The start of a new month and we are getting close to Christmas. Can you all believe it? Well, let me start the new month with a breakfast review. We decided to check out Fez which was only down the road.
With its Moroccan overtones, Fez Cafe brings yet another multicultural dimension to the already diverse dining scene in Mount Lawley.
The main trade here is in slightly left-of-centre breakfasts. The Moroccan flavours aren’t so dominating that you can’t get a straight-up-and-down eggs Benedict or something similarly traditional, but the Berber’s breakfast offers a nice point of difference. This is definitely one to check out next time you’re in the mood for something decidedly different to the same old eggs ‘n’ bacon.
Located on the corner of Walcott St and Raglan St, this café has been fitted out in a modern decor, complete with dark colour-pallette, fancy light-fittings and leather wall-seating. There were the option of indoor dining or if it was a lovely day, there was outdoor undercover dining too. As it was a cold wintery day, we took our place indoors.
John has been raving about Fez and said their breakfast is good. Well, I’ll be the judge of that! We ordered a coffee for John and I went with a hot chocolate order.
For breakfast, John went for Fez Big Breakfast and I must say it is massive. There were scrambled eggs, bacon, chipolatas, grilled tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms and baked beans along with a side of toasted wholemeal sourdough bread. The scrambled eggs were creamy, bacon crispy and the baked beans were delicious too. John pretty much polished the lot so it does say something about how good it was.
I ordered the Berbers breakfast and my goodness, it was so good! It is veal meatballs with a caramelised onions, olives, capsicum in a tomato pasta sauce topped with a couple of fried eggs served with a couple of toasted wholemeal sourdough bread. That sauce was amazing, the flavours were great and you can taste the sweetness coming through from the caramelised onions. You can soak up all that sauce with the bread as well. The meatballs were cooked perfectly, tender and moist on the inside.
I would definitely like to head back to Fez and try out their lunch or dinner menu. The service was good, nothing to complain there as the food was served promptly. The front of house staff was friendly and attentive. They also have an amazing array of cakes and sweets available if you’re up for something sweet. The meal came up to $48 which was pretty reasonable seeing the size of both dishes.
On the whole, 8 for food quality, 8 for atmosphere, 7 for pricing and 8 for service.
