The Ladder Cafe & Deli, 167a Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn, Phone 9242 1688.
I Want To Break Free … It’s been some time since I’ve felt claustrophobic in a Café. But, unfortunately, I experienced that feeling last week.
Rockefeller, 448 Beaufort Street, Highgate.
Don’t Forget The Pickle … Rockefeller officially opened yesterday and brought their New York Deli style food to Perth. Think stacked Pastrami, house smoked Salmon, proper dill pickles and dense, chewy bread.
Tuck Shop Cafe, Pie-House, Delicatessen, Unit 1 / 180 Newcastle Street, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9227 1659.
I Got You, That’s All I Want … For me the idea of a Gourmet Pie Shop is like Satori, Nirvana, Shangri La. Um, you get the idea, I like Pies. So, Tuck Shop Café is a Pie Shop and Delicatessen run by one of Perth’s Top Chefs. Making this place the virtual Pie Mother Ship. So, off I went to Northbridge.
Fresh Provisions Mount Lawley, 77 Walcott Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9227 6309.
Treat City … Fresh Provisions isn’t a very large shop but what they cram into that Store is unbelievable. This is my go to place for a treat and I can always find something that appeals to me.
The Checkout, IGA Leederville, 313 Vincent Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 9444 8431.
Gourmet Treats … The Checkout is a section of IGA in Leederville. It is a place to go for take home meals. Loads of quality meals ready to eat after a few minutes in the microwave. Think fresh Penne with a Tomato and Pesto Sauce with a few Kalamata Olives scattered around.
Scutti Markets, Shop 5, 67 Angelo Street, South Perth Wa 6151, Phone 9367 7688.
The Ultimate Delicatessen … Wow, Scutti Markets is a treasure trove of food. I used to come here years ago when it was called The Wingnut. It was the place to go for Cheese and Coffee. Oh, and Chocolate. I remember buying Lindt Chocolate and wondering what it would be like. But I digress. Back to Scutti Markets.
The Re Store Northbridge, 72 Lake Street, Northbridge Wa 6003, Phone 9328 1877.
Italian Chocolates … Unlike it’s sister store in Leederville, the Re Store Northbridge does not sell wine or spirits. But it has a very attractive outdoor dining area, right on Lake Street. Where they fit right in with the other cafes on the strip.
Charlies Fresh Food Market, 497 Walter Road East, Morley WA 6062, Phone 9279 1470.
Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne … Charlies Fresh Food Market in Morley has been around since 1964. It has undergone a couple of name changes and one building change since then. But, at heart, it’s still that same corner deli.
