Shout out to miss Linley Wall for suggesting this post!
I love breakfast. In all forms.
Toast with peanut butter, banana slices and cinnamon
A big bowl of porridge with swirls of honey
Smashed avocado and feta with a poached egg
A green smoothie
A bowl of cereal
Oh, it’s just the best, and without a doubt my favourite meal of the day.
It is also the most important, as they say…
Breaking the fast from a good night’s sleep is so important to kick-start your metabolism and restore your glycogen levels; so you have energy throughout the day. Eating a healthy breakfast within an hour of waking up can help your lil’ body out in so many ways. Plus: it’s delicious!
Luckily, in Perth, we have SO many options for a decent brekky. Sure, you can eat at home (which I often prefer), but sometimes a sunny Sunday calls for a breakfast outing.
My favourite spots to hit in the wee hours include;
Sayers 244 Carr St, Leederville
The classic, the go-to, the Godfather of Perth Breakfast. I’m still dreaming of their muesli, honestly, it was the best goddam muesli I’ve ever eaten.
Equally as amazing, is their sister café (although, now the original is owned by different people) Sayers Sister. If you like Moroccan spices, please try the tagine.
Mary Street Bakery 507 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley
If you’re hungover, get the fried chicken buttermilk pancake. But be prepared to wait, which isn’t always the best idea for a hangover – but trust me, it’s worth it.
Hylin 178 Railway Parade, West Leederville
I’ve said it before, and will say it many times over; best breakfast. Get anything on the menu.
Yelo 331 West Coast Drive, Trigg
Fantastic coffee, the best view, hottest staff, and this ^^^ heavenly Acai smoothie.
Go after a surf or swim in the ocean, with salty skin and crispy hair.
The Little Bird Café 100 Lake Street, Northbridge
If you get anything other than the pancakes, I’m afraid we can’t be friends.
Although… if you bring me a slice of cake, I could be persuaded. I haven’t tried one yet, but they look SENSATIONAL.
Haynes Street Larder 2A Haynes Street, Kalamunda
The perfect post-mountain bike stop-off. The coffee is delightful, and they have the best selection of ‘everything-friendly’ snacks. This terrible photo is of their superfood bircher muesli, made with almond milk and coyo.
I have obviously left out so many from this list, e.g. the whole of Fremantle, but I believe in saving some goodies to try.
The next spot on my list is Flora and Fauna!
