John Street Cafe sits away from the main strip of Cottesloe Beach among the trendy homes in Cottesloe, it’s vivid deep blue walls add to the laid back beach surroundings. Being brave and heading out into the ‘Perth heatwave’ for some breakfast just before noon, I can say that it was rather peaceful and breezy sitting outside under the Norfolk trees.
Lucky for us breakfast is served all day long and so I ordered the Hotcakes from the specials menu and DD ordered the Eggs Benedict.
The homemade hotcakes were served with cubed mangoes, drizzling of maple syrup, a dollop of smooth Ricotta and finished with a light sprinkling of powdered sugar and mint garnish. I absolutely love Ricotta with sweet dishes, it adds additional flavour than whipped cream.
The eggs benedict was served with two poached eggs, bacon on toast and a generous amount of hollandise sauce. The eggs were perfectly poached, when sliced they were nice and goey.
The total bill for the two of us was $49.50, which is typical of Perth prices and the service, atmosphere and food will entice us for a return visit soon.

40 degrees and the sun’s rays penetrate the trees, it is hot!
