It is criminal how long it has taken me to get to
The Tuck Shop Cafe
178 Newcastle Street
PERTH WA 6000
It took a good friend to have a baby and therefore a week off work to basically say ‘it’s time, let’s go’ for it to happen but I got there!
Being a Thursday morning it was bustling with people getting take away coffee but there were plenty of tables available.
What sets the Tuck Shop Cafe apart is that their menu boasts some slightly less traditional breakfast dishes – think Chilli Con Carne, pie, etc. Plus, of course it has all of your usual suspects.
The interior is quaint, eclectic but in smart way and it comes together in a really comfortable, inviting manner. The loyalty cards up on the wall not only look great, but they also go a long way towards showing how popular this cafe is. I love the exposed lightbulbs and upside down planters. It’s a very welcoming feel. There is gourmet goods and coffee for sale and the service (TABLE service) is friendly and cheerful. My friend is somewhat of a regular here and I’m told they dote on his daughter and serve free babycino’s!
I decide on the mushrooms, spinach and feta on multigrain toast with an added poached egg, whilst Lex has decided to be really brave and try… bacon and eggs on toast (worst breakfast partner ever). D has been telling me about the Chilli Con Carne for months so I’m glad when he decides to order that so I can have a taste. Personally, I struggle a bit with the idea of red meat before lunch but a mouthful won’t kill me!
