catch ups to come, but I should probably talk about the food before I get too …

West End Deli, Leederville

You’ll find West End Deli on Carr Street in Leederville, in a bit of a suburban haven. Inside the cafe is a clash of wood and sleek black. It is at once both playful and cleanly professional. The staff continued the good impression of the decor and took our coffee orders promptly as we sat down, returning soon after with menus and water. The service was that wonderful balance of attentive without being overcrowding, it helped that they too were immaculate in black with accentuating white aprons. We found the menu here to be a bit out of the ordinary, its one of those that you’re already planning your next visit before you’ve even placed your order because there’s so much you want to try. Part of our excitement was the ability to design your own breakfast, but you’ll hear more about that in a moment… First up was the coffee. Its one of those coffees you often get from places that are all about their food, something decent but obviously lacking the effort that …

Jus Burgers, Jus Awesome!

On a chilly Wednesday night we were invited to the newly refurbished Jus Burgers in Leederville to check out their new menu. The store has a bit of a Melbourne feel, a rustic but polished edge and the narrow restaurant makes you feel just a little like you’re in a laneway. You’ll find that the Jus Burgers stores all have their own feel to them, but the Leederville store seems to be a bit of the flagship. Inside it was warm and cozy, it was bustling for a mid week as it seems that everyone else had the same idea as we did. We had a lovely chat with Justin Bell, the Jus behind the burger bar. He is such a passionate man, who really loves his food, and it was great we could lure him away from the grill to talk to us. Not only does Jus run all five burger bars but he is also behind Pinchos, making him a very busy man indeed. Along with the newly refurbished Leedy store, Jus Burgers …

Piccolo’s Corner: Leederville

As soon as we walked in we knew we loved this cafe, it was just so quirky, but so homely at the same time. Whoever recommended it, thank you thank you thank you! The decor is eclectic and vibrant, plenty of bright colours and designs. We sat by a window near the door, a view of the quiet suburban street and the people coming and going from the cafe. We ordered our usual lattes and they arrived promptly. They were large for a dine in size, and came in adorable cups. The coffee was too hot, but it had a nice flavour and creamy milk, if we lived on the street we would get our coffee from there for sure! The menu was full of interesting breakfast choices. Being rather fond of beetroot we went for the beetroot pesto and goats curd dish. It was a divine mix of salty, creamy, goodness. With two eggs poached to perfection and the mix of tangy pesto and creamy and salty goats curd, just yum! The curd became …

Cheap Eats: Smuggled Seeds Espresso Leederville

Just a bit further along Oxford st then the usual coffee shops, like Foam, Duende, Sayers and Greens & co, you’ll find Smuggled Seeds Espresso, a quaint espresso bar with a limited breakfast menu. We are the kinds of people who love good coffee, and will go out of our way to seek it, having ‘espresso’ in your name and adorning the walls with coffee love is always heartening. While we do eat at cafÊs with mediocre coffee for the sake of a great meal, good coffee is important to us, and the fact that Smuggled Seeds actually has it is music to our ears. They use a 5 senses seasonal blend, and we weren’t there long before we overheard the barista passionately discussing the coffee, making us two very happy diners. Our coffee was great, good temperature, smooth and creamy, with a nuanced flavour, just divine and just as we had hoped. One of the things that struck us about this cafe’s menu was that though it was quite limited, they managed to pack …
