I finally tried the Tuck Shop Cafe for brunch last week. I have heard a lot about this place and decided to see what the buzz was about.
When we got there, we had to wait in line for a table, but the waitresses were lovely and found us somewhere to sit within 15 minutes.
The menu has something for everybody, including breakfast dishes, pancakes, nasi goreng, cheese kransky, meatballs, and salmon. Every dish was described beautifully and I wanted to try them all. There is also a chalkboard with daily specials, and I chose a date, banana, honey and cinnamon smoothie from the specials board.
My partner had coffee – which was Toby’s estate. This was nice coffee, but not the best in Perth.
For my meal I chose the chorizo with paprika potatoes, peppers, spanish onions and crispy pork belly with fried egg. This was absolutely delicious – and very filling.
My partner chose the beans with ham hock, parmesan toast and fried egg. There were some home made onion rings on top. This dish was extremely tasty.
The cafe also has a nice range of cakes. We chose a brownie and a strawberry lamington for afternoon tea at home. They were very nice.
I will definitely return to the Tuck Shop Cafe – I am keen to try the other offerings on the menu. Based on the brunch that I had last week, I can see what the hype is about. The Tuck Shop cafe is one of the best cafes in Perth.
