Holly Raye’s – Cafe – Coffee Shop – Brunch


Holly Raye’s, James Street, Bassendean WA 6054, Phone 0434 598 438.

Breakfast in Bassendean … The buzz about Holly Raye’s is exciting, although we are a little late to the party. It’s a tiny café just off the strip but it is bustling. Obviously the word has been out for a while that the food is good. About time we paid a visit then.

Firstly, I was really impressed with the décor. Calm blues and whites, even whitewashing the wooden floors to match the walls works really well. They have a retro style Smeg refrigerator which fits perfectly into the older style of the building. Also really like that the kitchen is partly visible through the doorway.

On entering the café we picked up a menu and took a seat to decide what we wanted to eat. Holly Raye’s is an order and pay at the counter style café. Suits us.

So we sat and surveyed the menu. One particular dish caught my attention, the Breakfast Guacamole, Black Beans and Jalapeno Corn Bread. That was the one for me. Xena’s sweet tooth took over and she had to have the Sticky Gingerbread, Vanilla Mascapone, Treacle Toffee Sauce, Poached Pear and Campfire Marshmallow. We just hoped the dishes would taste as good as they sounded.

Ordering at the counter went well with smiles all round. Must say the food display case was very enticing. The cakes looked amazing.

The wait for food was a little lengthy but considering how many people were ordering at once not too bad.

And, then the food arrived. Both dishes looked just great and they were quite large in size. Xena said her dish tasted absolutely amazing and she insisted I try some. She was right it was crazy good. The blend of treacle sauce, mascarpone and the gingerbread was awesome.

My dish had a very thick slice of jalapeno corn bread, with a generous scoop of the beans and guacamole. There were loads of herbs scattered over the top. And, char grilled corn kernals scattered around the plate. This was a really delicious breakfast.
