John Street Cafe, Cottesloe

Posted in - All Day Breakfast & Breakfast & Coffee & Dog Friendly & Perth Cafes on December 29th 2012 5 Comments hotcakes

John Street Cafe sits away from the main strip of Cottesloe Beach nestled between stylish residency homes in the leafy green seaside suburb of Cottesloe.

There is always a few super hot days during December and the weather has well and truly arrived. Day 3 of close to 40 degrees we head out for some breakfast just before noon.  I can say that it was rather peaceful and breezy sitting outside under the Norfolk trees.

The bright blue exterior makes the cafe easy to spot and it also makes me want to go for a swim!

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 cheese incorporated into sweet dishes, it adds a more depth in the 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 and when sliced they were nice and gooey.

The total bill for the two of us was $49.50, which is typical of Perth prices and the service, atmosphere and food will definitely entice us for a return visit soon.
