Domain on Loch

Posted in - Breakfast & Coffee & Perth Cafes on July 6th 2013 8 Comments Leanne Pearce

This morning we took my little car to the garage for its major service and luckily for us there was a cafe around the corner for a much needed breakfast and coffee retreat, to distract my thoughts of the car service cost.

Domain on Loch sits on a corner street in neighbourhood surroundings, the cafe is housed in a restored character home typical to the Claremont area. I was initially drawn to the cafe simply by the appearance of the chairs located outside, they resembled a high heeled shoe which I thought was pretty cool.

Domain
Claremont has quite a few cafes nestled in its neighbourhood streets and I am finding them to be a quiet haven from the bustling city cafes. Domain on Loch is also a catering business providing platters, buffets, finger foods and organised function menus.

Inside the cafe there was a little ‘beach shack’ looking space separated from the front counter area. One wall was adorned in recipes and food photos and the odd article from old magazines, quite possibly Women’s Day Magazines – an iconic Australian Magazine that most Australian ladies would be familiar with.

Immediately upon taking our seats in a private corner of the cafe the lady took our coffee orders simultaneously and we were given the winter breakfast menu. Winter is my favourite season of the year and the reason I would not trade a frosty cold day in Perth over a warm summertime day is purely for the fact of food. I enjoy tucking into those rich warm hearty meals with thick sauces – burgundy beef, goulash, pasta, pumpkin soup.

Cappuccino

Domain Coffee
Domain on Loch use Karvan 100% Arabica beans in their brewed coffee and they also have an industrial coffee machine which you can admire when paying the bill. My first time trying the Karvan coffee blend and sipping on the cappuccino I noticed a slightly pleasant nutty taste and it was a fairly strong coffee despite the presence of milk.

Trio of free range eggs ($14.00)

I went with a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast and my chosen dish was served with a nice tomato base sauce and whipped butter.

Oven Baked Chorizo ($19.00)

Domain on Loch Street
Dk’s dish was a clear winner of choice for a winter dish and fresh from the oven it was a baked pot of chorizo sausage, beans, spinach and tomato sauce. The top had a layer of melted parmesan and cheddar cheese. The chorizo sausage was sliced and not diced, it was good to see a good portion of sausage in the dish.
