Mmm… Toast.

Monday, June 28th, 2010

A few months ago I read about a new cafe in East Perth aptly named Toast. Unsurprisingly, they sell a wide variety of grilled bread. Well, the actual toast is probably restricted to about 6 variations, but the toppings are where things start to get interesting. From sweet to savoury, simple to elaborate, every combination that you can ever dream of is available and I have a sneaking suspicion that if you asked nicely enough they’d make whatever you wanted.

I ventured out into the cold with a group of friends for Saturday breakfast and, as we basked in the morning sunshine down by the East Perth canals, it was a very pleasant experience. Considering the location, one could expect to pay extra just for the privilege of sitting amongst the rich, but Toast is like a lonely Leederville rabbit lost in the upper-class forest. It is hip and cool, the service is young and vibrant and the food gets served on some snazzy retro plates.

Sadly, I forgot my camera so no photo of what I ate. I chose the fruit toast with grated apple, spiced ricotta and honey and was a little disappointed that the apple was cold. I suppose my frozen core temperature was desiring some warming poached fruit but not so. It also made the toast go soggy which is one of my biggest hates. When I eat toast I let it cool slightly before applying any condiments because soggy toast is the worst. THE WORST. The taste was pleasant but I probably won’t choose it again. Everyone else enjoyed their food but no one was really blown away. I guess the saddest part was that the toast itself was clearly out of a packet. My usual Sunday breakfast at Il Circolo is New Norcia fruit bread and I would choose that over my apple toast any day. But the coffee was good and the view was lovely. I recommend the experience.

I just wanted to share my breakfast with you. Fear not, there will be no regurgitating of food, but simply photographs of delicious New Norcia fruit toast and the sign to look forward in order to get some. Every Sunday, my male companion and I head to Il Circolo on Angove Street in North Perth. The service is lovely, the cafe is comfortable yet buzzing, the coffee is delicious and the food is tasty. And to top it all off, it is located in a quaint neck of North Perth that is growing into a Melbourne-ish locale. Highly recommended.
