Mary street for one last time

One of our favourite places in Perth for a reliably delicious and wonderfully interesting brunch has been Mary Street Bakery (if you want to see our previous exploits you’ll find them here, here, and here) and so it was with mixed emotions that we made the visit in preparation for our move over East. We were early enough to be seated inside along the window, a perfect location for people watching and basking in the morning sunshine. As with most of our coffees here, this Pound brew was delicious. It’s hard to be as consistently good as their coffee tends to be and we’ll miss their creamy goodness! Their second coffees don’t fail to deliver either. Ours was smooth and creamy, a mellow flavour with a hint of honey and served hot, but not too hot. We also once again opted to try what we have affectionately nicknamed their ‘everything smoothie’. It’s a whole lot of fruit and a bit of love thrown in together. The serving was smaller this time but actually a lot …

Mary Street Bakery… Again

Ah Mary Street, we seem to visiting your cafe rather a lot of late, to be fair though, photos have been plastered all over social media of the two dishes we went in to try… Again. Theres so many great dining locations in Mount Lawley and the fact that we continue to return to this one says a lot for serial foodies with a mile long to-visit list. Our coffees were perfect as always, both our first and second. Mary Street Bakery do Pound coffee proud with smooth and creamy blends which really bring out the flavour. Two thumbs up from us! The first of the much spoken about meals was the chicken buttermilk pancakes with egg, maple and chilli. This was one of those dishes that just works, and each bite is thrilling, not least because there’s a bit of a chilli hit. The chilli was definitely biting, but the sweetness of the pancake, chicken and maple balanced it out, and together, wow! This was a very filling dish and we didn’t manage to …

Mary Street Bakery Revisit

Yeah yeah, been there, done that right? Well in the case of Mary Street bakery, somewhere with a constantly updated menu and a stream of delicious pastries, a revisit is always necessary! Once again we were impressed by the vintage, predominately wooden decor and relaxed atmosphere of the venue. We were given menus and had our coffee orders taken promptly, though as we arrived on opening time it took a while to get our drinks. The coffee was fantastic, creamy and the perfect temperature from when it arrived at our table. The flavour was beautiful, strong without being bitter. Our second coffees were just as impressive, a real testament to the consistency of the baristas here. We ordered both a savoury and a sweeter dish to sample, the granola and the pig in a blanket. Our sweet dish this time was a gluten free granola, with coconut milk and mango. Now this is our kind of granola, extra crunchy, with lots of interesting textures throughout. The coconut milk added an extra flavour dimension to the …

Back at Mary Street

Yeah, when we walked out after breakfast a few weeks ago and saw the pastries on display we knew we would be back at some point… We’ve tried a number of things since then and all have been to die for! If you’re going to have bakery in your name we’re going to expect a lot from you and Mary Street Bakery certainly delivered! This is their salted caramel tart. It was oozy, sugary, chocolate coated goodness. So rich but so tasty! What you can see now the circle of heaven, this is the hazelnut flavored though they offer others on any given day. In taste and texture it resembles a cronut with a creamy hazelnut centre. It’s crispy, creamy, flaky form of delicious all at once. Mary street bakery is known for their delicious donuts, we only tried a sugared donut, but it was everything a donut should be. Before donuts were mass produced supermarket fodder (and probably before my time) I am certain that this is what a donut should taste like! Last …

Mary Street Bakery

Mary Street Bakery is a new addition to the array of food options available on Beaufort Street Mount Lawley, it’s by the same guys that are behind ย Cantina 663, Ace Pizza (another new venue I can’t wait to try) and El Publico. ย They pride themselves on delicious baked goods and coffee. The best bit is that ‘bakery’ is not just a name, they actually have an artisan bakery out the back. As you enter there’s a retro vibe, wooden chairs, tiled walls and a huge counter covered in delicious morsels. We sat in a table by the window, sun streaming in and a great view of the hustle and bustle of the busy street outside. We started with a tasty Pound coffee (find themย http://poundcoffeeroastery.com.au and on Facebook), which was smooth and flavoursome, better yet it was local. They even won some awards recently over East for their coffee. There were plenty of choices on the menu, and all of them sounded appealing, from baked goods to the more substantial meals. We selected the sweet pancakes …
