The boys went on the HBF Bike Run so Audrey & I decided to take Caleb and have breakfast at East Perth. We really wanted to go to Toast but it was so packed that we went to Partisan which was only next door. The large umbrellas and wooden tables at Partisan with a million dollar views was inviting rather than waiting to grab a table at Toast.
Located on the waterfront at East Perth, t he concept for this eatery is based on the simple splendor of produce-driven European provincial cooking. There are no bells and whistles here, no gels or foams or emulsions. What is here is food of true substance and quality. The menu roams freely between southern European and Mediterranean influences without feeling too scattered. Expect to see French terrines sitting comfortably alongside Middle Eastern grilled chicken with harissa and tabboulleh or an Italian-style pan-fried mullet with romesco sauce, definitely must go back and try it out at lunch or dinner.
We decided to share our breakfast as we were heading into the William St Festival after and wanted to try out food the festival may have to offer so we didn’t want to fill our tummies up. We started out with a large glass of fresh tropical juice made of mango, orange and pineapple which was lovely and so refreshing.
We shared the one pan breakfast which had eggs our way and we had our sunny side up served with toast, bacon, mini sausages, roasted tomatoes and field mushrooms. How could one go wrong with that breakfast? The bacon was crisp and slightly charred and the eggs were perfectly cooked with a gooey yolk centre. Although I did find that it was a rather small serving but the price was pretty reasonable for the serve. It cost us $25 for the breakfast and the two juices. The service is individual and friendly, the decor is darkish and sophisticated. I dare say this maybe a good place to have a drink, nibble on a charcuterie plate and savour the view without pretentious nonsense.
