Early Saturday mornings are always incredibly hard if not impossible at all, our guests were checking out of the apartment and this meant we had to ‘do the needful’ in preparing it for the next guest which was scheduled to arrive later that morning. Before doing ‘the needful’ we stopped by Lawley’s Bakery Cafe in Shenton Park for coffee and breakfast. Breakfast runs from 6:30 am to 1:30 pm every day of the week, impeccable timing for us.
With the hardest part of waking up well behind us, it was kind of nice and peaceful to be at the cafe so early. We sat outside at a table that seemed to catch the warmth of the morning sun. It was really comforting to have that first coffee of the day outside in the fresh air whilst waiting for breakfast to be prepared and brought out to us. Lawley’s have their own blend of coffee beans and the Cappuccino and Long Mac were just right, they may have even been the first ones brewed for the day. I loved the complimentary biscuit that accompanied the coffees.
The chocolate croissant went well with our coffees however next time I will ask for the croissant to be warmed up.
Chocolate Croissant ($1.80)
The breakfast menu can be found at the counter and there is a good range of foods to choose from at reasonable prices. As Lawley’s is also a bakery the bread and croissants are baked on the premises in the kitchen behind the counter. I had a tough time choosing between the Nutella Pancakes and something slightly healthier. In the end I went with the trusty eggs on toast menu item and choosing the eggs to be scrambled.
The eggs were scrambled and served with two slices of toasted Ciabatta bread, It may sound like a very plain breakfast but this is exactly what I wanted. Of course, if you would like to spruce up the eggs on toast or any menu item there are extras which include bacon, mushroom, tomatoes, hash browns chipolatas, eggs and toast. The extras are priced at $3.00 per item. The Ciabatta is the ultimate bread for breakfast, a rustic style of bread with holes on the inside and a crisp crust. This dish was value for money at only $11.50 in comparison to nearby places.
Eggs on Toast ($11.50)
Derek’s Eggs Benedict was served with two slices of Ciabatta, 2 poached eggs, sliced ham and a creamy hollandaise sauce. Derek really rated Lawley’s Eggs Benedict, the hollandaise and the poached eggs were perfect. The ham and bread was fresh. Again, value for money here at only $14.95.
