Fez Cafe, 83 Walcott Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 9328 9999.
Kefalograviera … Try saying that three times quickly. The big K is a hard table cheese made with either Goat or Sheep’s milk. It was new to me and the stand out ingredient in my rather cluttered plate of food from Fez Café.
I say cluttered because truly there was a lot going on on top of a thick slice of chewy bread. Six field mushrooms were hidden under a pile of salad, red peppers, caramelised onions, radicchio and hazelnuts and dots of both green and red pesto. Oh, and salad dressing. The cheese was grilled and had hardened, it was salty, chewy and flavoursome, delish.
The Café is charming with all it’s bright colours and eclectic seating. I didn’t indulge but I love that they offer Breakfast Mimosas or a nip of Baileys in your Coffee.
There is a large display cabinet full of desserts and take away food. And, a rather nice outdoor eating area fronting onto Walcott Street.
The Coffee was so hot, perhaps a little too hot for me, and there wasn’t enough froth but it was strong and pleasant to drink.
