Every morning I drive past Vili’s cafe on Hay Street hoping to stop in but as I am always running late for work I reluctantly continue driving right past, until this morning.
Vili’s was started by the Milisits family in Adelaide who fled communist Hungary to start a new life in Australia. Over the years from small beginnings the Vili’s brand has grown into a nationally and internationally recognised name for its pies. The pies are handmade using 100% Australian meat and there is also a range of Halal Certified pies. Pies include Australian style cornish pasties, steak and mushroom pie, beef, cheese and bacon pie, chicken pie, lamb, mint and rosemary pie and pasties with real vege.
The Jolimont Cafe serves up ‘eat me straight away’ warm pies ($6.00) as well as frozen ‘take me’ home pies ($5.00 each). We ordered a few takeaway coffees and the last of the caramel slices. Vili’s Cafe use a Brew Ha coffee bean blend in their coffee and our takeaways were pretty good. The caramel slice was beautiful, the caramel smooth. I will have to return and try the pies!
I particularly liked the coffee menu; the coffee was priced according to the shots in the coffee. Sometimes you order a regular thinking you are receiving a double shot of coffee but to be served one.
Small 1 shot $3.50
Regular 2 shots $4.00
Large 3 shots $5.00
Vilis is a short drive from Subiaco’s town centre, if you feel like a leisurely walk it is only a 20 minute walk away from Rokeby Road.
Frozen pies are $5.00 each and warm pies to go are $6.00
The cafe is a 15 minute walk from the Subiaco centre.
